Dunfermline Athletic 0-1 Airdrieonians

Caolan McAleer's first goal of the season gave bottom side Airdrieonians a surprise victory against second-place Dunfermline in Scottish League One.

The Pars started well and Ryan Williamson's strike stung the palms of Airdrie goalkeeper Grant Adam.

McAleer found space to hammer the ball into the top corner in the 19th minute.

The hosts came close to levelling when Allan Smith hit the post and team-mate Jordan Moore fired wide in the second half.
