Match Report


Kevin Holt scored twice as Dundee United secured their second Scottish Championship win of the season against Ayr United.

Holt headed the Tangerines in front after the break and Louis Moult quickly struck to make the game safe.

And Holt's second in the last minute, a left-foot shot, added gloss to the scoreline.

Dundee United move to within two points of leaders Queen's Park, who have played a game more.
