Match Preview
Ayr United vs. Dundee

Ladbrokes Championship
Saturday 7th March 2020. Kick-off 3pm

Tonight (Tuesday), Ayr United and Dundee go head-to-head again at Dens Park following Saturday’s goalless draw at Somerset Park. A point for both clubs at the weekend closed the gap to second placed Inverness, who lost at Alloa. Caley are also in action this evening, hosting Queen of the South as the race for the play-offs continues.

 

Team News: Andy Murdoch, Craig Moore and Andy Geggan are out with injuries.

Mark says: “We have a lot of positives to take out of the last 3 games, of course we would have liked to pick up 3 points in our home matches but it Is difficult to fault the players. Tonight will be another big test and we are looking forward to a big pitch with a good surface. It is another game we are really looking forward to.”
