Airdrieonians 0 - 3 Stenhousemuir

Smith at the double

Gary Smith celebrated the extension of his loan deal at Stenhousemuir with a brace in a 3-0 defeat of Airdrie.

The Warriors flew out of the blocks as Sean Dickson drilled a Jamie Campbell cross past Grant Adam in the fourth minute.

Campbell was again the architect early in the second half, playing in Smith who coolly slotted home when one-on-one to double the lead.

Airdrie failed to carve out any clear-cut opportunities, striker Sean Lynch being restricted to long-range efforts that never threatened the goal.

The scoreline was given the gloss Stenhousemuir deserved when Smith again showed a cool head to despatch Brown Ferguson's pass into the bottom corner.

Graeme Owens hit the bar late on for Airdrie with a sumptuous volley but it was too little too late for The Diamonds.

MacDonald out of Warriors clash

Airdrie will be missing Cameron MacDonald through suspension for their clash with Stenhousemuir

The Diamonds are looking for the win that will pull them level with the Warriors in the race for a promotion play-off place in Division Two.

Midfielder Fraser Keast misses out with an ankle injury for a game that Airdrie boss Jimmy Boyle thinks will only be won through hard graft.

Boyle said: "We defeated Stenhousemuir at our place 5-2 earlier in the season and I have heard talk of them being weakened because of a couple of sending offs last week but I am not interested in these things.

"This would be a great game to win as they are above us in the table but the only way we can pull alongside them is through working as hard as we can."

Stenhousemuir will be without suspended duo Ross McMillan and Kevin McKinlay.

The pair both received red cards against Dumbarton last weekend, while the Warriors are further weakened as the experienced pair of defender Martyn Corrigan and winger Stevie Murray are both ruled out through knocks.

However assistant manager Kevin McGoldrick tried to remain positive.

He said: "Despite a recent run of disappointing results we are still in a promotion play-off place and we intend to stay there.

"We are a bit low on numbers, however, other people now have the opportunity to show that they can play a part in getting us a win at a difficult venue.

"We have not beaten Airdrie this season and this would be a great time to put that right."
