AYR United striker Dipo Akinyemi was toasting his success again recently after he scooped another prestigious award.

It comes as the Englishman earned his second player of the season accolade - this time winning the Professional Footballers' Association Scotland (PFA Scotland) gong for the Championship's top star on Sunday, May 14.

The award was voted for by the players - which is testament to the massive impression Akinyemi has already made in Scotland since making the switch from the sixth tier of English football.

This is the forward's second award in only three days, after he was voted the Cinch Championship player of the season on Thursday, May 11.

Dipo fired 20 goals for United this season, also registering eight assists across 36 games played.

Akinyemi also won two cinch Championship player-of-the-month awards - in August and March.

Speaking to Sky Sports after his latest award, Akinyemi said the recognition has helped confirm that his choice to move north of the border was the correct one.

He said: "It's been a great season for me personally. It's been a great season for the club.

"We've got the play-offs to go but altogether it has been an amazing year and hopefully we can finish it on a high.

"I had to work hard and sacrafice a lot to come here and I'm just happy it's all paying off."

And as he illuded to, there is still time for Dipo to add to his tally, with the play-offs fast approaching for Ayr.

On a dramatic final night of Championship fixtures, United clinched second place in the league with a 2-1 win in the dying mmoments against Inverness. Had Ayr lost the match, they could have finished as low as sixth and missed the play-offs altogether.

Instead they earned a spot in the semi final, where they will face Partick Thistle.

Thistle will host Ayr United at Firhill on Friday, May 19, before the return fixture at Somerset Park on May 26.

The winners of the two-legged tie will face  the 11th place side in the Scottish Premiership for a place in the top league next season.

As things stand, it looks like that spot will be filled by one of Dundee United, Ross County, St. Johnstone or Kimarnock.
