Airdrieonians 1-3 East Fife

Airdrieonians remain five points adrift at the bottom of Scottish League One after losing at home to East Fife.

The match started positively for the hosts with Lewis Coult slotting home following Liam Watt's threaded through ball.

But Gregor Buchanan's own goal levelled the match again before half-time.

The Fifers took control in the second half with Ross Brown converting Stephen Hughes' pass to put them ahead and then Hughes scored with a free-kick.
