Ayr United 5-2 Stenhousemuir

Jordan Preston scored his first goals of the season as Ayr breezed to a win over Stenhousemuir in League One.

He pounced on a defensive error to slot home after three minutes, but Stenny drew level 13 minutes later when Euan Murray headed in Alan Cook's cross.

Craig Moore converted Nicky Devlin's pass to put Ayr ahead then Jamie Barclay put through his own net.

Preston's second and Ross Caldwell's late strike made it five before Liam McCroary's headed consolation goal.
