Ayr boss David Hopkin says they Honest Men will be going for the win in their huge final game of the season against Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

The Honest Men’s 0-0 draw against Queen of the South at the weekend means Ayr are still in danger of finishing in the relegation play-off spot.

Results went against Ayr at the weekend to secure their spot in the Championship, however they were unlucky not to secure their own fate, coming close on several occasions to finding a winner against Queens.

Mark McKenzie, who was still recovering from a broken nose, started in the stalemate at Somerset Park but Corrie Ndaba missed out through injury.

Speaking to the Advertiser, Hopkin said: “Corrie has a scan for his foot planned this week and we will see how the results come back.

“If he is back then fantastic if not then I have to look elsewhere in the squad for players that are fully fit and going to give us everything for this last game.”

It is a tough trip up to the Highlands for the final game of the season against an Inverness side who were in a good run of form up until the past few games.

Their dip in form however meant the 3-0 loss to Champions Hearts last weekend mathematically ended their play-off hopes.

Despite now having nothing to play for going into this last game of the season, Hopkin insists Caley will still be keen to end their season on a positive note.

He said: “Neil McCann has come in and he has done a fantastic job.

“I know Neil well and he won’t want to let this season fizzle out.”

Arithmetically a point would do for Ayr with their relegation play-off spot rivals Arbroath and Greenock Morton both playing each other on Friday night.

However, Hopkin says they will be playing for the win.

He said: “You can’t go to any game looking for a point, if you look for a point and you don’t get it you get beat.

“I thought players responded great against QOS, hopefully we see a performance like that against Caley and I am sure we will get the point we need to stay up.”
