Ayr United 0-1 Airdrieonians

Marc Fitzpatrick scored the only goal as Airdrieonians recorded a narrow victory over 10-man Ayr United.

Ayr went down to 10 men in the first half when Adam Blakeman was sent off for serious foul play.

The visitors had opportunities to break the deadlock in the opening period but could not make their numerical advantage count.

However, Fitzpatrick swept the ball past goalkeeper David Hutton early in the second period.
