Ayr United 6-0 Falkirk

Ayr United dealt a huge blow to Falkirk's promotion hopes by administering an incredible 6-0 thrashing to the Bairns at Somerset Park.

The home side were quite superb as they demolished Falkirk to close the gap on Division One leaders Livingston to eight points.

Eddie Annand grabbed the first goal after 21 minutes with a far-post header and Falkirk missed two fine chances before they were punished again by David Craig who added the second goal after 67 minutes.

The outcome was put beyond doubt when Mark Campbell added the third moments later and the home side then ran riot in the closing stages.

Lee Sharp and Gary Teale inflicted further damage before John Bradford completed the rout with the sixth and final goal late on.

Ayr: Nelson, Campbell, Duffy, Craig, McEwan, Teale, Scally, McGinlay, Sharp, Bradford, Annand.

Subs: Renwick, Lovering, Rovde, Crilly, Grady.

Falkirk: Hogarth, Christie, Nicholls, Denham, Lawrie, Rennie, Henry, Kerr, McQuilken, Craig, Hutchison.

Subs: Seaton, McStay, McAllister, Roberts, Hill.
