Ayr United 3-0 Airdrieonians

Ayr United delivered a clinical second-half performance to heap more misery on basement side Airdrieonians.

Craig Malcolm's header crashed against the bar and Kevin Kyle had an effort cleared off the line as the hosts threatened before the interval.

Kyle broke the deadlock with a header on the hour and Michael Moffat thumped in his 17th goal of the season.

Alan Forrest slammed a close-range shot beyond Danny Rogers to complete a comfortable victory for the Honest Men.
