Arbroath 0-1 Airdrieonians

Airdrieonians edged out League One relegation rivals Arbroath in an ill-tempered game that ended with each team down to 10 men at Gayfield.

The only goal came when James Lister rose highest to head home Caolan McAleer's corner kick on the hour.

McAleer was shown a straight red card soon after for a challenge on Michael Travis.

And Richard Little levelled things up when he saw red for his challenge on Lister deep into stoppage time.
