Competition: Ladbrokes League 1 Referee: Mr Gavin Duncan
Venue: Penny Cars Stadium Attendance: 717

After a weeks enforced break following the postponement of the Forfar game we got back into action at the Excelsior Stadium.
There were a few changes to the side which had lost to Stranraer with Jack Beaumont making his first start along with new signing Kieran Gibbons and Declan McDaid who had made his debut from the bench in the 2-0 defeat.
Lewis Milne and Declan Hughes dropped to the bench while Liam Callaghan missed out completely due to injury.
The Diamonds took the lead with 14 minutes gone when a Lithgow throw in was laid off by Lister which created space for Marc FITZPATRICK to chip a left footed shot past Adam.
There after it was a game of few chances with Airdrie content to sit on their lead and hit on the break.
Eight minutes from the interval Caldwell fired in a shot which was cleared by the home defence.
A minute into the second half Fitzpatrick tried his luck with an overhead kick which was held by Adam and a minute later he set up Lister who sent his shot wide of target.
At the other end home keeper Parry was alert to collect a Donaldson cross at his near post.
Just short of the hour a Bain shot was blocked by Scullion with Watt sending the rebound over the bar.
Johnston then saw a low driven cross from the right saved by Parry as we looked to get back on level terms.
As we moved into the closing stages McDaid was denied by Parry who chested his 20 yard shot before the danger was cleared by Crighton.
However with just a minute remaining the Diamonds got a second goal when the ball broke up field and Mackin slid the ball to Jim Lister who drilled the ball low past Adam.
