Airdrie 1-0 St Johnstone
Veteran French striker Jerome Vareille grabbed the winner five minutes from time for Airdrie United.

St Johnstone, many people's title favourites, dominated the first half, Mark McGeown producing a fine save to stop Paul Sheerin's goalbound header.

Airdrie rallied after the break and should have gone into the lead when Scott Wilson headed wide a cross from Mark Roberts.

But it was the Second Division champions who secured the victory.
