Queen of the South | Match Preview

On Saturday, United head to Dumfries to face Queen of the South in yet another vital game for Jim Duffy and his men. The Honest Men have not won at Palmerston since August 2002 but with just a point separating the two sides, Ayr will be desperate to claim a precious victory on the road.

Ayr are unbeaten in their last three games in all competitions but are without a league win since their last outing against Queens back on 16th October. However, United were left frustrated after taking just two points from games against Morton and Hamilton after feeling they deserved more from the fixtures. Tomi Adeloye grabbed a 1-1 draw with an emphatic second half header to cancel out Lewis Smith’s first half strike for Accies. Ayr currently occupy 7th place.

Opposition

In similar fashion to their opponents, The Doonhamers have not registered a league win since October when they beat Dunfermline 1-0. They come into this fixture on the back of a thrilling 3-3 draw away to the same opponent’s last weekend. Queens took the lead three times only to be pegged back with the Pars finding an 88th minute equaliser to take a share of the points.

Despite languishing near the foot of the table, Lee Connolly has caught the eye for Queen of South after netting six times in the league so far and netted another stunning strike last weekend. Queens currently lie in 9th place – a point off the bottom.

Team News

Hewitt and Muirhead miss out through injury. Aidan McAdams and Jack Baird return to the squad.

The Manager Says:

“We were disappointed to take just a point from the Hamilton game as we carried a threat and had opportunities to win the game. There were positives to take and we have to build on them ahead of a really big game against Queen of the South. We want to give the fans something to be positive about heading into Christmas and we’ve been working hard this week to ensure we’re ready for the game.”
