Recent respective form guides

Ayr United have only collected 1 win and 3 draws from the last six home games played. While Honest Men have scored 6, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Dunfermline A.'s away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. The Pars's have scored 6 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 7.

Ayr Utd. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 9 points from 15 matches. Dunfermline A.'s 24 points from 15 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 5th position.
