A double from striker Andy Thompson helped Falkirk to a comprehensive win over Airdrie United.
Thompson side-footed the opener from Davie Nicholls' pass and the midfielder added the second from 20 yards.
Defender Andy Lawrie hooked home the third before Nicholls' superb pass put midfielder Russell Latapy clear to blast high into the roof of the net.
Thompson completed the scoring with a diving header from John O'Neil's cross but missed a chance for a hat-trick.
