Match Report


Ayr United hauled themselves four points clear of the Scottish Championship relegation play-off spot by earning a crucial win at Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

The sides started the day separated by just a point, but George Stanger's early opener set the visitors on their way to extending that gap.

Billy Mckay levelled from the spot in first-half stoppage time.

But Fraser Bryden's 61st-minute winner earned a priceless victory for Ayr.

The win moves Scott Brown's side up to seventh as Inverness, who have won just one of their last seven league games, remain second bottom.
