Ayr United manager Jim Duffy says he was disappointed his side did not take their chances, as they drew 1-1 with Hamilton at the weekend.

The Honest Men went into the Friday night kick off in the Scottish Championship looking to build on their draw a fortnight ago against Greenock Morton and turn one point into three.

However, it was the away side that grabbed the opener at Somerset Park, against the run of play.

Lewis Smith firing in a rebound after David Moyo’s header was saved by Charlie Albinson.

That was how the sides went in at the break, with the Honest Men ruing not taking their chances in front of goal in the first half.

They did grab a leveller in the second period however, as Tomi Adeloye stepped up for his second goal in as many games.

The striker heading in Jordan Houston’s cross to ensure the points were shared at Somerset.

Speaking to the Advertiser, Duffy said: “It was a decent game from both sides.

“I think both teams tried to win the game but over the piece we had the clearer cut chances and some really good ones.

“I think we played some terrific football in the final third and just did not capitalise on those chances.

“That was the main disappointment that we took from the game.”

A positive from the match was Adeloye getting back on the scoresheet on his gradual return to first team football after missing out for a period due to illness.

Duffy says he is delighted to have the Englishman back involved as he hopes his recent goalscoring antics can be a regular occurrence.

He said: “When he came into the side at first he was excellent and then he had a little dip, which is natural for players, and then he was ill.

“He has come back in the past two weeks and scored goals.

“Any striker who scores is invaluable and strikers can go on streaks.

“So let’s hope this is the start of a good spell for him and if that is the case then that will help.

“But we need everyone to chip in with goals and over the last couple of weeks we have had that.”
