Match Preview


Ayr down to bare bones

Ayr United manager Brian Reid is down to just 10 first team squad members for the visit of Brechin City.

Defender Willie Easton and strikers Marc Roberts and Andy Rodgers are all banned while defender Bobby Donnelly and Scott Taggart are ruled out through injury with.

Reid has been left with no choice but to bring in youth team players to bolster the numbers in his squad.

The only good news is that midfielder Dean Keenan is available after suspension and that youngster Jonathan Tiffoney can play as his punishment for last week's red card at Elgin is restricted to Co-operative Cup duty.

Reid said: "I only have 10 first team players available at the moment and two of them are goalkeepers so it is not an ideal way to begin the league."

Brechin are waiting on the fitness of Callum Booth and Gary Fusco ahead of the trip.

On-loan Hibs full-back Booth and midfielder Fusco are both carrying knocks and will be assessed.

Defender Andy Cook may also miss out because of family commitments, however the creative Charlie King is available again after missing out last weekend.

Brechin travel to Somerset Park boosted by a fine win at Stenhousemuir last weekend and a stirring performance against SPL side Aberdeen in a midweek friendly.

Boss Jim Weir said: "Confidence is high after our last two games and we will travel to Ayr in good spirits.

"I do not know too much about Brian Reid's side, I just know that they will be looking to bounce back to the First Division quickly so we will need to play well to win."

Match Report

Brechin higher than Ayr A goal in each half from Gerrard McLauchlan and Craig Molloy secured an opening day 2-0 away win for Brechin over Ayr. McLauchlan opened the scoring after just seven minutes with a close-range finish from Neil Janczyk's right-wing cross. United's Gary Arbuckle had the chance to equalise before half-time but his headed effort from 12 yards was expertly turned around the post by City goalkeeper David Scott. Brechin dominated the second-half with Mark Docherty and Rory McAllister coming close with efforts from inside the penalty area. However, they could not find a second goal until five minutes from the end when Molloy, who had had an earlier shot saved by home goalkeeper David Crawford, slotted into the bottom corner with Janczyk again providing the assist.
