Brechin City 2-1 Ayr United

A goal in each half earned Brechin their third successive win as they moved up to fourth in Scottish League One with a win over Ian McCall's Ayr.

The hosts took just 16 minutes to break the deadlock, defender Paul McLean grabbing his third of the campaign and Andrew Jackson hit the bar with a shot.

The points were sealed with 10 minutes to go when Paul McLean teed up Robert Thomson to fire home.

Ayr grabbed a goal in added time when Michael Donald set up Alan Forrest.
