Disciplinary problems for Forfar
Forfar will be without three key players when they look to keep their slim play-off hopes alive by defeating Ayr.
Gavin Swankie, Gary Fusco and Stuart Malcolm will all miss out through suspension, with veteran defender Marvin Andrews in line for a recall.
Ahead of the game, Station Park manager Dick Campbell said: "I will be putting out a team I believe will show the desire to get us back into the play-off chase.
"Too many players accepted for second best against Arbroath last week and that is one the reasons that we lost. The team I pick for this game will be the ones who will fight best to keep our thin chance of making the play-offs going by beating Ayr."
Kyle McAusland comes back into the reckoning for Ayr.
The on-loan Rangers youngster was ineligible against his parent club on Tuesday night .
United player/manager Mark Roberts is keen that his side build on that display at Ibrox, he said: "We played well against Rangers and deserved more than we got. However, if we can hit that performance level again I am sure we will get something from this game.
"It would be terrific to get the win and end Forfar's challenge for the play-offs. However, they will come out all guns blazing looking to take things to the last day so we have to be prepared to battle."
