Ayr travel to Edinburgh to take on Heriot's at Goldenacre in the BT Premiership on Saturday afternoon.
Heriot's have continued their excellent form from last season and, having started their current league campaign a week later than Ayr, come into this fixture with four wins in a row under their belt.
Ayr's nine-try haul against Stirling County last week will have given the men in pink and black a huge boost but head coach Calum Forrester knows an even stronger performance from his side is crucial this week.
'We have played well in spells over the last couple of weeks but we will need to tighten up our defence against a dangerous Heriot's side that has the ability to score from anywhere.'
Ayr are bolstered by the return from suspension of full-back Grant Anderson, as well as Will Bordill's reinstatement in the back row after injury.
Last week's hat-trick hero George Hunter steps off the positional merry-go-round and features on the bench in his usual place of prop. Graham Fisken and Richard Dalgleish also rejoin a speedy-looking list of replacements.
15. Grant Anderson; 14. Haddon McPherson, 13. Ross Curle (capt), 12. Danny McCluskey, 11. Cameron Taylor; 10. Frazier Climo, 9. Alistair Price; 1. Steven Longwell, 2. James Malcolm, 3. Javan Sebastian; 4. Robert McAlpine, 5. Scott Sutherland; 6. Blair Macpherson, 7. Will Bordill, 8. Pete McCallum.
16. Lewis Anderson, 17. George Hunter, 18. Graham Fisken, 19. Archie Russell, 20. Richard Dalgleish.
