McCall offers Heart to Hart; LEAGUE 1Raith Rovers .. 2 Ayr United .. .1.

Ian McCall consoled blunder keeper Jordan Hart - then said he was proud of his battlers.

Raith moved four points clear at the top after coming from behind to win after Ayr new boy Lawrence Shankland's opener.

Lewis Vaughan scored for the 10th game in a row and Jason Thomson hit Rovers' winner.

But mistakes from Hart along with Chris Higgins' late sending off made it a bad day for United. McCall said: "I've seldom been as proud of a team in my time. They were different class.

"Jordan has made two mistakes and is distraught but others should have helped him - and it was never a sending off."

Rovers boss Barry Smith said: "Lewis is doing excellent.

"Getting that goal early in the second half settled us down and got us playing."

East Fife . 0 Queen's Park . .1

Gus MacPherson hailed Spiders for continuing to punch above their weight in League One.

Queen's recorded their first league win of the season with Ross Millen's second-half penalty separating the sides.

Chris Duggan, Greg Hurst and Paul Willis all had chances as the Fife men pressed. But Mark Hurst sliced down David Galt - following a short Mark Docherty pass back - to give Millen a chance to convert MacPherson said: "My players are fit and raised their game to the challenge."

Home boss Darren Young said: "A stupid pass back has cost us."

Stranraer3 Airdrieonians.. 1

Blues boss Stevie Farrell was blown away by his side's display as they defied a red card to claim an impressive victory.

Grant Anderson's double and a second-half Scott Agnew penalty were enough to see off the Diamonds, who had levelled at 1-1 through Willis Furtado.

And Farrell said: "Our first half display was as good a 45 minutes of attacking play seen at Stair Park in many a year."

Skipper Scott Robertson saw red in 71 minutes after a clash with Tom Fry. Airdrie interim coach Marc Fitzpatrick had earlier been sent to the stand.

Fitzpatrick said: "I let the players down."

Alloa Athletic..2 Forfar Athletic .1

Garry Bollan accused his Forfar side of disintegrating as they conceded two late goals to slump to the bottom of the table.

The Loons looked in control after Ousman See put them in front after 49 minutes.

But sloppy defending in the 86th minute allowed Kevin Cawley to equalise. And Forfar failed to clear their lines again in stoppage time as Kris Renton bagged his first for the club.

Bollan said: "It is a massive disappointment. The way we disintegrated at the end is very disappointing."

Alloa player-boss Jim Goodwin said: "We managed to grind out the result."

Arbroath . 1 Albion Rovers .. .4

Brian Kerr insists his sharpshooting Albion stars must begin homing in on victories after another golden away day.

Goals from Alan Trouten, Gary Fisher, Ross Perry and Connor Shields made it 11 in successive away wins over Arbroath, Forfar and Queen's Park. But they have failed to win in five home games. Kerr said: "We need to start doing it at home as we're aiming high."

Two goals in two minutes before the break from Trouten and Fisher put Rovers in control.

Perry made it 3-0 after 63 minutes and Kane Hester pulled one back before Shields made it four.
