Accurate Predictions and Betting Tips for Ayr vs Stenhousemuir

Ayr to Win Halftime/Fulltime

The big winner in the first game was Stenhousemuir, who, although being in League Two, beat the only other team in Group A of Scotland’s top flight. The defensive work was crucial, but so was the luck, because their first opponent had more shots, but they were less accurate.

The Honest Men have won the last six battles, and based on these results, I expect the locals to win the first and second parts.

Under 3.5 Goals

The Warriors will be playing away this time, and we do not expect them to keep a clean sheet. In the two pre-season friendlies, the away team gave up a total of five goals.

The host kept a clean sheet in the last three h2h. The number of goals scored by both clubs the previous matchday was not surprising. Taking all of that information into account here is my prediction for Ayr vs Stenhousemuir is a result with less than 3.5 goals.

Goals in Both Halves

Stenhousemuir have allowed goals in all six of their previous encounters with Ayr. In fact, the host team scored five goals the last time they met.

In their last six games, the Warriors conceded 12 goals. Given the defensive vulnerability, I believe goals will be scored in both the first and second halves.

The most recent Ayr vs Stenhousemuir preview:

Ayr

Coach Lee Bullen is pleased with his team’s early success but recognizes there is still much opportunity for improvement. The Honest Men have now won three consecutive games after winning two pre-season friendlies and the first round of the Scottish League Cup.

In the previous round, Ayr went to Stirling and came away with a late win. The Honest Men narrowly equalized with 6 minutes remaining after losing a goal in the first half. The game was decided by a penalty shootout. Ayr’s players all scored, while their opponents missed two.

Stenhousemuir

Stenhousemuir started the group stage with a loss last season. After a challenging game with St Johnstone, Gary Naysmith’s side managed to take up three points at home this time.

Neither team was able to score throughout the first 45 minutes. However, in the second half, The Warriors came out firing, and Euan O’Reilly scored the game’s sole goal in the 48th minute. Stehousemuir now leads the group, as they are the only team with three points.
