Dunfermline 1-1 Airdrie United


Second-placed Dunfermline missed an opportunity to gain ground on Division One leaders St Johnstone as they drew with bottom side Airdrie United.

The home side had conceded a surprise early goal thanks to a classy volley from Simon Lynch.

And, in a swift counterattack, Steven McDougall should have doubled Airdrie's lead minutes after Lynch's opener.

Rory Loy squeezed the equaliser under goalkeeper Lee Hollis after the break and both sides must further chances.
