Match ends, Airdrieonians 2, Morton 1.
Airdrie continued their fine form by beating league leaders Morton.
They took the lead when Bryan Prunty was picked out by Jordan Morton before lobbing Derek Gaston.
Liam Lindsay almost made it two as he headed against a post but Nathan Blockley made no mistake soon after, driving to the edge of the area before firing past Gaston.
Jamie McCluskey scored from six yards in stoppage time but it was too little too late.
Airdrie had chanced their luck before their goals with Andy McNeil preventing Patrick Boyle from putting through his own net before Stefan McCluskey somehow blazed over from Mark Russell's cross.
The result hands Morton a second successive defeat, although Stranraer's loss sees them remain top of the table on goal difference from Forfar.
