GOALKEEPER Greg Fleming and manager Ian McCall are hoping to take something from tonight's (Tuesday) clash away to Dundee United after Ayr United eased their relegation worries with a vital victory.

The Honest Men defeated Dumbarton 2-1 at Somerset Park on Saturday to take them four points clear of basement side St Mirren.

Victory ensured they are unbeaten this term against relegation rivals Dumbarton.

Their visit to Tannadice is followed on Saturday by a trip to the 2021 Stadium to face Saints.

Fleming told Sportscene after the match: "It's a massive win for us and a good three points. I made some saves near the end but that's my job and the guys in front of me did well. If we had taken our chances we could have been a bit more comfortable near the end.

"Our equaliser came at a great time and that gave us a lift. Had Dumbarton won they would have been six points clear of us. It helps that Dumbarton have not beaten us this season and come the end of the season that could be be a big thing for us. But the game is past now as the manager says and we must focus on the next game. "

Looking ahead he added: "It would be a bonus if we could take something on Tuesday night, we will go up there and give it our best shot - you never know what can happen. Our equaliser came at a great time and that gave us a lift. The St Mirren game is a massive one and hopefully we can take something from that as well. But they are a very good side and have made some great signings."

Manager Ian McCall said: "We numerous opportunities one in particular from Alan Forrest who is a good finisher and should have scored to put the game to bed. When they went down to 10 men it made us a bit more nervy. We deserved to win but could have made it a lot easier for us. We now must aim to go to Tannadice and win and we are taking all of the games one at a time. I am not concerned about any other teams - only ourselves. Away from home we have been as good as anyone, we have won three and drawn one of the last five games."

United are boosted with the news that Declan McDaid and Jamie Adams are on the mend and in line to return for the St Mirren match.
