Ayr United 0-2 Ross County
Ross County broke a run of four games without a goal by scoring twice as they sent title challengers Ayr crashing to their first home defeat of the season.

On-loan Dunfermline striker Owen Coyle fired home a cross from debutant Karim Boukraa on seven minutes.

Ayr spurned a great chance to level when Steven Boyack was pulled down on 30 minutes by Nicky Walker but the keeper redeemed himself by diving to his right to parry Boyack's weakly-hit kick.

Ayr threw everything into attack in a bid to hit back but were killed off on 48 minutes when Mark McCormick scored with a measured lob from 22 yards.

The fight went out of Ayr after that and County could have added to their lead when a Steven Ferguson drive was superbly tipped round the post by Marius Rovde.

Ayr United: Rovde, McEwan, Hughes, Duffy, Hugh Robertson, Boyack, McGinlay, Reynolds, Teale, Hurst, Grady.

Subs: Wilson, Annand, Nelson, Campbell, Scally.

Ross County: Walker, Perry, Maxwell, Irvine, Cunnington, Taggart, Steven Ferguson, McCormick, Henderson, Coyle, Boukraa.

Subs: Holmes, McQuade, David Mackay, Zahani-Oni, Hamilton.

Referee: K Clark
