SUPER Ayr United continue to re-write the record books following their epic 3-0 win away to Premiership side Dundee in the Betfred Cup.

Their reward is a trip to Ibrox Stadium to face Rangers in the quarter-finals late next month.

They won by more than two goals on a Premiership ground for the first time since August 26, 1981 when the Honest Men hammered Partick Thistle 5-1 in a League Cup tie.

It's also their biggest win away in the top flight since defeating Morton 3-0 at Cappielow in the old First Division on New Year's Day, 1972 and Lawrence Shankland is the first player since Ally McCoist of Rangers in 1983-84 to score nine goals in the League Cup.

Now manager Ian McCall is yearning for a bumper crowd on Saturday as the Honest Men host Dunfermline Athletic. But he is urging the players to keep their feet firmly on the ground after they chalked up their seventh consecutive clean sheet to continue their highly impressive start to the season. They need just one more to equal their record eight in 1912-13.

McCall admitted he had been confident of winning the game beforehand and said: "I'm very proud of everyone - the player and fans. In the last year the away support has been out of this world. We knew we had a real chance and at half-time we could have been two goals up. It could have even more than 3-0 and it was good to see Lawrence Shankland getting his obligatory two goals and great to see Michael Moffat getting one. We are defending well and the goalie, Ross Doohan has an air of confidence and is a smashing young man. We made an awful lot of people happy on Saturday."

Saturday sees the Pars visit on Championship business and the boss hopes for a massive home support.

He said: "The supporters were fantastic yet again and we hope for a bumper crowd on Saturday to get behind the team."

But he cautioned: " I must stress this is just the start, we have not done anything yet. We are a on a great run and want to keep it going.

"I know a lot about Dunfermline, I respect them and they one of the teams who could be vying for the title, we are at home and want to go and pick up another three points."

The boss admitted the quarter-final tie, scheduled to be played between September 25 and 27, would be a real test and added: "To be honest from a footballing sense we would have preferred another team, but this is a great draw financially for us. But it's quite a while away and we have to focus on other games first."
