Stirling vs Ayr Lineups, Analysis, and Latest Team News

Stirling

Stirling not only preserved the core of their squad that won the League Two title last season but they also added extra depth and quality to their ranks this off-season. The attacking duo Carrick-Thompson scored 28 goals between them in all competitions last term and they remain the main hope up front.

There are no injury issues reported in the squad and the rules of the League Cup allow for the impressive teenage forward Kangni-Soupke to make his debut.

Ayr

Ayr failed miserably in the playoffs of the Championship last season, they lost 0-8 on aggregate vs Partick Thistle. Major rebuilding of the squad took place in the off-season since then so as many as 6-7 players could be making their debuts in this match.

Defenders Musonda and Stanger are nursing minor injuries and both might not be risked.
