Mark Kerr was left pleased with Ayr United’s application during a 0-0 draw with Dundee.
The Honest Men had opportunities to win the game, including a penalty which was saved by Conor Hazard. It was a 0-0 scoreline though, a third clean sheet in succession for the Ayr player-manager.
Kerr has been left pretty pleased with aspects of this draw. Whilst frustrations are present in not taking all three points, he says that there were plenty of positives in the Somerset stalemate ahead of a trip to Dens Park on Tuesday.
“I thought we asked questions, we made them uncomfortable,” said Kerr. “We defended what they are good at, throw-ins, set pieces. There was a couple of things we adjusted in the first 15 minutes but the boys did a job.
“I think we’ve did more than enough to win the game. I felt really comfortable, we had a right go at it. Our shape, we changed it to a narrow 4-3-3. We were positive right through the heart of them.
“Another clean sheet is great. I think the league is so tight, the frustrating thing is if we’d won we would be in an unbelievable position. We’ve got Tuesday to deal with, it’s a tough double-header.
“We’ll change tweak things and they’ll tweak things. It’s a game of chess when it’s a double-header.”
