RED hot striker Craig Moore bulged the net for the 25th time this season to maintain Ayr United's title charge and then set his sights on landing the title.

Moore, whose late penalty gave the Honest Men a hard-fought 3-2 victory against East Fife, stressed it's results more than performances which count at this critical stage of the season.

United remain three points clear of Raith Rovers but with a far better goal difference as they face Airdrieonians away on Saturday.

There are just four games remaining in a hugely exciting title chase.

Moore said: "We made it hard for ourselves but at this stage of the season it doesn't matter how we get the three points as long as we get them. We started well and scored a great first goal but made a silly mistake to let them back into it. We were a little flat but it shows the togetherness that we have in the dressing room to get those three points.

"All we want is that trophy if we win that league. Myself and Lawrence (Shankland) are chipping in with goals, if I scored a hat-trick or he did I wouldn't have cared. You can see how much it means to the fans when we win game. When we got the winner they ran on to the park. Hopefully we will get there and I can hit 30 goals but it's the league and if I go two to three games without scoring and we get the three points it's better than myself scoring."

The target man says the players are keeping their feet firmly on the ground and added: "We want to win the league. The mood is good, we are keeping level headed, we know we have three points on Raith but again you must say focused and take it game by game - there are four to go and there's a big prize at the end of the season. We must take three points every game."

McCall took a lot of positives from the win and said: "We have won a lot of games comfortably but the ones I am proudest of are Arbroath, Albion Rovers and now East Fife away. I just always feel we can score.

"We gave away two daft goals but Craig Reid was the hero and an unbelievable block to stop it going 3-1 when were a bit in shock. I felt that Craig McGuffie did well and Michael Moffat added something, we got the winner and deserved to win.

"We have worked our socks off to get a position that it's about what we do and with four games to go it's about what we do. The fans were terrific again and were definitely the 12th man."
