Clyde 1-0 Airdrie United


Clyde substitute Alan Trouten's strike was enough to see off Division One basement side Airdrie and secure the Bully Wee's third straight league win.

Airdrie went close with a Simon Lynch volley while Willie McLaren almost gave the Bully Wee a first-half lead.

Ruari MacLennan was sent off for Clyde two minutes after the restart for a two-footed lunge at Bobby Donnelly.

Victory saw Clyde move up to seventh spot in the table, while Airdrie remain rooted to the bottom, five points behind ninth-placed Morton.
