Recent respective form guides
Ayr United need to improve on their recent home record of just 3 draws from the previous six. While Honest Men have scored 6, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.
Raith Rovers's away form is none too clever either, winning and losing 3 each of the last six games. While the Rovers have hit 8 goals, 13 have hit the back of the wrong net.
Ayr Utd. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 13 points from 13 matches. Raith Rovers lie just outside the playoff positions in the Bells Scottish Division Two, picking up 17 from their 13 games so far.
