Dunfermline v Ayr United

The Pars have won nine of the last ten league meetings and it is 16 league games back since Ayr United won. Ayr have only won 3 of the last 28 games between the sides in all competitions stretching back to 1983. The Honest Men`s most recent victory against the Fifers was a 3-0 Scottish Cup win at Somerset Park in January 2002. James Grady, John Robertson and a spectacular own goal from Gus McPherson saw Ayr on their way passed Jimmy Calderwood`s side to a Quarter Final tie with Dundee United.
