Dodd banned for County visit
Ayr's on-loan Blackpool midfielder Adam Dodd will miss his side's clash with Ross County following his dismissal against Partick on Saturday.
Sean Higgins' broken foot keeps him out, with Ross Robertson likely to be recalled, as manager Brian Reid looks to get his men ready for a relegation fight.
Reid said: "We have to get back to making ourselves harder to beat, as that has been missing for the last couple of games.
"Hopefully facing Ross County will be the spur to get us going again as we have done well against the teams in the top half of the table. We drew with County at their place and gave them a real fright in the last game here so we know we can do well in this game."
Former Scotland defender David McNamee is Ross County's only absentee with a broken wrist.
Manager Derek Adams is telling his men to be ready for a scrap, saying: "Ayr will be fighting hard for the points. We had a good win at Livingston at the weekend but we will approach this game as we have all other games this season in that we need to look after ourselves.
"We have gone 29 games without defeat and I do not want to lose that record now. We did really well here back in February when we gave away a two-goal lead only to rise again and win the game 3-2."
