Ayr Utd 1 Peterhead 1

Ayr United 1 – 1 Peterhead

Following back to back away victories against Dunfermline and Airdrie, League One table toppers Ayr United welcomed Peterhead to Somerset Park hoping to continue their recent form. Ian McCall made two changed to the side that overcame Airdrie as Robbie Crawford and Alan Trouten were restored to the starting line up in place of Alan Forrest and the injured, Jamie Adams. Peterhead came into the game on the back of a defeat away to league strugglers, Brechin City and were be looking to bounce back against United.

Chances were few and far between in the opening exchanges as both teams struggled to create clear cut opportunities. The first effort in anger came from Ayr United’s Jordan Preston as he fired an effort over the bar following Craig Moore’s clever knock down.

Ayr then had skipper Nicky Devlin to thank for the scores remaining level as he brilliantly blocked Nicky Riley’s effort just as it looked like the visitors would take the lead.
The last chance of the half fell to Peterhead’s talisman, McAllister. The striker got on the end of a long ball in the box before delicately flicking the ball over the head of the Peter Murphy. However, the striker would be disappointed to watch his attempted lob drop wide of the target, when he should have given his side the advantage.

A fairly dull first half ended goalless and both teams were looking to up the ante in the second half. With 54 minutes gone, it was Ayr who took the lead. Graeme Smith superbly tipped a Craig Moore volley over the bar but from the resultant corner Devlin ran into space and headed in from around 8 yards.

Ayr then took the upper hand and had a strong shout for penalty. Pacey striker, Preston drove into the box before unleashing a shot that appeared to the masses to be blocked by a hand but referee Stephen Finnie dismiss the appeals and pointed for a corner.
The Blue Toon then had a goal chopped off for offside as Leighton McIntosh thought he had equalised – only to see the assistant’s flag raised – a controversial call from the far side official. The away side then started to take the ascendency and only a point black save from Greg Fleming denied them a leveller.

With just four minutes remaining, Peterhead got their just rewards as Jamie Redman rose highest to power home a header. A crushing blow for United, who were within touching distance of a valuable three points.

And 1-1 it finished with both teams feeling that they could have performed better but in the end a draw fitted the pattern of the game as chances were few and far between. Ayr remain at the top of league ahead of the visit of Cowdenbeath, next Saturday afternoon.

Peterhead match preview

Match Preview
Ayr United vs. Peterhead
Ladbrokes League 1 – Saturday 26th September 2015

On Saturday, Ian McCall’s top-of-the-table troops take on Peterhead at Somerset Park, with the gaffer looking for a bumper crowd to cheer on the Honest Men. United have won their last three games and are unbeaten in seven League 1 games.

Peterhead are without a win in their last four matches and on Saturday were beaten 3-2 at home to Brechin City, the Hedgemen’s first win of the season. The result leaves the Blue Toon in seventh position with nine points.

Rory McAllister found the net for the 12th time this season at the weekend against his former club and was joined on the scoresheet by Shane Sutherland, a summer signing from Elgin City. Making his debut for Peterhead against Brechin was former Dundee,Portsmouth, Swindon and Celtic midfielder Simon Ferry.

Team News: Everyone is fit and available.

Ian says: “This will be a completely different type of game to the last two we have faced. Against Dunfermline and Airdrie, Dunfermline especially, we would have been the underdog so now we are back at Somerset and on a good run we will be the favourites to win. Its a different type of pressure for us however we are on a very good run which even stretches back to the end of last season and everyone wants us to keep that going. We are at home and we will be looking for the 3 points that keeps us top of the league.”

Head-to-Head (at Somerset Park):
Ayr United wins – 2
Draws – 6
Peterhead wins – 6

United scored seven goals against Peterhead last season – but picked up just one point against Jim McInally’s side. Included in that tally is a 3-2 defeat at Somerset Park later declared void after the visitors fielded Reece Donaldson when the defender was suspended. Including that game, the Blue Toon are unbeaten on their last six trips to Ayrshire.

Last Meeting: Ayr raced to a two-goal lead thanks to goals from Alan Forrest and Jordan Preston when the sides met at Somerset Park in April – but Peterhead ended up 4-2 winners. Andy Rodgers, a double from Jordan Brown and Gary McDonald netting for the Blue Toon.

On this day: in 2009 the Honest Men beat Raith Rovers 1-0 at Somerset Park courtesy of a goal from Kenny Connolly.

