Match report
A dismal performance by the home side and a deserved win for Airdries foreign legion. The first half produced few moments of note and neither goalkeeper was greatly troubled. In 24 minutes a Ross Tokely deep cross from the right beat Sanchez Broto but came off the bar. Richard Hastings was stretchered off after 33 minutes with knee ligament damage and this meant defensive reorganisation. On the stroke of half time Les Fridge beat out an angled shot from Austin McCann and Ross Tokely completed the clearance. The second half belonged to Airdrie and they took the lead in 48 minutes. Stuart Golabek conceded a penalty when he brought down David Fernandez. McCann took the penalty but hit the bar. It fell to Darren Brady who also hit the bar but Fernandez was at the back post to score. Three minutes later a run by Fernandez down the left caught the defence by surprise and he passed infield to the unmarked John Elliott. Elliott drew Fridge and netted easily. Caley Thistle put some pressure on Airdrie but nothing came of it. On the hour mark Martin Bavidge sent a good ball into the box but Iain Stewart and Paul Sheerin were crowded out. In 72 minutes Stewart hit a low cross across goal and Bavidge sent in a glancing header which was cleared. His follow up shot was also booted away. A minute later Broto punched out a Sheerin cross. A Davide Xausa blocked shot in 83 minutes was the only other Caley Thistle effort of note and Airdrie easily held on to win.
