Match Preview

Armstrong on lengthy injury list Ayr United teenager Gareth Armstrong has joined the already lengthy injury list at Somerset Park ahead of their game against leaders Ross County. The Honest Men are again without John Robertson, Martyn Campbell, Alan Trouten and Sean Higgins as they look to build on the 3-1 success they had over Livingston at the weekend that lifted them off bottom spot. Manager Brian Reid said, "We have been going well recently, and lost only one in six but it is important to turn draws into wins. We did that against Livingston and it would be great to do that against Ross County." "We did well to get a point up there a week last Saturday and my players deserve great credit for how they are battling away with a depleted squad." Ross County defender Marc Fitzpatrick is the only absentee for the Dingwall men as they travel to Ayr United looking to turn a game in hand into a three-point lead over second-placed Falkirk. County boss Derek Adams is an admirer of the way that the only part-time side in the league have gone about their business as he explained, "A win and three points is our target but achieving it will be tough as Brian Reid has his players doing a great job for him just now." "They played well in our recent meeting and bounced back from losing to Partick last Tuesday with a very good win over Livingston. They are very strong at home and we will need to play well to take anything."

Match Report

Great Brittain inspires County Richard Brittain scored hat-trick as Ross County moved clear at the top of the First Division after a thrilling 3-2 win over Ayr. Brittain opened his account in the 16th minute when he curled in a delightful 20-yard free-kick after Micheal McGowan had brought down Michael Gardyn. Michael Moffat should have levelled after 28 minutes, but his header was saved by the feet of Michael Fraser and Ayr were made to pay 10 minutes later. Adam Dodd fouled Gary Miller in the area and Brittain took his seasonal tally to seven when he despatched the resulting spot-kick into the bottom corner. Keigan Parker headed Ayr back into the game by getting on the end of Micheal McGowan's 52nd-minute cross and he levelled the game 23 minutes later by firing in from the edge of the area. But Brittain had the final say by firing in a spectacular 30-yard effort with 10 minutes remaining.
