Airdrie Utd 5-2 Stenhousemuir

Scottish Football League

Airdrie United overcame a second-half comeback by Stenhousemuir to run out comforable winners in Division Two.

Strikes by Ryan Donnelly and Paul Lovering and a header from John Boyle gave the hosts a 3-0 half-time lead.

But Colin Hamilton's header and Stewart Kean's drilled shot brought Stenny back into contention.

Donnelly's second and Nathan Blockley's effort stretched Airdrie's advantage before the hosts' David Lilley was dismissed for a professional foul.
