Ayr United 0-2 Stranraer

Goals from Grant Gallagher and Jamie Longworth gave Stranraer a surprise win over Ayr United in Scottish League One.

Ayr enjoyed the better first-half chances but were wasteful in front of goal, with Brian Gilmour, Alan Forrest and Ryan Donnelly all culpable.

They were made to pay in the second half when Gallagher opened the scoring with a fine 25-yard strike.

And Longworth raced around goalkeeper David Hutton to net Stranraer's second.
