Match Report


Both sides were denied by the woodwork as Scottish Championship strugglers Arbroath and Ayr United fought out a stalemate Gayfield Park.

Ahkeem Rose and Sean McGinty went close for the visitors in the first half then Leighton McIntosh glanced a header against the post at the other end.

Rose threatened again, firing wide after rounding Ali Adams, who then denied the forward one-on-one.

Adams had to look lively again, tipping away Francis Amartey's low effort.

Ayr continued to apply the pressure and it was their turn to be denied by the woodwork when a Logan Chalmers shot hit the post.

It was a costly day on the injury front for Arbroath, with Gordon Walker, Thomas O'Brien and Zak Delaney all going off with knocks.

Arbroath are now two points adrift at the foot of the battle while Ayr drop to second bottom, behind Queen's Park on goal difference.
