Ayr United 4-1 Stenhousemuir

Ayr United recorded a comfortable win over Stenhousemuir to draw level with second-placed Peterhead in League One.

It took until midway through the second half for the hosts to get ahead, Craig Moore netting on the rebound after Ryan Stevenson's free-kick had been saved.

Jamie McCormack headed Stenny level but the visitors then had Alan Cook dismissed for two bookings.

Stuart Malcolm's own goal put Ayr back ahead and strikes by Stevenson and Alan Trouten completed their victory.
