Jamie McCluskey did his chances of earning a contract no harm with the opener in Forfar's win at Airdrie.

The 25-year-old started as a trialist as he continued his recovery from a serious achilles injury and, after 13 minutes, he finished from close range after Dale Hilson's ball in.

Liam Coogans passed up the home side's best opportunities as they looked to get off the bottom of the table.

Ross Campbell sealed the three points in stoppage time from the penalty spot.
