Airdrieonians advanced in the Scottish League Cup after coming back from two down to beat Stenhousemuir.

Goals by Sean Dickson and Darren Smith put the visitors in command before David Sinclair pulled one back.

Airdrie's Chris O'Neil and Stenny's Eddie Malone were sent off following an off the ball incident and Nathan Blockley's effort levelled the scores.

Goals by Mick O'Byrne and Lewis Coult gave the hosts a two-goal lead before Ross McMillan netted a consolation.
