Albion match preview

Match Preview
Ayr United vs. Albion Rovers
Ladbrokes League 1
Saturday 9th April 2016. Kick-off 3pm

On Saturday, Ayr United return to action at Somerset Park with Albion Rovers the visitors. With second-placed Peterhead not in action this weekend, United have the opportunity to close the gap on the Blue Toon to just one point in the search for home advantage in the second-leg of the upcoming promotion play-off semi-final between the two sides.

The Honest Men’s defeat to Cowdenbeath last Saturday was their fourth in five matches away from home – but at home Ian McCall’s men have won four of their last five. United have gone 20 games since last drawing a match.
Albion Rovers require just three points to confirm their League 1 safety – but are without a win in their last eight games. Last weekend, they were narrowly edged out by Champions Dunfermline at Cliftonhill, Faissal El-Bakhtaoui scoring with just three minutes on the clock.

If Darren Young’s side can return to winning ways a place in the promotion play-offs is still in reach – the Coatbridge side are six points behind fourth placed Stranraer who, like Peterhead, are not in action this weekend.

Team News: Jamie Adams, Paddy Boyle and Brian Gilmour all miss out however none of the trio are far away from a return.

Ian says: “Quite simply last week against Cowdenbeath wasn’t good enough. It certainly isn’t the type of display we expect from the group of players that we have and today we will be looking to put that right. Albion have had a great season to date after promotion and they have 4th place in their sights so have everything to play for. We need to make sure and start the game well and make sure we are finishing well as we will always create chances at Somerset.”

Ayr United wins – 49
Draws – 12
Albion Rovers wins – 30

In 48 visits to Somerset Park, Albion Rovers have recorded 9 wins and have lost on their last 4 trips to the Ayrshire coast.

Last meeting: three first half goals, two from Jordan Preston and a ‘Stevo special’, saw United earn all three points when the sides last met – at Cliftonhill in January. Ally Love netted a late consolation. The result avenged United’s 3-0 defeat in Coatbridge on the opening day of the season.

The ‘Vers last match at Somerset was in November when Alan Trouten scored the only goal of the game.
On this date: in 2011 Ayr United faced Forfar Athletic at Somerset Park and raced to a two-goal lead in the first 14 minutes after goals from Stuart Bannigan and Mark Roberts. Michael Bolochowechyj scored for the visitors with 15 minutes to go but Bannigan’s second goal seven minutes later secured the victory.

Cowdenbeath 1 Ayr Utd 0

Ayr failed to make it back to back wins as they fell to a 1-0 defeat against Cowdenbeath at Central Park. An early second half own goal from Sean McKenzie was enough to earn the “Blue Brazil” the precious 3 points as the Honest Men struggled to perform.

Iain McCall made 3 changes to the starting line up from last week with Captain Nicky Devlin returning alongside Ross Docherty and Ross McCrorie replacing McLauchlan, Adams and Moore.

The game started off quickly for the home side and after only 2 minutes they had their first chance of the game. Declan McDaid drove into midfield and was given space and time to take a shot, however his strike was tipped wide by Greg Fleming. A minute later and Cowdenbeath were threatening again as Ayr failed to clear their lines allowing Dean Brett a shot at goal. However it fizzed past the post from 15 yards out.

Cowdenbeath dominated the opening stages of the game and after 5 minutes Greig Spence had a great chance as he was set free into the box and his shot from a tight angle was blocked by the impressive Fleming who was doing well to keep the home side out.

Ayr created their first chance of the game after 10 minutes. A long throw in by Mikey Donald evaded everyone in the Cowdenbeath box before it landed to Mick Wardrope but he couldn’t connect properly with the ball and his shot went well over from 10 yards.

Cowdenbeath were again causing Ayr problems and after 21 minutes created their best chance of the game so far. Cowdenbeath made a breakaway from an Ayr attack and Lewis Milne drove down the right hand side, crossed into Spence but he could only direct his header onto the bar from close range. 3 minutes later and the home side found themselves on a 3 on 1 counter however McDaid’s strike was blocked by Fleming.

2 minute before halftime and Ayr had their best chance of the game through Jordan Preston. Mikey Donald swung in a cross from the left hand-side and keeper Grant Adam failed to collect it as it fell to Preston however he couldn’t get enough on his strike and it was easily saved by Adam from 7 yards out. Both teams went into halftime on level terms as McCall looked to get more from his side in the second half.

The home side again started the half the quicker of the two teams and had their next chance after 50 minutes. Milne drove into the Ayr box and his cutback was met by Spence however his strike was again well saved by Fleming in the Ayr goal.

After 55 minutes the home side finally managed to break the deadlock through a touch of good fortune. McDaid swung in a corner from the right and it was met by Ayr’s substitute Sean McKenzie who attempted to head the ball away however he could only find the back of the net as his header flew past Fleming in his own goal.

Ayr picked up the tempo after this setback and created a great chance on 73 minutes. Nicky Devlin attacked down the right and his low cross was met by Docherty however his first time shot was straight at Adam as frustration crept into both the players and fans.

Ross McCrorie was next to try his luck after 80 minutes. The midfielder was set through on goal by Docherty and his ferocious strike from 15 yards smashed off the inside of the post and Trouten fired over the rebound from close range.

Ross Docherty also hit the woodwork after 87 minutes as his ambitious shot from 30 yards out crashed off the bar. 2 minutes later and Graham’s header from a corner was inches wide as Ayr failed to find the equaliser.

Ayr now welcome Albion Rovers to Somerset next week as they aim to bounce back.
