Docherty gunning for Ayr start
Ayr midfielder Ross Docherty could make his first start in nearly three months following an ankle injury when Cowdenbeath visit.
The only absentee from manager Ian McCall's plans is Jamie Adams, who has a knee problem, with McCall determined his side should keep on winning games.
McCall said: "We fell behind Dunfermline and Peterhead when we had a horrendous run of injuries. As players have come back our results have improved so all I will ask the players to do is to win games and see what happens.
"Cowdenbeath beat us at their place just after Christmas and it would be good to make up for that."
Cowdenbeath welcome back Kieran Gibbons after a ban, however, striker Greig Spence is a doubt after picking up a knee injury in Saturday's 3-2 win at Stenhousemuir.
Kenny Adamson is struggling with a calf injury and a foot injury is keeping Kyle Miller out, with manager Colin Nish looking for his side to start well.
Nish explained: "The last time we played at Somerset Park we found ourselves a goal down in the first minute. That threw all our plans out and we ended up losing 5-0.
"If we can keep ourselves in the game then we will have a chance of adding to our win at Stenhousemuir on Saturday."
