BACK-from-injury striker Craig Moore is urging Ayr United to be more clinical after being held 2-2 at home by Airdrie on Saturday.

Now the former Motherwell target man is looking to re-establish himself in the first team after four weeks on the sidelines with a hamstring injury.

He said: "We have done not bad in the past few weeks, with two wins and a draw in the last three games. I felt we were unlucky not to win, you need the rub of the green, we had a couple of shots cleared off the line and hit the post. You just need a wee bit of luck at times. But we must concentrate on ourselves and make sure we get the results. We were dominant most of the game but luck wasn't on our side.

Moore is determined to regain his starting place and said: "I felt good playing and had no ill effects. I hope to get back into the team and carry on from where I was, scoring goals. I tried to make an impact on Saturday but don't feel I did, but Lawrence Shankland is flying.Lawrence is going to push me to get myself to get myself better and get back into the team and I will push him but if we get into the team together I am sure we can score goals.

"That's only the first quarter finished now, although I feel we could have done better and dropped a few points we should have had but there are things we can work on in training."

He added: "We have to be a bit more ruthless in front of goal but also need a bit of luck. We all know we have the ability to score goals."

The striker is ambitious and commented: "Our first aim is to bounce back by taking three points at Forfar on Saturday. Everyone knows we want to go up - we want to win the league."

Manager Ian McCall was encouraged with his team's showing and said: "I thought we played really well in the first half and continued it in the second half. That volley (for the second goal) was like Van Basten and it landed right at their boy's feet. As the game progressed we were going a bit kamikaze and on the counter attack Airdrie looked dangerous but I felt we dominated from start to finish and should have won the game comfortably. We have ourselves to blame, Andy Geggan missed his best chance with a header which was an absolute sitter for his hat-trick. Robbie Crawford also hit the inside of the post.

"Today was down to ourselves - we were wasteful in front of goal."
