Warriors on the march

Stenhousemuir moved within three points of a play-off place following a 4-0 win over 10-man Ayr.

The Warriors went ahead after four minutes when Sean Dickson fired a powerful header past Graeme Smith in the Ayr goal.

Stenhousemuir doubled their lead after 19 minutes when Ross McMillan flicked Jamie Reid's corner onto the head of John Gemmell, who buried his header into the top left corner.

Ayr were reduced to 10 men after 40 minutes when Christopher Smith was sent off for bringing down Nicholas Devlin in the box.

John Gemmell stepped up and slotted home the resulting penalty.

Darren Smith made it four after 55 minutes with a well-placed shot into the bottom corner, and they could have had more but Jamie Reid rattled the crossbar.

Skipper out of vital clash

Stenhousemuir need a win against visitors Ayr United to keep their thin play-off hopes alive however the Warriors will be without skipper Scott Buist who has an injured knee.

Brown Ferguson is also out after an ankle operation and Stewart Kean is missing due to a calf problem with manager Martyn Corrigan hoping that his side can build on their midweek success of defeating champions Queen of the South 2-1.

Corrigan said: "It was a good win on Tuesday night and it meant that we had picked up seven points from our last three games to keep us in the hunt.

"Whilst that is a good run it may not be enough to get us into the play-offs so we have to target nine points from our last three games."

Ayr United will give midfielder David Sinclair a fitness test on his injured ankle ahead of kick-off.

The Honest Men are already without Martyn Campbell and Michael McGowan with knee injuries and John Robertson with an ankle problem.

Manager Mark Roberts is looking for his side to end the season with 12 points from four games.

Roberts said: "Our play-off hopes have all but gone but we can still end the season positively. We defeated Albion Rovers last week and the plan is to build on that and get as many points on board as possible.

"We will attack Stenhousemuir and I am sure they will attack us as they need a win to have any chance of making the play-offs. It should be a really open game."