Referee – Stephen Finnie
Assistant Referee – Ralph Gordon
Assistant Referee – Colin McDonald

Match Details:
Entry is £15 for adults, £8 for concessions and £18 for parent and child.

Airdrie 1 Ayr Utd 2

Airdrieonians 1 v 2 Ayr United
Following a 2-0 win away to Dunfermline last weekend, Ayr United were once again on their travels as they made the journey to the Excelsior Stadium to face Airdrie. The Honest Men had a clean bill of health ahead of the game with gaffer, Ian McCall going with the same team that performed so well in victory against the Pars. This had the potential to be an exciting game as both teams have been in good form of late with Airdrie winning their previous four games whilst Ayr remain unbeaten after an opening day loss to Albion Rovers.

Airdrie made a blistering start and after just 55 seconds had their first effort of the game. David Cox gathered the ball just outside the area but he fired his effort wide of the target. Cox then popped up again releasing a shot from the edge of the box two minutes later. However, this time his strike was blocked by Paddy Boyle and deflect for a corner. The home side took full advantage of the resulting corner as Liam Watt played a quick one two with striker, Taylor Morgan before curling a sweet effort past Greg Fleming, to give his side the lead after just four minutes.

Watt was proving a real danger to Ayr and his quick feet on the edge of the box allowed him to dance through three Ayr United players before Morgan volleyed the loose ball wide.
United then started to come back into the game with Jordan Preston trying his luck after some neat control which gained him a yard of space. The young striker turned and looped a volley goal wards but it was straight into the hands of keeper Neil Parry. Jamie Adams then tried his luck as he burst into the box but he was off balance and his shot was wayward.

Airdrie could have made it two just minutes before half time as Cox’s initial effort was parried by Fleming. The ball landed back at the feet of the Airdrie man but his second attempt was crucially blocked by Gerry McLauchlan.

On the stroke of halftime, Ayr equalised out of nowhere. A long ball was won in the air by Moore before Preston returned the ball to his strike partner. The on loan Motherwell front man drove a shot from the edge of the box high into the roof of the net to pull Ayr United level going into half time.

Michael Donald replaced Jamie Adams at the break and Brian Gilmour stepped into the centre of midfield. The visitors made a better start to the second half with Gilmour having a bigger influence in the game. The first of a number of opportunities came to Gilmour early on but, although keeper Neil Parry failed to get down to the ball quickly enough, his shot from the edge of the box went narrowly wide.

However, Airdrie should have made it 2-0 as Marc Fitzpatrick found himself with a yard of space inside the box but he sent his volley high over the bar when he really should have done better.

The game then started to heat up as Peter Murphy and Taylor Morgan were involved in a tussle after an off the ball incident that left Ross Docherty on the ground. All three officials were on the field as they tried to keep the situation from boiling over.

As tempers threated to flare, Ayr United took the lead with 66 minutes on the clock. Gilmour picked the ball up in midfield and from 25 yards sent a low bouncing shot under the despairing hands of Parry and into the bottom corner of the net to send the Ayr United fans into raptures. Airdrie will feel goal keeper, Parry should have done better but Ayr were in the driving seat with 24 minutes left to play.

In 79 mins there was a sour moment in the match as Airdrie front man Taylor Morgan was stretched off the field off play after suffering a neck injury but was later discharged from hospital as the injury was not as bad as was at first feared.
Moore then had a good chance to kill the game off as he got on the end of a Donald ball into the box but his effort flew high over the bar.

Alan Trouten was introduce to replace the hardworking but tiring Forrest and had an immediate effect on the game. The substitute brilliant skipped past a number of Airdrie defenders before slipping the ball wide to Ross Caldwell who had come on for Preston just minutes before. As Ayr sought to kill the game off Caldwell’s cross failed to beat the first defender where perhaps the return pass to Trouten was a better option.

After eleven minutes of injury time the referee sounded the final whistle to confirm the victory for Ayr United. This was a hard fought contest from which Airdrie will feel they should have taken something but United’s grit, determination and killer instinct was enough to take all three points and saw them move to the top of the table after seven games.

Airdrieonians vs. Ayr United
Ladbrokes League 1 – Saturday 19th September 2015

The Honest Men are on the road again this weekend as they travel to Lanarkshire to face League 1’s other form side, Airdrieonians. United stretched their unbeaten run in the league to five games with a fine 2-0 win over Dunfermline Athletic at East End Park and leap-frogged the Pars to join Forfar at the top of the table.

