Match Preview

Ayr and Brechin set for promotion showdown Ayr manager Brian Reid is expected to ring the changes for the visit of Brechin after his side went down 4-0 to East Fife in midweek. Midfielder Alan Trouten is available again following suspension, however Willie Easton drops out as he begins his ban. Ryan McCann and Andy Rodgers will start if they prove their fitness beforehand, yet Dean Keenan and Bobby Donnelly remain sidelined. Reid said, "I will need to freshen things up as we were really poor defensively in midweek. We had a home record to be proud of until the last two league games against Livingston and then East Fife. "We have to look to put that right against a Brechin side who will be full of confidence after winning against Livingston in midweek." Brechin have survived an injury scare ahead of the clash with Rory McAllister passing a fitness test. The striker complained of a hamstring problem following the 1-0 win over leaders Livingston in midweek, however he is included in the travelling party bound for Somerset Park as third meets second in the Second Division. Manager Jim Weir has lost the services of defender Dougie Hill after his loan spell ended and he returned to Raith Rovers, while long-term absentee Charlie King continues to be ruled out. Weir said: "We won well against Livingston in midweek but face another really difficult test at Ayr. I was surprised to see their 4-0 defeat to East Fife and know they will be out to make amends against us."

Match Report

Ayr close gap after Brechin win Ayr cemented their position in third place following a 2-0 win over second-places Brechin at Somerset Park. Goals from Stuart Bannigan and Scott McLaughlin in either half sealed the win for Brian Reid's men as they closed to within two points of the visitors. In a first half full of chances, it took until the second minute of time added on for the opening goal as Bannigan turned in McLaughlin's right-wing cross from 12 yards. Ayr doubled their slender lead 18 minutes after the restart as McLaughlin rose highest in the area to powerfully head home Michael Moffat's cross from the left. Brechin struck the woodwork two minutes from time as Rory McAllister saw his effort from six yards rebound off the crossbar, but Ayr held on for all three points.
