And United suffered a further blow yesterday with the news that Finnish stopper Sinisalo was returning to Aston Villa for treatment on a groin injury. Ayr hope to a draft in an emergency loan keeper later today in time for tomorrow's game with Dunfermline at Somerset. And Hopkin said: "We know we are in a tough position and it is now about taking points at all costs. "We've got four games to go out and ensure our safety and the players have been left in no doubt what's at stake." Hopkin hopes to have Luke McCowan available after the playmaker limped off on Tuesday night.
