Not many will give Westmeath a prayer against Dublin on Sunday but the in-form John Heslin is expected to continue his excellent Fantasy Gaelic scoring form.

The forward has racked up 145 points to date and will be central to the Lake County's hopes of causing what would be a major upset.

Dublin will fancy their chances of posting a big score and in Dean Rock and Bernard Brogan, they have two deadly finishers who are capable of wreaking havoc.

Brogan is currently 61 points behind the top-scoring Heslin but the three-time All-Star may well overtake the Westmeath man, should the Dubs retain their Leinster title.

Meanwhile, Wicklow's John McGrath (884 points) continues to lead the way in the county players' league table.

George Hannigan (Tipperary) has moved into second place and trails McGrath by 27 points.
