Airdrieonians 3-0 Ayr United

Ayr United slipped to second bottom in Scottish League One after being humbled by Airdrieonians.

Bryan Prunty put the hosts ahead early on with a close-range header and doubled the advantage when his left-foot shot found the net.

The visitors were reduced to 10 men when Paul Slane was sent off for a challenge on Patrick Boyle.

And Kevin McKinlay's own goal completed a frustrating afternoon for the Honest Men.
