Ayr United 5-0 Stranraer

Ayr United ended a run of four straight defeats with an emphatic win over 10-man Stranraer.

Michael Moffat won and converted a penalty before Craig Malcolm lashed home a second for the hosts.

Mikey Donald burst into the area before guiding the ball into the corner and Moffat danced through Stranraer's defence to net his second.

Frank McKeown was sent off for serious foul play and it got worse for the visitors when Alan Forrest scored.
