Ayr United 0-2 Stranraer

Stranraer remain three points clear at the top of Scottish League One after a comfortable 2-0 win at Ayr United.

Jackson Longridge had already missed from close range before Craig Malcolm slotted home Sean Winter's pass to give the Blues the lead.

The victory over second-bottom United was Stranraer's fifth win from six league games.
