Preview Ayr United

Wednesday, 19th Feb 2014

This will be the fifth of what will be six and possibly eight games between the teams this season.

Ryan Thomson v Ayr United

Saturday's visitors to East End Park are Ayr United and this will be the fifth of what will be six and possibly eight games between the teams this season. The Somerset Park side are fellow contenders for a play off place since they sit in fourth place 11 points behind the Pars. Ayr's last win was four years ago on 20th February 2010 when a Tam McManus goal ended a run of ten trips to Dunfermline without a win.

This will be 84th league meeting; the Pars have won 36 to Ayr's 26, 21 have been drawn.
