Ayr United 2-0 Arbroath

A strike from former Scotland cap Kevin Kyle helped Ayr to a win which lifts them to third in the League One table.

The visitors went closest early on, with Robert Linn's left-footed shot saved by Ayr goalkeeper David Hutton.

Then, with the half-time whistle about to sound, Kyle headed home a floated Scott McLaughlin corner to put the home side in front.

Adam Hunter sealed the points for Ayr with a second-half, left-footed strike after picking up a Michael Donald pass.
