Dunfermline Athletic

Preview Ayr United

Saturday, 7th Jan 2017

Ladbrokes Championship: Ayr United have only won 6 of the last 52 games between the sides in all competitions stretching back to 1983. 

Another important match on Saturday, the second in succession on the road. The trip to Kirkcaldy is followed by a run down to Ayr. Somerset Park has proven to be a happy hunting ground for the Fifers since it is eleven visits back since Ayr United came out on top. The Pars record versus the Honest Men shows one defeat in the last 18 meetings and despite Ayr winning only one of their last eleven matches the bookies can barely separate the sides in the pre match betting.
