Airdrieonians 5-1 Forfar Athletic

Airdrieonians boosted their survival hopes with a resounding victory over 10-man Forfar Athletic.

Keigan Parker's sweeping finish provided Airdrie's third before Forfar's Iain Campbell was dismissed for serious foul play.

Dale Hilson pulled a goal back for the visitors only for James Lister's header and Liam Watt's strike to complete the home side's rout.
