Airdrieonians 2-0 Dunfermline Athletic

Airdrieonians opened up a three-point gap between themselves and the relegation play-off spot with victory over high-flying Dunfermline.

The hosts took the lead when Keigan Parker expertly curled in a free-kick from 20 yards after Caolan McAleer had been fouled by Callum Morris.

Ross Forbes' spectacular 35-yard shot was tipped over by Airdrie's Grant Adam in the second half.

And James Lister's strike wrapped up the points for the home side late on.
