Eamonn Phelan has warned his London side that their Christy Ring Cup hopes will be up in smoke unless they start producing for the full 70 minutes.
The Exiles recovered from a shambolic start against Mayo, where they conceded two goals in the opening two minutes, to lead by 2-10 to 2-3 at the break.
Phelan would have feared the worst after a poor start, but an unanswered 2-5 put them in the driving seat and they never looked back.

Scorers for Mayo: B Hunt 2-0, K Feeney 0-5 (5f), D McDonnell, K Higgins (1f) 0-2 each, D O’Brien 0-1.
