Match Report

Predictably against any side under the control of manager Ally McLeod, Ayr United fought valiantly and, particularly, in the latter stages of the first half, proved a real handful. A Kevin Gallacher goal early in the second period, however, settled us and allowed us to play some of our best football of the season so far. We started well enough, Iain Ferguson was denied by the last minute intervention of an Ayr defender, Iain then headed a Kevin Gallacher cross narrowly past. Billy Thomson then parried Irons' shot around the post but the best chance so far felt to Kevin Gallacher, but he screwed his shot over the bar.

Minutes later an even better chance came Ayr's way, but McKenzie, presented with an open goal, shot over. Early in the second half Kevin Gallacher did find the net, scoring from 20 yards. The second came soon after when Ralph Milne sped down the left and floated over a cross from which Iain Ferguson directed a header in via a post. He didn't have long to wait for his second. Wilson chopped Kevin Gallacher in the box and Iain Ferguson duly obliged with his second, this time from the spot.
