DEJECTED Ayr United boss Mark Kerr was disappointed as his two-game winning run came to a disappointing end at Palmerston Park

He was frustrated a lot of their good work was undone by errors which cost goals as United went down 3-1 to the Doonhamers.

The boss said: “It’s a disappointing result.

“Coming to Queens is never easy, we knew the pitch wouldn’t play that great.

But no excuses. we got some bits of play in that we had worked on.

“We moved them about the pitch pretty well in the first half and put pressure on them in the first half and had a few chances.

“Then we switched off from a throw-in and let Dobbie in on his left and we didn’t match the runner down the side.

“That happened with the third goal as well. There was a switch of play from him for the third goal.

“We never capitalised on our own chances in the first half.”

However the boss could still take positives from the game and said: “We were in the game, it’s not as if it was backs against the wall for the 90 minutes. Michael Moffat had a good chance before the break and knocked the ball across the face of goal. That had given us a left going into the second half. It’s all about decision-making and doing the right things.”

The boss is hoping his side can sharpen up in forward areas.

He said: “The pitch was sticky but we have said when we get into areas we should get our shots away.”

Kerr was not overly concerned about Luke McCowan’s sending off and said: “I don’t know whether it was lack of discipline from Luke or he had just committed himself.

“There were gaps or holes after the sending off and for me that contributed to the third goal.”

United now have two free Saturdays owing to the international break and the William Hill Scottish Cup the following week.

They are next in action on Saturday, November 30 when Dick Campbell’s Abroath are the visitors to Somerset Park. That will come just a week after the Red Lichties have faced an Auchinleck Talbot side who knocked Ayr out of the Scottish Cup.
