Tiffoney was 2nd half so not pertinent to 1st half discussion.
We went close a few time but a miss is as good as a mile, therefore irrelevant whether we missed by hitting the post & they missed by missing the target; both team had chances & we got closer than they did but we both missed. Yes we had a goal disallowed that looks a wrong decision to me but IMO, given the way Ayr had played - IMO they played very well, with some nice moves & at times looked a better passing team than us - then 2-0 would not have been a true reflection of both teams 1st half performances.
Second half they were a good bit better than us until the last 15 mins so I certainly wouldn’t have been surprised if it had ended 1-1; thankfully we showed a bit of quality in nicking the winner.
The move that put Dykes thru was good as was the save to deny him.
Moffat had an outstanding chance that he would normally have buried but he shanked it wide by some margin. He really ought to have scored and the move to set him up was good. Had he scored they would have been ahead. It was their best chance & they should have scored it... by your criteria, taking the second half in isolation, 2-1 to Ayr in that half wouldn’t have flattered them.
On yesterday’s performance the teams that finished above us will most likely finish above us again and the teams that finished below us will be a lot closer than last season.
Nevertheless... & perhaps we can agree on this... at least we are not St Johnstone fans
