Kevin Kyle scored the only goal of the game as Ayr secured a win at Forfar Athletic.

Kyle gave the visitors the lead after 62 minutes, heading in Kyle McAusland's shot-come-cross from six yards out.

Substitute Ross Campbell had an opportunity to level for the home side with just five minutes to go, but he fired over the bar from the middle of the box.

Forfar are now six games without a win following today's result.
