Recent respective form guides

Ayr United's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Honest Men have scored 7, a worringly large 13 have been leaked at the other end.

Queen o.t.S.'s away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the The Doonhamers have hit 6 goals, 12 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Ayr Utd. are stuck down in the relegation zone of Bells Scottish Division One with a return of just 15 points from their 19 games thus far. Queen o.t.S. are just outside the promotion places, in 3rd, having taken 33 points from 19 games.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Its been a distinctly poor show from Ayr Utd. at home in recent games, and, though I cannot see a run starting here, I do think the Honest Men will at least gain a draw. Score draw
