History of the Airdrie United v Ayr United fixture

Airdrie Utd. prepare to entertain Ayr United at Shyberry Excelsior Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The The Diamonds are clearly on top, having won 43 and lost only 14 of the 72 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Shyberry Excelsior Stadium was less than a year ago, in May 2009, with Ayr Utd. inflicting a narrow 0-1 defeat upon the The Diamonds in an Scottish League Play-Offs (Lvls 2&3) match.

Recent respective form guides

Airdrie United will be hoping to improve on their poor home form, collecting just 4 draws from the last six contests. Only 4 goals have been registered in this time, with 6 in the wrong end.

Ayr Utd.'s away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the Honest Men have hit 4 goals, 10 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Airdrie Utd. find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 11 games have yielded only 4 points. Ayr Utd. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 7 points from 11 matches.
