Leaders made to fight for win

League leaders Queen of the South came from behind twice to beat bottom side Ayr 4-2.

Ayr took the lead in the ninth minute through Darian Mackinnon, who steered home from six yards from Kyle McAusland's knock down.

The lead lasted seven minutes as Nicky Clark equalised for the visitors, but Ayr went back in the lead in the 19th minute as Mackinnon grabbed his second.

Queen of the South fought back again and Paul Burns' 31st-minute header ensured the game was level at the break.

Gavin Reilly gave the away side the lead in the 62nd minute as he collected Chris Higgins' pass before firing past Darren Martin.

And Reilly added his second seven minutes later with a neat left-footed finish from inside the area to secure the points.

MacKinnon set for Honest Men debut

Ayr can include Darrian MacKinnon against league leaders Queen of the South at Somerset Park.

The striker has joined on loan from Hamilton.

The Honest Men are hoping defenders John Robertson and Ryan McStay will return after injury, but player- manager Mark Roberts, Michael McGowan, Martyn Campbell and Anthony Marenghi are all injured and Adam Hunter is banned.

Roberts, who is hoping to fix up a defensive loan signing ahead of kick-off said: "We are not in the best of shape for going up against a team in form but if the players give a real sleeves-rolled-up performance requested from them then we can take something form this game.

"A win would get our season going in a positive direction."

Queen of the South manager Allan Johnston has a fully-fit squad for the trip.

Derek Lyle has returned to training for the top versus bottom encounter at Somerset Park.

Despite the length of the league separating the sides the leaders will not be taking anything for granted.

Johnston said: "We are only a few games into the season and Ayr will come good so we will not be underestimating the challenge facing us at all.

"Our players were fantastic in our last game when we beat Arbroath 6-0 and have been looking to play this game every day since so they are desperate to get going again which is a really good sign."
