Binos boss Greig McDonald believes the weekend off will benefit his squad.
There are no league games on Saturday due to the international break and that should allow a number of players time to shake off injuries.
We return to action against Brechin at Forthbank next weekend, with Forfar our visitors on September 20.
McDonald said: “I think the break has come at a good time. We’ve got several players with game-related knocks and the week off will be a big help.
“Apart from the Ayr game, we are happy enough with the start we have made and will look to build on that in the home games coming up.”
