Airdrieonians 1-0 Brechin City

Airdrieonians dug in to see off a revitalised Brechin City in Scottish League One.

The Glebe Park side had responded to losing their first eight fixtures with a handy three-match unbeaten run, and troubled the hosts with early efforts.

Robert Thomson and Craig Molloy came close for the visitors.

However, just after the interval Liam Watt converted Taylor Morgan's cross to give Gary Bollan's side all three points.
