Airdrieonians 0-1 Forfar Athletic

Forfar Athletic began their Scottish League One campaign with a narrow victory over hosts Airdrieonians.

A very early headed goal by Chris Templeman, who met Danny Denholm's cross, proved to be the difference.

Bryan Hodge had several chances to added to the visitors' lead but could not find the net.

Bryan Prunty and Alain Lithgow were wayward for Airdrie as their second defeat in all competitions this season.
