Match Preview

Warriors face defensive troubles Stenhousemuir will be without three central defenders for their clash with Ayr as second-bottom meets second-top in the Second Division. Gary Thom is missing through suspension while Jordan Smith and Scott Gibb are sidelined with injury, and manager David Irons is hoping Scott Fusco can pass a late fitness test to fill one of the vacant positions. Striker Scott Dalziel looks set to return after being given the all-clear to play. And despite the gap in the league table, boss Irons is positive about his side's chances. He said: "We beat Ayr here not that long again and there is no reason why we should not do so again. "Having the three defenders missing is certainly not ideal but we will just have to get on with things. Having Scott Dalziel available up front is a real boost as he was man of the match when we defeated Ayr a few weeks ago." Ayr manager Brian Reid has a number of selection concerns as his side travel to Stenhousemuir looking to avenge a 3-1 defeat at the beginning of the month. Defender Eddie Malone starts a two-game ban while on-loan Dunfermline winger Paul Willis is out with a back problem, joining Dean Keenan on the sidelines. Willie Easton and Mark Roberts both face fitness tests and Bobby Donnelly could be forced into action for the first time since joining in the summer as Reid faces a shortage of bodies. Reid said: "That defeat (three-and-a-half weeks ago) is fresh enough in our minds for us to realise that this will be a tough game. "It was disappointing to lose to Forfar in midweek but we have the chance to bounce back quickly."

Match Report

Devlin grabs late winner Mike Devlin scored an injury-time winner against Ayr United to give Stenhousemuir a 2-1 victory and three precious points in their relegation fight. Simon Lynch gave the home side the lead after just three minutes when he connected with Stephen Murray`s cross from the right. Ayr then dominated a first half in which they could not find an equaliser, Alan Trouten coming the closest with a 12-yard effort that rattled the post. After the break, Andy Rodgers should have levelled when he found space to shoot inside the penalty area, however, he curled the ball the wrong side of the upright. Ryan McCann also hit the post in the final 10 minutes. The Honest Men thought they`d stolen a point when Mark Roberts scored with just seconds of normal time left, but late into added time Devlin headed in an Eric Patton free-kick to snatch the points.
