Livingston 2-0 Ayr United
Livingston won the battle of the first division's two big spenders to take an outright lead at the top.

Ayr welcomed back Pat McGinlay in midfield, plus John Hughes and Neil Duffy to bolster the defence.

However, the West Lothian side took the lead after only five minutes through a superb strike by summer signing Barry Wilson and the only surprise was that it took until the 49th minute for them to add to it.

It was fellow forward David Bingham who finally made the breakthrough, striking the ball home for a wonderful solo effort.

Former Dunfermline man Bingham thought he had volleyed the third late in the second half, but his effort was ruled offside.

However, having survived that scare, Ayr had their day of misery complete when midfielder Glynn Hurst was sent off after 79 minutes for a terrible tackle that resulted in David Hagen needing to be stretchered from the field.

Livingston: Alexander, McManus, Fleming, McCulloch, Coughlan, Anderson, Wilson, McPhee, Britton, Bingham, Hagen.

Subs: Sweeney, Smith., McCormick, Keith, McCaldon.

Ayr: Rovde, Lovering, Renwick, Duffy, Hughes, Craig, Connolly, Wilson, Hurst, Burns, McGinlay.

Subs: Crilly, Campbell, Bradford, Benlaredg, Nelson.

Referee: Willie Young.
