Ayr hopeful of Andy Graham return against Stenhousemuir

Ayr hope to have Andy Graham available after a knock when they look to bounce back from Saturday's 1-0 defeat to Brechin by beating Stenhousemuir at Somerset Park.

Everyone else in Ian McCall's squad is available, with the Honest Men's manager saying: "Saturday's performance and result was disappointing, especially as we had won three games in a row and were looking like the side we were at the start of the season again.

"We will need to get going again with a good performance against Stenhousemuir. Dunfermline are in a great position for the title but we will just try and win games and see where we end up."

Stenhousemuir will have Jamie Barclay in goal as on-loan Celtic shot-stopper Colin McCabe was dismissed during Saturday's 5-0 defeat by Dunfermline.

Allan Smith remains out with a groin injury, with manager Brown Ferguson saying: "This is a huge week for us as we play the top three sides. It got off to a disappointing start at East End Park in a game where we did not do ourselves any justice.

"We have Peterhead this Saturday and I want to be going into that game with a strong performance against Ayr behind us. Playing well in the next two games will set us up nicely for the rest of the season."
