Ayr move three points clear at Scottish League 1 summit after Raith victory

Ayr moved three points clear at the top of Scottish League 1 with a 3-0 win over Raith.There was never much doubt about this result from the moment Lawrence Shankland put Ayr ahead in the 14th minute, converting after Raith failed to clear the ball.A brilliant effort from Robbie Crawford doubled the lead in the 21st minute, crashing a fierce effort in off the crossbar.The Honest Men had a chance to make it three midway through the second half, but Michael Moffat skied a penalty, though they did add to the scoreline deep into injury time when Craig Moore headed home.
