Behind the scenes at Scottish League One side, Ayr United - in the manager's office, on the team bus and into the dressing rooms of every club they visit. Player pranks, dressing-room bust-ups, flaring tempers and flying missiles encapsulate the range of emotions as the lads aim for promotion. Team talks, motivational speeches and post-mortems are all part of the matchday experience in a rollercoaster season. Illegal betting charges against striker Michael Moffat and the outrageous behaviour of kit man Alan Kerr are just two of the season's sideshows - while manager Mark Roberts provides a wonderful insight into the loneliest job in football. Tension mounts as the business end of the season approaches. Will the Honest Men pull it off and experience the glory that comes with promotion? Or will the campaign end in failure, consigning the club to yet another season in the lower reaches of Scottish football?
