Michael Dunlop’s winner 17 minutes from time earned ROVERS a 1-0 victory over Ayr and gave them their first three points since February 23.
Having not won any of their previous eight contests, Dunlop’s second-half volley finally brought some cheer to a club fifth in the table.
The visitors almost went ahead prior to the interval through Ross Davidson, whose shot following a well-worked free-kick routine was just wide of the post.
Dunlop’s strike after the break proved to be the difference as he collected a header back to him from Scott McBride before finding the net with a volley.
It meant a fourth defeat in five for Ayr, who sit third in the division ahead of the final three fixtures. Some great photographs HERE of the match.
