Match Report


Scott Brown fired Raith Rovers' late winner as Ayr United were knocked off top spot in the Scottish Championship.

Ayr fought back from 2-0 down after Brad Young and Andy Murdoch had cancelled out first-half goals from Raith's Kyle Connell and Sam Stanton.

But Raith midfielder Brown struck a late winner to halt Ayr's six-game unbeaten start to the season.

It leaves Ayr second behind Partick on goal difference, while Raith move above Hamilton and Morton into sixth.
