Match Preview

Ayr United's Scotland Under-21 goalkeeper Alan Martin could start in the home clash with Alloa despite fracturing a finger. United manager Brian Reid is hoping his recent signing can play on despite the injury, but Martin could join the long-term absentees Bobby Donnelly and Dean Keenan on the sideline. Reid said: "Alan has had his finger taped up and we'll give him every chance to be ready. "This is the largest squad of players I've had available all season, so we're going into this game in good shape. "Our home record over Alloa is really good and I want that to continue, especially as picking up three points pushes us even closer to sealing a top-four spot." Alloa manager Allan Maitland will be without six players through injury and suspension. Maitland will attempt to arrest his side's slide down the table without suspended trio Scott Walker, Billy Gibson and Kevin Motion, while James Bloom has joined Nathan Taggart and Mark Brown on the injured list with a broken nose. David McClune will be included in the squad, Brown Ferguson will make his first appearance of the season following surgery last summer and David McGaughy will be promoted from the club's youth set-up. Maitland said: "We're short on numbers, particularly in defence and we're also short on confidence at the moment. "We really need a win to get our season going and stop this horrible run we're on."

Match Report

McCann downs Alloa Ryan McCann netted the game's only goal as Ayr boosted their promotion challenge with a hard-fought win over Alloa. Going into the encounter on the back of two consecutive league victories, the Honest Men started well and dominated the opening exchanges. It was the visitors who fashioned the first opening, though, when Michael McGowan struck just wide from range. But that proved their only chance in a poor first-half display, in which the hosts took a 45th-minute lead through McCann. Michael Moffat was the orchestrator, sending in a delicious centre which McCann duly converted. Alloa desperately tried to get back into the clash in the second period, but came up short as Ayr comfortably secured the three points.
