Airdrieonians 5-1 Forfar Athletic

Airdrieonians boosted their survival hopes with a resounding victory over 10-man Forfar Athletic.

Gregor Buchanan headed the hosts ahead and Jamie Bain netted their second.

Keigan Parker's sweeping finish provided Airdrie's third before Forfar's Iain Campbell was dismissed for serious foul play.

Dale Hilson pulled a goal back for the visitors only for James Lister's header and Liam Watt's strike to complete the home side's rout.
