On Saturday, the Honest Men return to action after the international break when Queen of the South are the visitors to Somerset Park in the cinch Championship. The Honest Men will be looking to bounce back after a performance at Partick Thistle described as “absolutely shocking” by manager Jim Duffy.

The 4-0 defeat in Maryhill left United in seventh place in the league table, one point and one place behind tomorrow’s visitors and with a four point cushion over bottom side Dunfermline Athletic.

Opposition

Queen of the South were in action last weekend, defeating Partick Thistle at home in the SPFL Trust Trophy last Friday night. Lee Connolly got the first goal in the 69th minute with a long-range strike - a fifth goal in six games for the former Sunderland youngster - before Ally Roy sealed the victory in the 90th minute on his return from injury,

Connolly grabbed the only goal of the game in Queen’s last league outing, a 1-0 win at home to Dunfermline. That victory followed back-to-back defeats away to Inverness and at home to Arbroath.

Team News

Houston, O’Connor, Hewitt and McGinty miss out through injury.

The Manager Says:

“First and foremost we are looking for a positive response from the players after what was a very poor result last time out. We have been working hard on the training ground over the last two weeks to make sure that performances like the one against Partick are a rarity.

As a group we want to encourage people to come and watch us and give them a reason to get behind us and that is what we aim to do on Saturday”.

Last Meeting:

The third of three meetings between the sides last season failed to provide the drama of the first two, the match in April 2021 ending goalless at Somerset Park. Prior to this, the Honest Men and the Doonhamers had shared eight goals and six points.

The first league game of last season’s truncated campaign saw United get off to a flyer at Somerset Park in October 2020 when Michael Miller scored twice in the first 20 minutes to put Ayr in front. Stephen Dobbie pulled one back from the penalty spot 10 minutes into the second-half but James Maxwell was sent-off by referee Steven McLean for a second bookable offence and the Honest Men held on to take all three points despite having Luke McCowan ordered off in the 90th minute.

United thought they had earned a rare point at Palmerston in the first match of 2021 when Micheal Miller scored a late equaliser - only for Connor Shields to go up the park and ensure all three points stayed in Dumfries. Paddy Reading had given United an early lead, scoring in the 7th minute but a disputed Ayo Obileye penalty and Shields’ first of the game put the Doonhamers ahead going into the game’s dramatic denouement.
