Having disposed of Highland League club Deveronvale in the 3rd round of the Scottish Cup, United could now have a visit from anothert Highland League club in round 4.
Wick Academy recorded a superb 4-4 draw with Brechin City in round 3 and the winner of this match will visit Ayr in the next round.
Ayr United and Wick have never met previously in any match and so a win for the Highland league side will set up their first ever meeting.
Brechin City on the other hand will not have happy memeories should they make it through to play Ayr. It was only last May that the clubs met in the Division one play off semi-finals with Ayr recording a 2-0 win at Brechin clinching the tie with a 3-2 win at Ayr.
A win for Ayr no matter who they play could set them up for a plumb tie against a top Premier League club.
