All White in the end for David

David White scored an own-goal and a last-gasp winner as East Fife came from behind to beat Ayr 3-2.

The hosts took the lead in the third minute of the game when East Fife defender White turned a teasing cross into his own goal from close range.

On-loan Rangers defender Kyle McAusland doubled Ayr's lead in the 17th minute when he converted David Sinclair's cross from six yards out.

The visitors flew out of the blocks in the second period and it wasn't long before they reduced the arrears.

East Fife striker Scott McBride found the bottom right corner of Alistair Brown's net from the middle of the box in the 56th minute.

McBride levelled things up from the penalty spot in the 65th minute after Marc Twaddle brought Jamie Pollock down in the box.

White then made amends for his earlier own-goal when his stunning 25-yard effort found the top corner of the net.

Duo missing for Ayr

Ayr are again without the injured Martyn Campbell and Michael McGowan as they host East Fife looking to secure a fifth home win in a row.

Former Rangers youngster Darren McGill is available for the first time this season after overcoming a knee injury and the 17-year-old looks set for a place on the bench for the Honest Men.

Somerset Park boss Mark Roberts said: "We were beginning to look very strong at home but we have not been there for four weeks now so it will be good to be back.

"We defeated East Fife at their place earlier in the season and it would be great to do so again. We have to ensure we nullify the threat of Bobby Barr to make that happen."

East Fife have injury concerns when they head to Ayr looking for their third win in a row.

They will be without goalkeeper Michael Brown, defender Darren McCormack and strikers Paul McManus and Gareth Wardlaw.

The Fifers have had a difficult week training wise with recently appointed manager Billy Brown saying: "We had a good session earlier in the week but on Thursday night it was frozen off and there were no suitable indoor areas available.

"I don't think Ayr will have an advantage as all part-time teams have been in the same boat this week. It has been a great welcome back to part-time football for me."

Brown added: "We have beaten Arbroath and Albion Rovers and are very keen to keep good results coming."
