The Mayo senior hurlers will be looking to pick up a win against Wicklow on Sunday that would be vital in ensuring the stay in Division 2A of the National Hurling League for next season.

Both sides have yet to pick up a point in the league this year having lost two from two, Mayo have tasted defeats at home to Kerry and on the road against Antrim in their last game a fortnight ago, when the Saffrons ran out 4-19 to 0-7 winners - while Kerry were 2-24 to 0-13 winners in Mayo's league opener at home to Kerry.

Wicklow have also tasted defeat at the hands of Antrim who were 0-20 to 0-11 winners in round one Aughrim and in round two they were beaten by Meath in a high scoring encounter with the Royal County winning 2-25 to 3-18 in Pairc Tailteann.

The visitors on Sunday won Division 2B last year winning four of their five league games, before beating Derry by four points in the final, the last times the sides met in the league came two seasons ago in Division 2B when Mayo ran out 1-22 to 2-16 winners in Ballina, and Derek Walsh will be hoping that his side can get a similar result this Sunday, with Offaly coming to Castlebar the following week and Mayo then wrapping up their league campaign away to Meath in Trim on the first Sunday in March .
