Match Preview

Willis in for Ayr On-loan Dunfermline winger Paul Willis could make his debut for Ayr against East Fife. Willis is in the squad but the Honest Men are again without the long-term injured pair of Dean Keenan and Bobby Donnelly. Midfielder Ryan McCann is struggling to make it because of a back injury and striker Andy Rodgers is a doubt because of a hamstring problem with boss Brian Reid urging his players to bounce back from a defeat by Livingston in their last home outing. Reid said: "Our home form has been good for the majority of the season and I want us to get back on track straight away following the Livingston result. "This will be a tricky game as East Fife will be boosted by holding Brechin City to a draw on Saturday." East Fife defenders Mark McCulloch and Stevie Campbell are ruled out through injury for their trip. The duo will sit out along with midfielder Robert Sloan, with manager John Robertson looking to give former Hearts and Airdrie United youngster Ryan Wallace a second opportunity to impress as a trialist after a substitute appearance during Saturday's goalless draw with Brechin. Robertson is looking for his side to build on a fine performance at the weekend when they held Brechin. He said: "If we can come out of two back-to-back games against teams looking for promotion without losing a goal I am sure everyone will be delighted. "It would give us a real platform for the rest of the season but as you would expect I also want us to show more threat up front."

Match Report

Fife allay worries with thumping win East Fife eased their relegation fears courtesy of a shock 4-0 victory over promotion-chasing Ayr. Six places and 12 points separated the sides going into the clash with the visitors desperately needing a win to allay their worries. You would not have believed it, though, as the Fifers dominated the clash from start to finish. They took the lead in the 31st minute through James Hamilton's smart finish before Ryan Wallace doubled their advantage three minutes later, converting Lloyd Young's pin-point cross. Picking up where they left off, Fife were equally impressive in the second period as Matthew Park fired home just after the restart. Wallace then grabbed his second from just inside the area in the 66th minute to add further gloss to the scoreline.
