Airdrieonians 0-1 Ayr United

Anthony Marenghi struck with a superb free-kick as 10-man Ayr United secured a third straight win.

In a tight first half, Airdrieonians keeper Scott Gallacher dealt with a 30-yard Scott McLaughlin free-kick when a Marenghi set-piece hit the bar.

Martin Hardie blasted a solid effort from 25 yards which forced Ayr's David Hutton to make a fine save.

Marenghi fired in the only goal of the game from a free-kick, although Kyle McAusland was later red-carded.
