Airdrieonians 2-1 Brechin City

Airdrieonians climbed off the bottom of Scottish League One with victory over Brechin City.

Brechin's Andy Jackson hit the post before Robert Thomson gave the visitors the lead on the quarter-hour.

But the hosts responded quickly with Ross Gilmour tucking a low shot past goalkeeper Graeme Smith.

And Airdrie snatched victory in the final minute of regulation time, Lewis Coult heading home Caolan McAleer's cross.
