Team News: Ayr United
There is just the lone fitness concern for the Ayr United manager Mark Kerr to contend with from a near full-strength set of players. Craig Moore (Cruciate Ligament Surgery) misses out.
Team News: Dundee
Due to a mostly healthy group, there’s only the sole fitness problem for the Dundee manager James McPake to contend with. Jordon Forster (Fractured Foot) won’t be in action.
Our feeling is that Ayr United will do well to score goals against this Dundee outfit who we think should manage to score & go ahead.
Our tip is therefore for a good battle with a 0-1 winning score for Dundee at the end of the match.
Hoping for a good game.
