EXPERIENCED defender Craig Reid is targeting a "perfect 10" as Ayr United go all out for title glory.

United had no game on Saturday as their scheduled clash with Arbroath at Gayfield Park was called off with the pitch unplayable owing to heavy snow.

Ayr were set to head to Cliftonhill to face Albion Rovers last night (Tuesday). The game was still listed as being on as we went to press although United officials were desperately trying to get in touch with Albion counterparts and it seemed unlikely it would go ahead.

Then on Saturday it's the big one as Raith Rovers, who are four points ahead but played one game more visit Somerset Park for a potential title decider.

Former Motherwell and Queen of the South ace Reid won the League One crown with Dunfermline Athletic in 2015-16 and is hoping to repeat the feat.

He said: "It was frustrating not having a game on Saturday but only 15 per cent of the fixtures in the country survived so it wasn't really a surprise. It was difficult last week as some of the boys couldn't get out owing to the snow so on a couple of days we had to do our own fitness routines."

The defender says we are in the business end of the season and maximum effort is required.

He said: "The way I see it is we have 10 games left and the aim is to win the title. But to guarantee that we must win every game and that means our destiny is in our own hands.

"We have a good record against Albion Rovers but they are fighting for their lives and there are no easy games. The aim is to go up there and take three points."

Looking ahead to the Raith showdown Reid said: "It's a big one - if we were to win the game that would give us confidence and also a massive psychological boost. They are a good side and I know Euan Norris and Graeme Smith well."

Manager Ian McCall insists all remaining games will be difficult as we move into the closing stages of the season and said: "Every game is tricky because everyone in this league has something to play for, but we must go to Cliftonhill if it's on and take three points. The Raith game will be a good one - we played our best football of the season away to them but lost 2-1. We must aim to win it and either go ahead of them or move within a point."

Chris Higgins is out injured this week, but everyone else is available.
