The battle for 2nd on Friday night football (Dundee United v Ayr)


Recommended Posts

Huge game in the race for 2nd place, Ayr win and we're right back in with a chance of getting 2nd but a win for arabs and they've pretty much sealed 2nd.

Think freshness of the squad has to prioritise recent performances unfortunately with the recent hectic fixture schedule and playing only last night potentially taking its toll come Friday night.

Doohan

Smith Muirhead Rose Harvie 

Murdoch Docherty Crawford McDaid 

Moffat Shankland 

Subs: Hare-Reid, Muirhead, Kerr, Cadden, Miller, Forrest, Moore

Certainly will be a closer contest than the first game at Tannadice i'm sure and honestly not sure what the outcome will be here with our best performances seemingly being on the road and Dundee United having some poor home results. Think the amount of games we've played recently might take their toll though.

Can see a draw 1-1.

Last time against United (at Somerset) I was absolutely convinced they'd turn us over and get revenge for the humping.

Can't call this one.

I reckon if we get an early (ish) goal we could well go and win again - but it'll probably be more cagey and they'll eventually put us to the sword.

Rose
Harvie

Geggan
Murdoch
Crawford
McDaid

Moffat
Shankland

2-2 draw
That looks good to me.

Mcdaid, shankland and moff have to start, obviously.

Kerr probably doesn't have the legs to play again so soon, and geggan provides some extra stability.

Not confident about this at all. Dundee Utd seem to have stepped up a level recently whilst we are out of sorts and coming off a heavy run of fixtures. They also owe us after a few heavy defeats and reckon it could be a difficult  night ahead

This one is hard to predict. Either side could win if they score more than the opposition or it could end in a draw. 

That’s the sort of analysis we’ve been missing.

They also lost at home to Queen of the South a couple of weeks ago.   We havent been great but are still very hard to beat
