Alloa match preview

Alloa Athletic vs. Ayr United

SPFL Championship

Saturday 27th March 2021. Kick-off 3pm

On Saturday, Ayr United travel to take on Alloa Athletic at the Indodrill Stadium.

 

United travel to Clackmannanshire after a professional performance in the Scottish Cup on Tuesday night. Four first-half goals put Elgin City to the sword and David Hopkin will be hoping his side can continue that form into the Championship, with the Honest Men five points off second place but just three points clear of the relegation play-off position.

Opposition

Alloa sit bottom of the Championship table, five points behind ninth-placed Arbroath and know that a win on Saturday will be vital if they are to avoid relegation to League 1 with only five games remaining after this weekend.

The Wasps have just two wins since Boxing Day, both of which against Queen of the South. Peter Grant’s side picked up three points at Palmerston Park a fortnight ago but followed that up with a 3-0 defeat at home to Dundee last Friday night. Despite their travails, the defeat was the first time Alloa has failed to score in a game since their 2-0 loss at Somerset Park in December.

Team News

Andre Wright will miss out although his rehab has been stepping up and he should take part in training next week. Aaron Muirhead returns to the squad after sitting out with suspension at Elgin. 

The Manager Says:

It will be a tough game, Alloa are at the bottom of the league but they are a good side. Our boys have showed an excellent level of commitment and desire over the last week or so and we need to keep that up. It is hugely important to win the personal battles all over the pitch. We were really pleased with how we put the game to bed on Tuesday night, and scored some really good goals.

Head to Head

Ayr United wins: 66

Draws: 27

Alloa Athletic wins: 31

United have won eight of the last nine matches between the sides, with the other game ending in a draw.

Last Meeting:

Two goals in either half for the Honest Men handed United a 4-1 win over Alloa when the sides met at Somerset Park at the end of January. Tom Walsh opened the scoring for the Honest Men in the 6th minute but Ayr were caught unawares when Alan Trouten scored a long range free-kick five minutes later. Luke McCowan made sure United went into the break ahead, and scored again in the second-half as did Aaron Muirhead from the penalty spot.
