Ayr United manager Mark Kerr says the Honest Men can now go on streak of games after beating Alloa Athletic 4-1 at the weekend and ending their winless stretch.

Ayr United were without a win in six ahead of meeting the Wasps at Somerset Park but started the game well going 1-0 up courtesy of Tom Walsh.

The winger drilling in from just inside the box following Alloa’s failure to clear from a corner.

Alloa equalised not long after through former Ayr United man Alan Trouten who’s quick free kick from just beyond the halfway line caught out Viljami Sinisalo and floated into the back of the net.

Luke McCowan put the home side back in front with a curling effort into the bottom right corner and Ayr went into the interval ahead.

In the second half, the Honest Men put the game beyond doubt thanks to Aaron Muirhead’s penalty and another finish from McCowan.

Kerr was quick to praise his forward line after their big win with Walsh, who got two assists along with his goal, getting praised for his crossing ability.

The manager said: “He did everything we asked from him and everything we’ve been craving for as well, bringing constant width to the team and great quality into the box.

“Andre Wright has not played in seven or eight weeks, but he started to find some momentum in the second half and nearly got on the scoresheet as well.”

“I believe now we will go on a run and we have got some big games coming up so we can hopefully get the fans behind us again after the doom and gloom of recent results.

“Kerr is hopeful Wright will not be the last player to sign for the Honest Men this window.

“It is only cross borders that closes on February 1, Scottish transfers and free agents can still come in until the end of February.

“So we have still got time and it gives us a bit of leeway to go another week with the squad and if we feel there is a certain area that needs improving we are able to do that.

“My hands aren’t tied at all and the board have backed me that if there is someone that comes up then we can do it. “
