After the win at Stenhousemuir four days previously we went down to another heavy defeat at Somerset Park.
Greig Spence and Aldin El Zubaidi were both missing from the squad which made the trip to Ayrshire with Pat Scullion and Kenny Adamson returning to the starting line up.
Ayr posed problems for us early in the match and Roman had to be on the alert to mop up efforts from Moore and Trouten.
Then in 15 minutes the home side took the lead when Ross McCRORIE was in the perfect spot to head home after he found space in front of Roman at a corner.
Two minutes later we went two down when no defender was able to stop Ryan STEVENSON firing the ball home from the middle of the box.
Beaumont and Caldwell tested Greg Fleming in the home goal but in 37 minutes the visiting rearguard was caught out again when Craig MOORE slipped in number three when unmarked after a Gilmour cross.
Donaldson replaced Byrne for the second period and his appearance allowed Brett to move further forward and we started to give Ayr problems and they pulled one back through Declan HUGHES with a fine finish which flew high into the net.
Ayr were a bit stunned and suddenly not finding it easy at all to control things and we twice came close to a second through Caldwell and Brett.
But just as visiting fans felt their team could really get back into the match a fourth goal with less than 15 minutes to go from all of 25 yards by STEVENSON ended the game as a contest.
