Airdrieonians 2-0 Cowdenbeath

Marc Fitzpatrick's early goal and James Lister's late strike earned Airdrieonians a deserved win over Cowdenbeath in Scottish League One.

Fitzpatrick fired home from close range, finding the bottom left corner with his shot.

Declan McDaid's shot, which was fumbled by Neil Parry, was Cowden's only meaningful attempt on target.

Lister fired home in the 89th minute to secure a win as the Diamonds extended their unbeaten run in 2016.

Cowdenbeath, who have now lost three in a row, remain in relegation danger in eighth.
