Ayr United Prediction

Ayr United return to Somerset Park on the back of two defeats on the trot against Falkirk and Inverness Caledonian Thistle, and although they still occupy second place in the Scottish Championship, Ayr have now gone five league matches without a win.

The hosts still find themselves just three points adrift of league leaders Ross County though, so a win on Friday night would actually see Ayr United move top of the division as they already possess a one goal superiority on the leaders.

Ayr United have put together a solid home record at Somerset Park too with stats of 5-3-1 18/8 which has seen them suffer just one defeat on home turf, that being a 1-0 loss to Falkirk in their last home match.

Four clean sheets and the prolific goalscoring exploits of striker Shankland (18 goals) suggests it shouldn’t be too long before we see a return to winning ways for the hosts.


Key-Facts – Ayr United v Dundee United

  • Ayr United have lost just once at home in the Championship
  • Ayr United beat Dundee United 2-0 in their last meeting at Somerset Park
  • Dundee United have lost just once in their last 6 away matches


Dundee United Prediction

Dundee United sit in third spot and level on points with Ayr United but possess an inferior goal difference of -14 versus their hosts as these two high-flying clubs go head-to-head again in the Championship on Friday night.

Overall, Dundee United have lost just once in their last six league matches which was a 2-1 loss away at Alloa Athletic, but the visitors have also picked up just two wins also during this sequence which were victories against Falkirk and Dunfermline Athletic.

Away from home, Dundee United have lost just once in their last six matches on their travels as well amidst an overall away record of 5-3-2 13/9 and they possess the second best defensive record away from home in the Championship.

Forward Safranko (8 goals) looks to be Dundee United’s best bet of scoring here in what promises to be a tight affair.

Betting Tips Verdict

Ayr United possess the second best defensive record at home while Dundee United hold the same away from home – the difference could be Shankland for Ayr United, and I’ll back the hosts with the draw no bet option in this one.
