Airdrie United 0-1 Raith Rovers
SFL
Ten-man Raith Rovers put an end to 15 years without an opening-day win as Marvin Andrews' header gave them victory over Airdrie United.

In addition to his powerful 10th-minute header, Andrews made a goal-line clearance to keep out Stephen McKenna's fierce, 85th-minute 20-yard free-kick.

Raith had near misses themselves, with Steven Hislop hitting the crossbar.

But they had to cling on for victory after Graham Weir was sent off three minutes from time.
