Ayr United striker Mark Moffat recently celebrated scoring his 100th goal for the Championship side in their 2-0 win over Dundee.

However, he admitted that there was one downside to the occasion – his family weren’t able to attend the game in person to witness Moffat score such a landmark goal.

“My family would have been standing there”

“There’s a bit of disappointment when there’s no crowd here for such a big moment and my family would have been standing here as well watching it so it’s a wee bit disappointing that way but it’s just the way it is” Moffat said.

“It’s become the norm, and we’re kind of used to it, so we just need to get on with it as best as we can and hopefully, we’ll get fans back in sooner rather than later” the striker concluded.

Moffat might be in the veteran stage of his career at 35-years-old, but he has still managed to score three goals in nine appearances so far this season, which is a more than decent return.

Veteran will be vital player this season

If Ayr are to make a run at promotion to the Premiership this season then a player like Moffat is going to be very important. At the moment the Honest Men sit fourth in the league, five points behind the leaders Dunfermline.

That is a decent start to the league season.

However, their next challenge is the upcoming Betfred Cup tie against Livingston. That will be a real test of how near Ayr are to possibly winning promotion to the Premiership. Expect Moffat to feature in that game, his experience will be invaluable.
