Airdrieonians 3-0 Dunfermline Athletic

Airdrieonians maintained their promotion play-off hopes with victory over League One champions Dunfermline.

Marc Fitzpatrick headed in Nicky Cadden's right-wing corner for Airdrie's early opener.

Dunfermline's David Hopkirk hit the bar with a deft chip before Dylan Mackin struck the hosts' second.

James Lister then headed home Cadden's cross and Kieran MacDonald came close to adding to Airdrie's lead after the break.
