Saturday see’s a packed a schedule of Scottish Championship football with a crucial match taking place near the bottom of the league between Ayr United and Greenock Morton. Ayr find themselves in 7th place in the league just four points above the relegation places, whilst opponents Morton find themselves one place lower, but level on points with those currently occupying the relegation spots. This is a crucial clash as a victory for Ayr would see them move further away from trouble, whilst a win for Morton would see them move just a point behind their opponents and give themselves a little bit of breathing room.
Ayr have enjoyed a mini mid season revival and come into this match in good form. Ayr currently find themselves 4th in the form table after having taken eight points from the last fifteen available. They have only lost one of their last five and head into this match fresh off the back of two consecutive victories. Morton also head to this match off the back of a recent victory but have found things slightly tougher as that has been their only league win in their last four matches. Away from home Morton are without a win in their last five and they have a tough task here against an Ayr side who have some pretty good form at home. This could be a tight game but we will just have to give the edge to Ayr.
Over 2.5 goals
This is a tough market to predict as both teams have a mixed record when it comes to being involved in matches that have more than 2.5 goals. Ayr have seen over 2.5 goals exceeded in three of their last five, whilst Morton have seen the total surpassed in three of their last five. When these sides square off, goals can sometimes be hard to come by as in the last five meetings only twice have over 2.5 goals been exceeded. In what could be a competitive and tight game – we will side with the under here.
Both teams to score
Ayr’s recent good form is largely down to their good defensive play with the home side being able to keep successive clean sheets in their last two matches. Ayr have only seen both teams score twice in their last five matches, Morton have struggled at the back and despite thrashing Dunfermline 5-0 in their last match, they have seen both teams score in their previous four contests. When the sides meet both teams have scored in three of the last five contests and we are banking on that happening again.
