| Match result:
1-1 - Lost
Ayr have been struggling defensively recently conceding 8 goals in last 4 games (they lost 3 of those 4 games) and injury to key defender C. Higgins (D 19/3) won’t make things easier. In fact Ayr heading to this clash with injury crisis as A. Geggan (M 17/3), R. Docherty (M 14/0), R. Crawford (M 11/2), B. Gilmour (M 14/0) also are ruled out, while M. Rose (D 20/2), C. McGuffie (M 17/0) are doubtful.
In fact Ayr conceded min 2 goals in 5 of last 7 games haven’t kept a clean sheet since November and I doubt they could be able to stop Raith offense with such a long injury list.
After mini slump in November caused by injury crisis Raith reached top form 6 of last 7 and netting min 2 goals in all those 7 games. At home Raith are real force winning 10 of 10 and having in mind recent Ayr recultes and injury news I fancy home team to win it scoring 2 goals minimum.
