Alloa V Ayr - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.
McCann makes Ayr returnAlloa manager Paul Hartley has a full strength squad to choose from for the visit of Ayr.Captain Darren Young and striker Kevin Cawley have both returned to full fitness during the international break.Aberdeen youngster Nicky Low will also be added to the squad following his arrival on loan, meaning the Wasps are in fine shape to build on their recent 3-2 success at Forfar.Hartley said: "We played really well at Station Park and it was a terrific three points to pick up. It would be good to keep that going against Ayr."They are a good side but started the season slowly and are now setting out to show why they were one of the favourites for promotion, so we have to play well to win."Austin McCann returns for Ayr.McCann has served his suspension and is expected to be restored to the Honest Men's defence at Recreation Park.Fellow centre-back Martyn Campbell came through a reserve game in midweek following a knee injury and he is also included in manager Mark Roberts' squad.However, Darren Brownlie, Anthony Marenghi and Michael McGowan all remain out with injuries.Roberts said: "We have won our last three games and our dressing room is a much louder and confident place than it was when we were at the bottom of the league. Dropping to the bottom gave us a fright and everyone has responded well."We have a good spirit and hopefully that, aligned to a terrific work rate, will see us win at Alloa."
