Craig Malcolm's second goal of the season secured Ayr's win over Queen's Park in the Scottish Cup.

The visitors took the lead in the 27th minute when James Brough nodded in a Blair Spittal cross.

Ayr's Anthony Marenghi fired in a free-kick, then Alan Lithgow added another before Malcolm made it 3-1 with a fine strike 10 minutes later.

Queen's Park pulled one back in the 67th minute when Spittal struck from close-range, but Ayr held on to win.
