Airdrie match preview

MATCH PREVIEW – Ayr United v Airdrie – Ladbrokes League One – Saturday 30th April. Kick off 3pm.


On Saturday we host the final league match of the 2015/16 season. A win will ensure a second place finish for United and only a win for Peterhead at East End Park and a win for Airdrie at Somerset Park will mean Peterhead finish second.

On the final day of last season we headed to Forfar needing to win to avoid the relegation play off so the turn around in fortunes has been significant.

Last week saw Ayr win 4-0 away to Peterhead with goals from Ross McCrorie, Jordan Preston and a double from Young Player of the Year Craig Moore.

Team News – Peter Murphy misses out through suspension. Brian Gilmour, Ryan Stevenson and Alan Trouten are all back in the squad.

Ian Says :”It’s all about keeping the momentum going. Back to back four nil wins have the squad really buzzing and we had a great training session last night. Everyone is working really hard. We have plenty of options of what to do with the team on Saturday, several players are coming back from injury and we might decide to rest a couple of players and if we do that it certainly wont weaken the team when you see the players available.”

Peterhead 0 Ayr Utd 4

Peterhead 0 v 4 Ayr United

Ayr recorded back to back 4-0 away victories by thrashing 10 man Peterhead at Balmoor.  Goals from Ross McCrorie, Jordan Preston and double from Craig Moore were enough to earn Ayr 3 points and move above Peterhead to 2nd place in the league.

Iain McCall returned to the touchline following his recent illness and made one change from last week’s line-up with Ross McCrorie coming in for Alan Forrest.

Ayr got off to a bad start and after only 8 mins conceded a penalty.  Andy Graham failed to control a loose ball midway in the Ayr half allowing Jordan Brown to break into the box, he was tackled by Nicky Devlin who seemed to get a toe on the ball but the referee pointed to the spot.

Rory McAllister stepped up to take the penalty but his shot bounced back off the left hand post and Brown failed to convert the rebound with Ayr throwing bodies in front of the ball to prevent a goal.

2 mins later and McAllister was sent off for a moment of madness off the ball.  McAllister raised his elbow catching Peter Murphy on the face and was sent off for his troubles.

On 16 mins (and one man down) it was the home side that nearly took the lead.   Shane Sutherland managed to turn Murphy and his strike from 25 yards looked as if it would loop into the net but was deflected just wide of Ayr’s goal.

However, it wasn’t long before Ayr made the most of their numerical advantage and took the lead. On 24 mins Craig Moore collected the ball and drove into the Peterhead half, his pass to Preston seemed to be too heavy but Preston managed to outpace 2 players before sending through to McCrorie in the box.  McCrorie’s cutback was met by Moore who coolly finished from close range.  A clinical attack and Ayr were 1-0 up.

Ayr almost doubled their advantage 5 minutes later when keeper Graeme Smith failed to clear a corner and the ball fell to Moore but he failed to divert his shot into the net from close range

Continuous pressure from United proved too much for the home side and Ayr made it 2 right on half time.  Ross Docherty whipped in a dangerous corner and Smith couldn’t get a proper hand on the ball which fell to McCrorie who outmuscled Sutherland to fire the ball into the net.

5 mins into the second half and the home side almost found a way back into the game through Shane Sutherland whose header from a corner was cleared off the line by Ross Docherty.

With 53 mins on the clock Ayr made it 3-0.  A long ball by Peter Murphy was met by Donald on the left and he drove down the wing before cutting the ball across to Crawford. Crawford laid the ball off to Preston and he fired into the bottom corner from the edge of the area to increase Ayr’s lead.

3 mins later and Jamie Redman almost pulled a goal back for the home side.  Under pressure, keeper Fleming struggled to hold onto the ball as it swung in from a corner but from 6 yards out Redman couldn’t direct his shot goalwards.

McCrorie almost doubled his goal tally for the game after 61 minutes however he fired over from inside the box.

Ayr then added a fourth as Moore got his second of the game after 81 mins.  Forrest collected the ball midway in the Peterhead half and his pass sent Preston through into the box.  Preston’s layoff ball found his strike partner Moore who gave Smith no chance firing high into the net from close range topping off a successful day for the Honest Men.

Ayr now welcome play off chasing Airdrie to Somerset next week as United aim to secure 2nd place in the league.

Peterhead match preview

Match Preview Peterhead vs. Ayr United Ladbrokes League 1 Saturday 23rd April 2016. Kick-off 3pm

On Saturday, Ayr United travel north to face Peterhead for what could be a decisive match in the race for second place. A win for the Blue Toon will secure them that accolade and home advantage in the second-leg of the the up coming play-off semi-final between the sides. A draw or United win and it will go to the final week of the season which sees Ayr host Airdrieonians and Peterhead travel to Dunfermline on the day they will receive the League 1 trophy.

Petrofact Cup finalists Peterhead were defeated 4-0 by Rangers at Hampden a fortnight ago and then defeated 5-1 at Brechin City last weekend, a match which saw them concede four first-half goals.

The Blue Toon have already secured their highest league finish since joining the SFL in 2000. They have lost just two league matches at home this season – including last time out versus Cowdenbeath. That result and a subsequent defeat at Forfar before the Challenge Cup final mean Jim McInally’s side have lost four-in-a-row.

Team News: Jamie Adams, Brian Gilmour, Ryan Stevenson and Alan Trouten are all out but expected to be close to a return for next Saturday.

Ian says: “We are looking at it as a big game, a win puts us second and would ensure that a win at home next Saturday will mean the runners up spot. We see that as a big motivation and will play our strongest available team. I don’t think that whatever happens in this game will give either team a psychological advantage in the playoffs however we just want to finish the season in second place.”

Head-to-Head: Ayr United wins – 8 Draws – 9 Peterhead wins – 13

Ayr are without a win in the last eight meetings between the sides.

Six of United’s eight wins against Peterhead have come away from home.

Last meeting: Shane Sutherland and Craig Moore traded early goals when the sides last met at the start of February. Rory McAllister’s 41st minute strike was enough to earn the Blue Toon all three points at Somerset Park. Scott Ross was sent off late on for the visitors.

Ayr’s last trip to Balmoor ended in a 3-0 defeat, all three goals coming after the hour mark.

On this date: in 2011, Ayr defeated Dumbarton 2-1 away from home. Goals from Alan Trouten and Michael Moffat gave the Honest Men a two goal advantage after just 16 minutes; a second-half Eddie Malone own goal turned out to be just a consolation for the Sons of the Rock, who featured Nicky Devlin at right-back.

Saturday will be United’s 500th game to be played in the month of April.
