Inverness | Match Preview | 09/04/22

With just four games left, Ayr United welcome Inverness this afternoon. United are searching for a valuable three points in the bid to secure their Championship status whilst the away side are looking to clinch their promotion play off place. The pressure is on for Ayr after a Dunfermline win midweek moved them to within two points of 8th placed United with the two facing off against each other next weekend.

Last Friday night, a 94th minute Kerr McInroy wonder goal grabbed a draw for United against Hamilton Accies. After Andy Winter’s 7th minute opener for Accies, United struggled to get back level but McInroy thundered home a sensational half volley to secure a point and a claim for goal of the season.

Three points this afternoon would set Lee Bullen’s men up nicely for a crucial double header away to both Dunfermline and Queen of the South.

Opposition

Following a torrid start to 2022, Inverness have suffered just one defeat in their last five games and have won all of their last three. Caley Thistle were without a game last weekend but their previous outing was a 2-0 home win against Dunfermline. Second half strikes from Reece McAlear and Austin Samuels earned Inverness a vital win. Caley Thistle haven’t been short of goals and have scored 43 goals this season with Billy McKay the clubs top goal scorer this campaign.

Team News

Ben Dempsey and Blaine Rowe are both out. Sam Ashford returns from suspension.

The Manager Says:

“We need to stop going a goal behind but the players showed great resilience to come back again on Friday night. This weekend is a tough test against the form team in the league but we have to be ready for it in what is an important game.”

Head to Head

Ayr United Wins – 7
Draws - 13
Hamilton Wins – 17

The two teams have matched up 15 times since Ayr won promotion back to the Championship in 2018. United have only won two of the 15 with their last home victory coming in January 2020. A strike from promising youngster Stephen Kelly earned Ayr a 1-0 victory. Ayr’s other victory came just under two months ago with a 2-1 win in the Highlands.

Last Meeting: Ayr ended their Highland hoodoo back in February with a 2-1 victory. Goals from Sean McGinty and Tomi Adeloye gave Ayr a two goal advantage. David Carson was then sent off for the hosts before Lewis Nicolson scored a freak goal to give the travelling fans a nervous last few minutes. 

Ayr Lined Up: McAdams, Houston (Rowe 62'), Muirhead, McGinty, Reading, McKenzie (Gondoh 89'), Murdoch, McInroy, Maxwell (O'Connor 89'), Dempsey (Smithat 89'), Ashford (Adeloye 62').
