Match Preview

SUBBED County duo sidelined Ross County defender Marc Fitzpatrick remains out with a knee injury when Ayr visit. He is joined on the sidelines by Stuart Kettlewell, who has a groin problem. Manager Derek Adams will make changes to his side after the midweek Scottish Cup defeat to St Mirren. He said: "We freshened things up for that game with six changes and I will keep things fresh for this one by mixing things up again. "I would expect Ayr to come and keep things really tight and I have no issues with that. It is up to our players to try and break them down. "They did well to defeat a good Falkirk side in midweek so I do not view this as a top versus bottom type encounter." Ayr head north with their midweek Scottish Cup win against Falkirk coming at a price as manager Brian Reid has been left with only 14 senior players to choose from. Sean Higgins and John Robertson miss out again and they have been joined on the sidelines by defender Martyn Campbell, who has a hip injury, and midfielder Alan Trouten after he picked up a hamstring problem. Reid said: "Wednesday night was great and if I could bottle up our second-half performance and use it against Ross County it would be great. "The 14 players includes two kids on loan from Blackpool, we have had a day's less recovery time than County have had but we need to just get on with it."

Match Report

Staggies suffer setback Ross County's march to the Scottish First Division title was halted further by a 1-1 draw against a spirited Ayr side. The match looked to be going according to plan as league leaders County took the lead in the seventh minute - Grant Munro punting Scott Boyd's headed pass into the corner. But bottom club Ayr are unbeaten in three league matches and Mark Roberts soon stung the palms of Michael Fraser with a long-range drive. County were still dominating however, with only a stunning Kevin Cuthbert save denying Michael Gardyne's left-footed drive from finding the top corner. Their wastefulness was punished as Liam Tomsett unleashed an unstoppable 30-yard piledriver past Fraser for Ayr's equaliser. Jonathan Tiffoney's red card set up a frantic finale but the Staggies were left frustrated for a third league match running.
