Airdrieonians 0-2 Brechin City

Brechin continued their bid to avoid relegation from Scottish League One with a win over Airdrieonians.

David Cox and Jim Lister missed early chances for Airdrie, and Andrew Jackson found the bottom corner for City.

The away side doubled their lead in stunning fashion when midfielder Lewis Spence took aim from 30 yards to scoop the ball over Neil Parry.

It was the visitors' fourth successive league win to put them within two points of safety.
