Forfar Athletic 2-3 Airdrieonians

Airdrieonians ensured Forfar Athletic's miserable recent run continued after withstanding a fight-back from the home side to claim victory at Station Park.

Airdrie were 3-0 up inside half-an-hour, Liam Watt and Nicky Cadden scoring before Cadden turned provider for Marc Fitzpatrick.

On-loan Hibernian teenager Scott Martin threatened to turn the game around for Forfar with a brace.

However, it proved not enough to prevent the home side from defeat.
