Ayr United 5-2 Falkirk
Glynn Hurst bagged a hat-trick as five-star Ayr showed their promotion intent with a stunning win over Falkirk.

On-loan striker Paddy Connolly got the home side off to a flyer when he fired home after only 77 seconds.

Mark Roberts levelled from the spot on 51 minutes and then Hurst got his first goal on 65.

The lead lasted only four minutes as Andy Lawrie's flick pulled the Bairns back into contention.

John Henry could have put the visitors ahead but his shot hit the bar before Pat McGinlay put Ayr in front on 75 minutes.

Hurst then struck twice on 79 and 82 minutes to wrap up a remarkable victory.
