Ayr-Killie tie suits Smith

Have your say

Chris SMITH admits he would love to see Ayr United paired with local rivals Kilmarnock after securing their place in the semi-final of the Scottish Communities League Cup.

Smith grabbed the only goal of the game with nine minutes remaining against St Mirren on Tuesday and the defender believes a clash with fellow Ayrshire side Killie in the last four of the competition would be the most mouth-watering encounter for the Irn-Bru First Division side yet. Smith said: “If we beat them I think there would be a bit of a riot.

“It would be great for the fans and everyone connected with the club to get the chance to put one over on your rivals.”
