Ayr United 4-3 Stenhousemuir

Kevin Kyle struck late as Ayr beat Stenhousemuir to leapfrog their promotion rivals in the table.

Michael Moffat's 12th of the season put United ahead with a penalty but John Gemmell equalised, also from the spot.

Then Sean Dickson's strike gave the visitors the lead before Ayr's Michael Donald scored from close range.

Ross McNeil edged Stenny in front again but Moffat slammed home another spot-kick and Kyle headed the winner five minutes from time.
