Match Preview

Ayr boss Reid given selection headache Ayr United have selection concerns as they host Alloa. Dean Keenan and Ross Robertson are suspended following their dismissals against Forfar last weekend and defender Bobby Donnelly has been ruled out again through injury. Ryan McCann is a doubt, although winger Alastair Woodburn is included and may get a place on the bench. Somerset Park boss Brian Reid is hoping that his side show the form that saw off Livingston in their last home match as opposed to the display at Station Park last weekend when they went down 4-1. Reid said: "We need to put that behind us and look to get a win like we did against Livingston when we play Alloa who seem to have had a very settled side all season." Alloa boss Allan Maitland will pick from the same squad. Midfielder Brown Ferguson and striker Stuart Noble are still not ready for a first-team return so will be absent again, with Maitland likely to keep faith with the same side that beat Airdrie last week. Maitland said: "Ayr will come flying at us to make up for last weekend's 4-1 defeat at Forfar, our own 4-1 win over them and they will want to pick up where they left in their last home game against Livingston where they scored three times in the last 10 minutes or so."

Match Report

Ayr float into play-off zone Ayr moved into the Second Division play-off spots with a 2-1 home win over Alloa. Mark Roberts gave Ayr the lead in the 36th minute when he latched onto a Willie Easton pass and fired past goalkeeper Steve Robertson from 12 yards. Alloa had to wait until the 75th minute for their chance and it came from the penalty spot when Michael Dunlop was hacked down by Ebbie Malone inside the box. Kevin McDonald stepped up and confidently dispatched the penalty for 1-1. However, Alloa midfielder John Grant inadvertently sent the ball past his own keeper in the 83rd minute to put Ayr back in front and ensure they claimed all three points.
