Airdrieonians 1-2 Ayr United

Ayr United came from behind to beat Airdrieonians and stay top of Scottish League One.

Liam Watt turned inside from the left before curling a fine effort into the far corner to give Airdrie the lead.

Craig Moore had a header saved by goalkeeper Neil Parry but the Ayr man did find a leveller before the break, firing high into the net.

And Brian Gilmour's stunning drive midway through the second half ensured victory for Ian McCall's side.
