Airdrieonians 2-1 East Fife

Airdrieonians clinched survival with two games remaining after beating East Fife at the Excelsior stadium.

Caolan McAleer put the Honest Men into an early second-half lead when he tucked past Paterson at his near post.

East Fife defender Steve Campbell soon put the sides level again, nestling his header into the top corner of the Airdrieonians goal.

But James Lister fired a crucial winner for the home side late on to secure their status in League One.
