Match Preview

Frustrated Reid short of Ayr Bottom of the table Ayr entertain Livingston and the Honest Men are again short of bodies. John Robertson, Martyn Campbell, Alan Trouten and Sean Higgins all out injured. Manager Brian Reid's attempts to bring in a loan signing has not yet yielded results to leave the Somerset Park boss frustrated. He said: "We have the smallest squad in the Division as it is so to lose good experienced players has hurt us hard. "We will just need to patch ourselves up and get on with things and look to repeat the win we had over Livingston in the Scottish Cup. "They will be flying after a good win last week and be keen to build on that but I am sure our players will rise to the challenge." Livingston head to Somerset Park without injured duo of Jonathan Brown and David Sinclair. Midfielder Sinclair remains sidelined with an ankle problem, while former Hearts full-back Brown has suffered a knock. However, the Lions are on a high after a win in new manager John Hughes' first game last weekend over Raith Rovers. Stefan Scougall picked up a minor injury in their 4-0 success, however Hughes expects him to be ready come kick off time. Hughes said: "We will look to build on a good start but I have been in the game long enough to know not to get carried away. I have watched Ayr twice recently and they are a good resolute side that have a good mixture of youth and experience." "Ayr are one of my former clubs and I know how well backed they are by their fans so this will be tough."

Match Report

Honest Men slay Lions Scottish First Division strugglers Ayr boosted their hopes of survival after recovering from a goal down to defeat Livingston 3-1. The visitors took the lead in the 11th minute when midfielder Dean Cummings let fly from 12 yards and the ball nestled into the bottom corner. Ayr equalised in the 33rd minute when a powerful drive from midfielder Andrew Geggan beat goalkeeper Andrew McNeil. Edward Malone gave the Honest Men the lead after 53 minutes, the defender with a neat finish from six yards following Christopher Smith's knock-down. And the points were secured for the home side three minutes later when Geggan grabbed his second of the game, meeting Adam Dodd's cross to head the ball beyond McNeil and high into the net.
