What a difference from this fixture last year ! looked really composed throughout - towards the end Ayr started to push more in panic rather than having ourselves stressed out - great to get the bonus point as the penalties were Italian Style from rovers ! Great to seen fans present - Feels like football really is properly coming home to its true environment !
Solid performance all round with the penalty shootout a bonus. Well done all. Even the ref who had exactly the kind of game you want refs to have. Couldn't do a certain game tomorrow night could you? 👍
By no means a classic but you’ve got to be happy with a clean sheet against a championship side…and I think we have found ourselves a really good keeper. Some excellent saves during the afternoon. Not a lot of chances created with probably the best falling to Charlie Reilly, he should have scored but I wouldn’t be too harsh on him . Give the lad a run of games and I think we may have a player there.
Jamie McGowan had a good afternoon and you could see him helping Sean Fagan after a pretty shaky start. Young Fagan had a disappointing season last year so let’s hope this will be a better one.

Had a laugh on Saturday when an Ayr official in the directors box spotted an Ayr fan in the Coatbridge end of the stand and waved to him. The guy was mortified and was gesticulating frantically for the bloke to stop waving as he didn’t want to be identified and potentially kicked out.
