Roberts stuck in dugout
Ayr player-manager Mark Roberts will have to be content with a touchline role against Arbroath after picking up a calf injury in his side's 4-1 win over East Fife last Saturday.
Defender Martyn Campbell misses out with a foot injury as the Honest Men look to repeat the 3-0 success over the Red Lichties that opened their season.
Roberts said: "We played really well at East Fife and it would be terrific to do that in front of our home fans.
"Arbroath are a good side but I would be delighted if we could chalk up another win against them."
Arbroath travel to Somerset Park without Ricky Little (foot), Connor Birse and Graham Bayne (both knee).
The Gayfield men head to Ayr boosted by a last-minute win over Airdrie.
Player-manager Paul Sheerin said: "We left it late but we deserved the win and I want us to build on it. It will not be an easy game to win if Ayr hit the heights they hit against us in the first league game of the campaign.
"The key to any success has to be in keeping Michael Moffat quiet."
