When Ally MacLeod left in December 1990, Davy Wells once again found himself as interim manager pending a permanent appointment, the obvious choice as the current assistant manager.
His first match was a 0-0 draw against Airdrie but he managed two successive wins over the new few weeks, 2-0 at Clydebank and 1-0 at home to Morton. Kilmarnock were up next on New Years day and as the Killie hadnt won a neâ€™rday match since 1967 Ayr were confident.
The 2-1 defeat in front of 9,448 spectators went against the trend.
Still, he had acquitted himself well in his four matches in charge ahead of the appointment of George Burley who kept him on as assistant until the end of the season.
