SHAUN HUTCHINSON will start a one-month loan deal with Ayr United on Saturday, but only if their Second Division clash against Stenhousemuir goes ahead this weekend.
Motherwell manager Craig Brown confirmed he is keen for his back-up defender (right) to get some game time but his one-month deal will only start when the weather improves.
“There is no point on him going to Ayr if they are not playing this week,” said Brown.
“We will know later on this week if their game against Stenhousemuir is on. If not, he won’t be going just now.”
He added: “The plan is for him to train with us and play for Ayr on match days.”
