This marked new manager Jim McLean's first game in charge and his first team selection contained several surprises. Stuart Markland was drafted into the side with Wattie Smith moving to inside-right and Jackie Copland returning to the centre-forward berth and Kenny Cameron moving to outside left. And the new combination started with a real buzz.
Kenny Cameron scooped home a Jackie Copland pass after only 8 minutes, but Ayr refused to buckle under and in the face of a series of poundings. The visitors equalised out of the blue in the 23rd minute thanks to a Doug Mitchell first timer.
United went back in front after 57 minutes when Alan Gordon flicked the ball on to Jim Cameron who turned it across goal for Tommy Traynor to crack home a low drive. However, Jim McLean was denied a debut victory by Ayr's Phil McGovern who scrambled home an equaliser 18 minutes from the final whistle.
