Ayr United vs Falkirk Match Preview
Falkirk travel to Ayr for their League Cup clash on Saturday looking to build on a narrow 1-0 win over Stranraer, where an early opener from Declan McManus proved enough for all three points, as well as their four-point tally in Group G – where they sit just a point behind pace-setters Livingston.
Bairns have held Livi to a 1-1 draw on Matchday 1 but saw the rivals turn the clash their way on penalties, which made it their only loss in last four outings. They will now want to build on the high team spirits too and it does feel Ray McKinnon has picked his men up, as they now have to search for a return to Championship.
Ayr have, on the other hand, fallen just short of a promotion to the top flight and saw a 1-3 home loss deny them a place despite a 1-1 draw in the second leg. They’ve been solid through most part of the campaign but still suffered two losses to Falkirk in 2019, which will be more worrying.
Indeed, Honest Men have seen woes in front of the home fans late last term and this has proven costly, as they suffered three losses and earned just one point along the way. They will now hope to kick off the new campaign in better shape here but we don’t see them doing so.
We will thus stick with the visitors to snatch at least a point at Somerset Park and doing so with a Double Chance – Draw or Away win looks like great value at 3/4 with Unibet as they showed off as a tough nut to crack already.
We have seen both sides enjoying some very narrow occasions lately and with that in mind, it’s just what we expect on the day – as we now also go for few goals with Under 2.5 Goals FT at 11/10 with Paddy Power.
