Martin Grehan netted twice as Stranraer cruised to victory over Ayr United in Scottish League One.

Sean Winter steered past goalkeeper David Hutton for the opener and Grehan netted his first from the penalty spot after being fouled by Alan Lithgow.

Grehan fired in from close range following good work by Andrew Stirling at the start of the second half.

And Stirling added his own name to the scoresheet when he struck from inside the box.
