Ayr United 0-1 Albion Rovers

Michael Dunlop earned Albion Rovers victory over Ayr United and their first three points since 23 February.

Having not won any of their previous eight contests, Dunlop's second-half volley finally brought some cheer to a club fifth in the table, three points from the play-off berths.

He collected a header back to him from Scott McBride before finding the net.

It meant a fourth defeat in five for Ayr, who sit third in League One ahead of the final three fixtures.
