Stenhousemuir 0-4 Ayr United

Promotion-chasing Ayr United proved too strong for Stenhousemuir with a convincing display.

Michael Donald put the visitors in front before Craig Moore and a brace from Jordan Preston sealed the win for the rampant visitors.

Donald struck in the first minute before Moore's effort flew beyond the helpless goalkeeper Colin McCabe.

Preston scored from the spot after Ciaran Summers tripped Robby McCrorie and added a fourth late on.
