Airdrie United 0-3 Cowdenbeath

Visitors Cowdenbeath claimed a comfortable victory against 10-man Airdrie United.

Kyle Miller broke the deadlock for Cowden and he was joined on the scoresheet by Lewis Coult and Marc McKenzie after United had Marc Warren sent off.

Miller slotted home Scott Linton's cross after only five minutes to give the visitors the lead. Coult then saw his attempt to double the Blue Brazil's advantage blocked before it could trouble United keeper Kenny Arthur.

Cowden were awarded a penalty midway through the first half but again the away side failed to make their dominance count as McKenzie's spot-kick was saved by Arthur.

Airdrie's problems were compounded after the restart when Warren was sent off for violent conduct, with Coult and McKenzie both scoring from close range late on to make sure of the points.