Airdrie enjoyed derby day success last time out, beating Albion Rovers 3-1 at Cliftonhill. The victory was the Diamonds’ fourth in-a-row in the league and sees Gary Bollan’s side sit fourth in the table, just a point behind the joint leaders.

Paddy Boyle and Ross Docherty were among the departures from the Excelsior Stadium in the summer as they swapped Airdrie for Ayr. New faces include former Ayr defender Alan Lithgow, Sean Crighton, who earned a league winners medal with Morton last season and forward David Cox, previously with Peterhead.

Team News: The squad is fully fit and everyone is available.

Ian says: “We have worked hard from last week as there is no point going to Dunfermline and winning if we don’t back it up with a good result. Obviously last week was a great result however there are still areas I feel we can improve and we have been working on that. Airdrie have won four games in a row which shows they are a good side and these games always have a wee edge to them. I am sure we will have a good backing as usual from the stands and we are going there looking to win the game.”

Head-to-Head (at the Excelsior Stadium):
Ayr United wins – 5
Draws – 4
Airdrieonians wins – 4

Airdrieonians have won the last five matches and Ayr have failed to score in the last three meetings between the sides.

United have been shown nine red cards in the last nine games against Airdrie.

Last Meeting: Bob McHugh scored a second-half double earned the Diamonds all three points when Ayr last travelled to the Excelsior, in April.

On this day: in 1998, Ayr thumped Stranraer 7-1 at Somerset Park. Gavin Friels opened the scoring for the visitors in the eighth minute but three goals in six minutes from Andy Walker, Glynn Hurst and Ian Ferguson put the Honest Men ahead at half-time. Fergie went on to complete a hat-trick in the second-half and John Robertson and another Andy Walker goal rounded off the scoring.

Dunfermline 0 Ayr Utd 2

Dunfermline Athletic 0 v 2 Ayr United

An away-day trip to Dunfermline has not been a very fruitful one over the last few years and with ‘The Pars’ top of the table and scoring for fun this was always going to be a tough one for United. Many fans made the trip East feeling that a draw would be an excellent result and show how far United had improved under Ian McCall’s stewardship. McCall and his squad had higher aspirations and a belief that they could do even better.

Ayr took the game to Dunfermline from the start and in the opening 10 minutes a shot from Alan Forrest and a header from Craig Moore had both ended up on the side netting with the Pars struggling to come to terms with United’s attacking threesome of Forrest, Moore and Jordan Preston.

Unlike their previous matches where the Pars imposed themselves early on with fast paced attacking football regularly leading to a goal, it took them some time to come into the match and in the opening stages the movement forward was relatively ineffective and easily dealt with by the United back four.

Just as Dunfermline started to up the pace it was United who again created an excellent chance. In 14 mins Ayr broke down a Dunfermline attack and moved forward at speed, Preston spreading the ball across the park to Gilmour who deftly laid the ball off to Boyle on the left but his tantalising cross was cleared as the United forwards attempted to capitalise.

There followed a short period of Dunfermline pressure with, first, prolific goal scorer Joe Cardle lining up a shot which, luckily for Ayr, was deflected into goalkeeper Greg Fleming’s hands. Second, Fleming pulled off the first of a number excellent saves when former United striker Michael Moffat went one-on-one with him in the box.

It was, however, Ayr who took the lead. In the 22min Forrest picked up the ball deep in the United half and pushed forward into Dunfermline territory before sliding the ball through to Moore whose audacious back heel return allowed Forrest to make his way into the penalty area. With a coolness belying his age he turned to his right and the usually dominant Ben Richards-Everton slid past him opening up a clear space for the youngster to confidently pick his spot and stroke the ball into the net.

In the 27th min there came an incident which was to set the tone for the rest of the match. Ayr players and fans had become continually frustrated by repeated jersey pulling and physical handling of players being ignored by referee Kevin Graham and this boiled over. Ayr attacked down the right and Forrest played the ball forward to Preston who held the ball up well and looked for Devlin who was making an overlapping run. Dunfermline’s Cardle failed to keep up with Devlin so deftly tugged his jersey before delicately flicking the Ayr skipper’s ankles sending him to the deck. The referee failed to act and Preston was forced to turn inside and the ball was lost. Dunfermline darted to the halfway line attempting to exploit the space left by Devlin. The aggrieved Devlin charged back towards the halfway line before diving in on a challenge on Dunfermline midfielder Josh Falkingham.

