Dunfermline Athletic vs. Ayr United
SPFL Championship Saturday 23rd January 2021.
On Saturday, the Honest Men travel to East Park to take on Dunfermline Athletic in the first of a double-header of games away from home – weather permitting. United have seen their last three matches postponed since the last-gasp defeat at Palmerston on 2nd January but will hope to restart their season at Dunfermline before a trip to face Dundee on Tuesday night.
Dunfermline sit in second place in the league table, seven points behind leaders Heart of Midlothian. The Pars have just one defeat this season, at home to Greenock Morton in December. Morton were also Dunfermline’s last opponents – a somewhat drab 0-0 draw at Cappielow last Friday.
Mark Kerr has a full squad to select from with on loan defender Corrie Ndaba pushing for a start.
The Manager Says:
Head to Head
Ayr United wins : 38
Draws : 31
Dunfermline Athletic wins : 58
Six of the last seven matches between the sides have been goalless or won by a single goal.
