Ayr United vs. Raith Rovers Match Preview

SPFL Championship

Saturday 20th March 2021. Kick-off 3pm

On Saturday, David Hopkin takes charge of his first match in charge of Ayr United at Somerset Park. Hoppy makes his home debut against Raith Rovers on the back of an important win at Dundee on Tuesday night, which lifted the Honest Men up into seventh place.

After three consecutive home defeats, United picked up seven points from a possible 12 on the road, losing only to league leaders Hearts at Tynecastle. With just six points separating 4th and 9th place in the table, it is another hugely important match as the Championship hurtles towards its climax.

Opposition

Rovers head to Ayrshire without a win in their last three matches. On Tuesday night, they were defeated 1-0 by Inverness Caledonian Thistle at Starks Park. Veteran defender Iain Davidson was sent-off after just 11 minutes, with Caley grabbing what proved to be the winner 10 minutes into the second-half.

Despite a poor run of form, John McGlynn’s side remain in third place, just a point behind rivals Dunfermline.

Team News

Andre Wright misses out through injury however we are hopeful he will be taking part in within a week. 

The Manager Says:

I am really looking forward to my first game as manager at Somerset. It has been a whirlwind first week and crazy to think this will be the third game in such a short space of time. That being said we were delighted with the boys on Tuesday night and we feel that they have taken on a lot of what they have been given in a short space of time. They are in great spirits and we all know just how different the League table would look if we get 3 points tomorrow.

Head to Head

Ayr United wins: 35

Draws: 24

Raith Rovers wins: 18

 

United are unbeaten in the last five meetings between the sides and six of the last seven at Somerset Park.

Last Meeting:

There is yet to be a goal in the two meetings between the sites this season. It was an entertaining but ultimately goalless draw at Starks Park just 10 days ago, when David White was in temporary charge of the Honest Men, and the same scoreline at Somerset Park in December.
