Falkirk stayed top of Division One with a convincing victory away to Airdrie.
A wonderful Russell Latapy volley cannoned in off the post after only seven minutes to put the Bairns ahead.
Airdrie pressed but faced an inspired Allan Ferguson and were hit on the break when Andy Thomson turned to fire home after a flick from Kevin James.
Owen Coyle pulled one back for Airdrie after the break, but Andy Lawrie slotted home from close range after good play by Thomson and Darryl Duffy.
