Livingston moved 10 points clear at the top of Scottish League One after beating Airdrieonians.

Livi's 2-0 win over their nearest challengers came courtesy of goals from Dale Carrick and Nicky Cadden.

Brechin City moved above Alloa Athletic and to within a point of second place by beating Stranraer, with the Wasps drawing with Queen's Park.

East Fife won Barry Smith's first match in charge against Peterhead and bottom side Stenhousemuir beat Albion Rovers.

Carrick's shot gave Livi an early lead at home to the Diamonds and Cadden's late strike sealed the win for David Hopkin's side.

At Glebe Park, Ally Love fired Brechin ahead on the quarter-hour and that lead was doubled by Connor McLennan's free-kick before half-time.

Stranraer had Steven Bell sent off in the second half for two bookings.

Queen's Park went ahead away to Alloa through Ross Millen's 62nd-minute shot, but the hosts were level within seven minutes through Greig Spence's strike.

The Fifers moved out of the bottom two after scoring two second-half goals against Peterhead, Jason Kerr then Kevin O'Hara firing in.

Smith's side were replaced in ninth by Stranraer, who are only two points ahead of Stenny.

Willis Furtado's strike gave the Ochilview side a narrow home win.
