Cowdenbeath 1-1 Airdrie Utd

Gregor Buchanan struck his first goal of the season as Airdrie United salvaged a draw at Cowdenbeath

In a half of few chances, Airdrie went close after 34 minutes through Josh Watt but his 12-yard effort was thwarted by the feet of goalkeeper Thomas Flynn.

Cowdenbeath's first shot in anger came four minutes into the second half through Greg Stewart who could only drag his shot wide when well placed and Airdrie's Ryan Donnelly flashed a 20-yard drive wide moments later.

Stewart made up for his earlier miss with 20 minutes to go, heading in a James Stevenson corner at the near post, but Airdrie equalised after 76 minutes when Buchanan planted his header high into the net from Marc Warren's free kick.
