East Fife head in a south-westerly direction tomorrow to take on promotion hopefuls Ayr United at Somerset Park. Ian McCall’s men have provided no shortage of entertainment for their followers this season, but will be keen to improve on their recent home form to gain ground on current league leaders Raith Rovers. Bayview boss Darren Young, meanwhile, was once again left frustrated last Saturday after another below par performance from the Fifers, going down to Queen’s Park at Bayview. The men from Methil, like their opponents have been struggling at home lately and will go into tomorrow’s game in need of a morale boosting display. Mark Docherty looks set to miss out again through injury, while fellow midfielders Kyle Wilkie and Craig Thomson aim to make a return after being sidelined for two weeks. The squad was however boosted by the arrival of 19 year old Scott Allardice on loan from Dundee United earlier this week. It would be fair to acknowledge that the Honest Men have enjoyed more success in recent encounters between the sides, coming out on top in each of the last seven meetings, including a 3-0 win back in September at Somerset Park and a 4-1 success at Bayview in December. You have to go back over four years to find East Fife’s last success, a 3-2 win down in Ayr. David White was the hero for the Methil men on that occasion, with a spectacular last minute winner after coming back from 2-0 down. Scott McBride was the other Fifer on target with a double, including one from the penalty spot. The Bayview faithful will be hoping for a performance of similar character and quality tomorrow afternoon.
