Alloa Ath. prepare to entertain Ayr United at Recreation Park on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 20 of the 43 previous games, with the Wasps winning just 10.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Recreation Park was less than a year ago, in January 2007, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a Scottish Division Two match.
