STATS! United's all-time record on artificial surfaces

Ayr United travel to Ochilview on Saturday to face Stenhousemuir with a less than glorious recent record on artificial surfaces. United played 9 fixtures on artificial surfaces last season - including four games at Station Park - and failed to win any of them, starting with a shock defeat to East Stirlingshire on the opening day of the season. In all the Honest Men have played 30 competitive fixtures on artificial surfaces. Here is a run down of some statistics covering those games:

P30 W9 D7 L14 F41 A50

On the 5th Semptember 1987 Ayr United were involved in the first ever Scottish League fixture to be played on an artificial surface at Annfield, home of Stirling Albion.
United have conceded an average of 1.66 goals per game and kept 6 clean sheets in 30 competitive matches on artificial surfaces.
Ayr have taken just 2 from a possible 24 points in their last 8 league games on artificial surfaces.
Ayr's biggest win on an artificial surface came at the Excelsior Stadium in March 2011 when they beat Airdrie United 5-0. It is United’s last league victory on an artificial surface.
United have played on artificial surfaces at seven different grounds against nine opponents. This includes Brechin City at Forfar’s Station Park last season.
Ayr have nine wins and have earned 7 draws on artificial surfaces meaning they are unbeaten in 53% of their competitive fixtures on the surface.
SPFL grounds now have artificial surfaces. Ayr are yet to play on five of them (Falkirk, Hamilton, Queen of South, Annan & Clyde) in a competitive fixture. United didn’t play on Dunfermline's plastic pitch which was in place between 2003 – 2005 but did play two games at New Douglas Park on its original artificial surface.
It is 21 months since United's last win upon an artificial surface, which came in a Scottish Cup replay in November 2011 at Montrose. That is a run of 10 matches without a win on an artificial surface.
United have scored 41 goals on artificial surfaces, an average of 1.36 per game.
The Honest Men have scored in 87% of their matches on artificial surfaces.
