Raith Rovers stretched their advantage at the top with a come-from-behind 2-1 win over Ayr United at Stark’s Park.

Lawrence Shankland broke the deadlock in first-half injury-time to give Ayr the lead. But Lewis Vaughan equalised five minutes into the second half, netting for the 10th successive game, and Jason Thomson then scored his first of the season to put Raith in front. Ayr’s misery was complete when Chris Higgins was sent off with three minutes left.

Albion Rovers enjoyed a 4-1 win at Arbroath who had the lion’s share of possession in the first half but Rovers struck two quick goals just before half-time.

Kane Hester pulled a goal back and Shields made it 4-1 with 15 minutes remaining.
