Ayr United vs Queen of the South
Saturday 24th April 2021. Kick-off 3pm.
On Saturday the Honest Men face a huge encounter in the context of the Championship season. The final home match of the league season sees the visit of Queen of the South who have plenty to play for themselves. Last weeks 4-0 defeat at Arbroath means United sit in 8th place in the table, ahead of Morton on goal difference. 3 points tomorrow would bring us within 1 point of Queens.
The Doonhamers have lost thier last two matches, at home to Raith Rovers and away at Dunfermline, seriously damaging thier promotion aspirations. Allan Johnston's side find themselves five points behind Dunfermline in fourth.
