League leaders boosted by Gilmour return

Brian Gilmour is fit again and rejoins the Ayr squad as the League One leaders prepare to host Airdrie.

On-loan Motherwell striker Craig Moore (groin) is the only absentee for the Honest Men as they look to stretch their unbeaten run to 14 games and keep ahead of Dunfermline.

Ahead of the game, manager Ian McCall said: "We were fortunate to win at Airdrie's place earlier in the season so we have to play as well as we did that day. David Cox is a real threat and we need to keep him under control."

Airdrie are again without striker Jim Lister who had groin surgery recently.

United manager Gary Bollan is delaying naming his side until Marc Fitzpatrick has a fitness test.

Bollan said: "Ayr have done well under Ian McCall and they are top of the league for a reason. They have good players that have played well and who have the confidence of a long unbeaten run behind them so this will be a tough game.

"We lost soft goals to Dunfermline last weekend and that cost us the game. If we tighten things up we have the players that are capable of doing something at Ayr. "
