Morton remain in rsce for a promotion playoff place, but is in bad run with only two wins since early november and in last three rounds gained only one point losing also the FA cup match.
Today hosts remain without McKeown ( def.16), D. Johnstone ( att.3+1), while Oliver ( att.8+5 1g) is a new miss and midf. Telfer ( 15+3 3g) and Tidser ( 19+3 4g second scorer) and doubtful till last minute. In winter market also gone Tiffoney ( midf.5+6 3g) and MacLean ( att.9+7 1g).
Also Ayr come from a quite bad run with only two wins in last eight rounds, but they depends a lot from scoring machine Shankland ( 20g) upfront and infact their worst period was coincident with a long absence of the topscorer.
As in last round - won 3-1 against Alloa - Shankland is available, while their only problems are the probable miss of Kerr ( midf. 12), Geggan ( mdif. 17 2g) and Forrest ( att.10+3 3g) all not new missings if not available, anyway, while guests reinforced well during the winter not leaving regulars and with the arrives of players from Ross County, Rangers and Kilmarnock.
With a win here Ayr could return at top of table and away win is really possible considering bad form of hosts.