The Dunfermline faithful bayed for blood demanding a red card but referee Graham issued yellow.

Shortly afterwards Jamie Adams was booked for an unnecessary barge shortly after being involved in a collision with Dunfermline captain Callum Fordyce and was deservedly booked.

In 42 mins Dunfermline should have pulled level with Moffat racing through on goal before laying the ball off to Cardle in the penalty box leaving the diminutive wide-man with only the keeper to beat. Yet again Fleming in the United goal pulled off a wonderful save only to see the ball drop at the feet of Moffat who inexplicably failed to take advantage of the situation and the ball was cleared.

One minute later, there was a most unfortunate incident which resulted in Dunfermline’s captain Callum Fordyce being stretchered off with a suspected broken leg. Fordyce drove forward into the United half and was fairly slide tackled by Craig Moore who retrieved the ball but the Dunfermline man twisted and landed awkwardly as he fell, his lower leg bending sickeningly. Fordyce was replaced by recent signing from Queens Park Shaun Rooney.

The second half started at pace with the Pars determined to bring themselves level. Manager Allan Johnston continued to show his attacking philosophy with at times up to 7 men leading attacks into the final third but they were resisted by a strong and well organised United back four with the redoubtable Gerry McLauchlan and Peter Murphy in sterling form.

Dunfermline attempted to add an extra bite to the forward line by replacing Moffat with experienced striker Mickael Antoine-Curier who had signed earlier in the week but before he could have any effect United struck again.

In 59 mins Murphy delivered a long high curling ball into the penalty area which Dunfermline keeper Sean Murdoch looked odds-on to collect but fumbled under pressure from Moore. Reacting first the United forward dived and headed the ball towards the goals only for it to be nodded off the line. The ball then landed in front of Preston, some 8 yards out, who with great composure smashed a first-time drive into the net and Ayr were two up.

Dunfermline reacted immediately bringing on Ryan Wallace for the hard-working Michael Paton and again launched waves of attacks.

Ayr’s Moore then received a booking but with the pressure from fans and players alike and it felt almost inevitable that he would not be the last.

In 67 minutes came the save of the match when Greg Fleming reacted instinctively to Faissal El-Bakhtaoui’s powerful downward header from close range and knocked it off the line with a strong right hand.

In 69 mins Ross Caldwell replaced the impressive Moore who had put in a hard shift and possibly to protect the man from a further card. This appeared to be an astute move as yellow cards made regular appearances in the following minutes. First Ayr’s McLauchlan went into the book for a foul from behind on Ryan Wallace. He was followed shortly afterwards by Alan Trouten (a 78th min sub for Forrest) and Dunfermline’s Cardle after they had tussled on the ground following a challenge. Cardle may count himself lucky as he appeared to strike Trouten on the face with his forearm. Antoine-Curier found himself the final booking after an unnecessary push on Murphy off the ball was spotted by the officials.

Dunfermline continued to press forward in numbers but failed to create any definite chances or were denied by passionate defending by the United team. No matter how much Dunfermline tried they did not look as if they would score as the Ayr team resisted with confidence and determination.

When the final whistle blew the United team celebrated the breaking of the long held hoodoo at East End Park with the raucous travelling support.

Dunfermline match preview and Information

UNITED boss Ian McCall has pledged his players are “raring to go” as they head for table topping Dunfermline.

The Honest Men hit the road tomorrow with a fully fit squad – and McCall is promising to go after the free scoring Fifers.

The gaffer said on Friday: “The players are really up for this and can’t wait to get out there.

“Anyone who finishes above Dunfermline will win the league, so we know this will be a huge test.

“But in all positions of the park I believe we have players who can hurt them and we’ll be going there to make a game of it.”

Ayr sparked their season to life last time out when knocking five past Stenhousemuir at Somerset Park.

United have since enjoyed an 11 day break due to last Saturday’s Scottish Airshow but face a Pars side fresh off the back of a thumping 4-0 win at Forfar.

Ayr will also have to contend with a horror recent record against Dunfermline, having lost all four games against the Fifers last season.

And stretching further back, Ayr have won only two of the previous 26 league meetings between the clubs.

But McCall’s new-look line-up will bid to put that record to bed tomorrow in the clash of the league’s free scoring sides.

Everyone in the squad is fit and available.

Information for travelling fans –

Ayr fans are in the East Stand which is the one behind the goal.

Prices are £15 for adults, £10 for concessions and £5 for under 12s.

Tomorrow’s referee: Kevin Graham
