East Fife V Ayr - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.
Bobby to raise the Barr for Fifers?Bobby Barr will go straight into the East Fife squad to face Ayr United.Barr joined the Fifers on a three-month loan deal from Livingston and is available to caretaker manager Gordon Chishom this weekend.Chisholm is sweating on the fitness of goalkeeper Michael Brown, who is rated 50/50 due to a calf injury.With back-up Andrew Collier already ruled out, Chishom boss could face a Saturday morning scramble for a keeper.The Methil man said, "Bobby will add value to our team and I am delighted that he has agreed to come here. We need to get a win and so do Ayr and he may provide a bit of magic to help us do that."Bottom-of-the-table Ayr look set to include player/manager Mark Roberts after he returned from injury in a midweek reserve game.Former Rangers youngster Adam Hunter is set for a midfield berth after suspension, but knee injuries keep both defender Martyn Campbell and midfielder Michael McGowan out.Roberts said: "We're at the bottom of the table because of really poor defensive errors. We're a good side going forward and our new loan signing Darrian MacKinnon showed his worth with two goals against Queen of the South last weekend.""We can be a really good side, but the only way we can get above East Fife and off the foot of the table is by being much better in defence."
