JUBILANT history maker Andy Geggan is hoping Ayr United's emphatic 3-0 home win against Airdrieonians will help bolster their title push.

The defender/midfielder scored the opener and 100th goal of the season as the Honest Men became the first British senior side to reach the century mark and they added two more on a glorious afternoon.

And manager Ian McCall is going all out to beat the tally of the class of 1987-88- Ally MacLeod's Second Division title-winning team, who bagged some 104 goals in 36 games.

Geggan, whose strike was his sixth of the season, said: "It was a bit of an occasion with 100 goals but I was just delighted to get the win. I spoiled the strikers' days. I had a feeling I was going to score and it was nice to get the first and the 100th. It was great to get another clean sheet after the East Fife game. But it was great to get another clean sheet as they are massive. Hopefully this win has given us a bit of momentum to kick on from there. Now we are just going to kick on for the last 10 games and see where that takes us."

Asked if he would like the team to eclipse the class of 1987-88 Geggan said: "I just want to concentrate on our team."

McCall was impressed with the display and said: "That's the performance I'm proudest of this season. Airdrie are a very good side and we restricted them to very few chances. Lawrence Shankland (who scored his 21st goal in 22 games) was irresistible at times. It was also brilliant to look round at the bench and see everyone there. It was great that Robbie Crawford came on after coming back from injury as he's the best player in this division."

Asked about the century milestone: "It's terrific for our club to score 100 goals, the players deserve an awful lot of credit for putting the ball in the net, although I didn't expect us to get that many.

"Ally MacLeod's team scored 104 goals in 45 matches but we have scored 102 in 36 games so I'm sure we can go on to beat that."

However the boss is urging the players to keep their feet firmly on the ground as they head to Gayfield Park to face Arbroath on Saturday and next Tuesday, March 6 are away to Albion Rovers.

He added: "We are still four points off the top and every game from now on in is important. We will focus on the Arbroath match first and they are going well in third place. But we have already won up there this season and will be aiming to keep our winning run going."
