Match Preview

Sons wait on McShane Dumbarton are hoping star striker Jon McShane will be fit to face second-placed Ayr. McShane returned to training on Thursday following a foot injury and should be included in the squad if he suffers no adverse reaction. Craig McLeish has been ruled out but Ryan McStay and Andy Geggan are both expected to shake off knocks to be involved. Alan Adamson's side are still not out of things in terms of the relegation play-offs with the Strathclyde Homes Stadium manager saying: "A win almost gets us over the finishing line and that is my target from this game. "It is good that we are facing a side that have still got something to play for themselves as the players will know that they need to perform from the first minute." Ayr are without on-loan Partick Thistle winger Stuart Bannigan for the trip. Bannigan is suspended following his dismissal against Livingston in midweek, while Bobby Donnelly and Dean Keenan are both ruled out as well. Somerset Park boss Brian Reid wants a win for two reasons He said: "The last time we were there we lost 3-2 so I am keen to put that right, and also three points makes us almost certain of a play-off place. "I want us to win all our games between now and the end of the season as I believe getting some momentum behind you is crucial if you qualify for the play-offs. "We were better in midweek at Livingston when we got beaten than when we drew last Saturday and I want that improved level of performance at Dumbarton."

Match Report

Trouten inspires play-off bound Ayr Alan Trouten netted his fifth league goal of the season as Ayr secured their Division Two play-off place with a 2-1 win at Dumbarton. The former Clyde and Airdrie midfielder latched onto Michael Moffat's pass before calmly firing the ball into the bottom corner from 12 yards to give his side the lead after just 10 minutes. The Honest Men then doubled the advantage just six minutes later when Trouten turned provider, whipping the ball in from the right for Moffat to fire into the bottom corner from close range. Ebbie Malone turned Derek Carcary's cross into his own net in the 63rd minute as Dumbarton pulled a goal back but the visitors held on for all three points.
