Free Match Tips from Punditfeed for Ayr United vs Elgin City

The last time Ayr United faced off against Elgin City, they returned from the trip with a 0-4 result under their belt. They will be playing in the comforts of Somerset Park this time around and will hope for a similar result to kickstart their season. Here are some bias-free tips we have put together for Ayr United vs Elgin City.

Ayr United to Win

In preparing for this meeting, Ayr United earned a 3-0 victory over Darvel. On the other hand, Elgin City were thrashed 0-4 by Rangers B. It was the same scoreline that was read following Elgin’s last encounter with Ayr United. Add home advantage in favour of the Honest Men and it becomes easier to back them for the three points.

Over 2.5 Goals

Before their dismantling at the hands of Ranger B, Elgin were demoralizing their rivals with goals galore in preseason meetings. That has been the case for Ayr United, who enter this meeting after sending three goals past Darvel. Their outing prior also finished with Over 2.5 Goals. Moreover, their prior two duels with Elgin also finished in a similar manner, hence our optimism for another high-scoring affair between these sides.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Elgin scored 20 goals in their six preseason outings. Ayr’s tally of six in three outings looks minuscule in comparison. With both sides revelling in front of the goal in preparation for the coming campaign, we should see fireworks when they officially kickstart the campaign. Expect goals at both ends of the pitch as was witnessed in their previous League Cup meeting back in July 2010.

Ayr United vs Elgin City Fixture Preview

Ayr United

Lee Bullen has a lot on his plate following Ayr United’s 8th place finish in the Scottish Championship. He needs to deliver early in the League Cup or will find himself by the curbside before August comes to a finish. So far, his charges have answered his call and will fancy their chances against Elgin.

Elgin City

The Black and Whites were poor in the Scottish League Two last season and like Ayr United have a lot to catch up to. While they impressed in their preseason outings, Rangers B poured water on their ambitions with a 0-4 drubbing. Going into this game, Gavin Price will be wary of Ayr United but also the temperamental nature of the performances of his charges.
