Stirling County v Ayr preview

Ayr visit Bridgehaugh this Saturday to take on Stirling County in the BT Premiership, kicking off at 3pm.

After last week's high-scoring win against Boroughmuir, the men in pink and black will be keen to keep the ball rolling as the league nears its conclusion.

County haven't played since before Christmas as their game with Melrose last week was called off due to a frozen pitch, but Ayr head coach Calum Forrester sees the danger in this.

"They will be raring to go, having not played in a number of weeks, and have a strong squad out this week."

Former All Black and current Glasgow Warrior Corey Flynn is part of Stirling's squad for the game.

In Ayr's ranks, Jamie Bova moves up from the bench as Danny McCluskey takes the inside centre berth in place of the unavailable Ross Curle.

Lewis Anderson starts at hooker, with Robbie Smith, Adam Prentice and Richard Dalgleish amongst the replacements.

15. Grant Anderson; 14. Jamie Bova, 13. Archie Russell, 12. Danny McCluskey, 11. Craig Gossman; 10. Frazier Climo, 9. David Armstrong; 1. George Hunter, 2. Lewis Anderson, 3. Steven Longwell; 4. Robert McAlpine, 5. Scott Sutherland; 6. Blair Macpherson, 7. Will Bordill, 8. Pete McCallum (c).

16. Robbie Smith, 17. Adam Prentice, 18. Craig Stevenson, 19. Richard Dalgleish, 20. Stafford McDowall.
