Ayr United 2-3 East Fife

David White scored for both sides as East Fife recovered from two goals down to beat Ayr United.

White turned into his own net to give Ayr a third-minute lead and the hosts went further ahead when Kyle McAusland converted David Sinclair's cross on 17 minutes.

Scott McBride's second-half double levelled the match with the forward adding a penalty to his 56th-minute strike, the spot-kick awarded for a foul by Marc Twaddle on Jamie Pollock.

And White atoned for his own goal with a stunning 25-yard winner a minute from the end.
