Match Report


Lewis McCann scored twice as Dunfermline beat Ayr United to leap from last place to sixth in the Scottish Championship.

In manager John Hughes' first game in charge, the 20-year-old nodded in an early corner for his first club goal.

Ryan Dow doubled the Fifers' lead in similar fashion, heading in another corner before the interval.

McCann grabbed his second of the day from close range following an Aaron Comrie header.

Just one point covers the bottom five in the division now, while fifth place Arbroath are 14 points clear of both Dunfermline and Morton.
