WACKY singing fan Somerset Boab reckons Andy Geggan was answering his call when he nodded Ayr to victory.
Geggan celebrated with a zany touchline jig after his downward header dumped the Bairns.
But Boab, whose songs Hampden Anthem and The Moff's on Fire were internet hits, was pulling the strings.
Boab revealed: "I was on Facebook earlier with Andy and asked him to do 'The Boabie' if and when he scored.
"He duly delivered – nice piece of psychology by me. I asked my 5000 friends to press 'like' if they wanted him to do 'The Boabie' and 82 did.
"It was great to see him not only score then do 'The Boabie' with Moff but it actually won the game."
Geggan admitted: "I had a good feeling all day I would score. Boab Facebooked me in the morning and said make sure you watch Hampden Anthem so I’d know how to celebrate.
"Six goals is the most I have ever scored and hopefully there are more to come. There is a lot more confidence in the team and we can push on. We are grinding out well, pressing well and playing good football."
Ayr were heroes all with everyone digging deep.
There was a scare in 72 minutes when Willie Gibson thundered a 30 yard drive off the post. But Ayr dashed upfield to grab the winner two minutes later.Michael McGowan swung over a corner and Geggan rose to nod home.
Happy boss Brian Reid said: "It's another brave battling performance from the same 11 who are being asked to do it two times a week.
"Every game is massive. We have lost four big players but the effort and commitment from a patched-up squad is second to none.”
