Airdrie and Brechin suffer home defeats in Ladbrokes League One

Airdrie missed the chance to close the gap on Ladbrokes League One leaders Livingston when they were beaten 2-1 by Albion Rovers.

Livingston lost to East Fife on Saturday but remain seven points clear thanks to two goals from Steven Boyd for Albion.

His first came in the 15th minute and, although Adam Brown equalised with a long-range effort nine minutes later, Boyd netted what proved to be the winner just before half-time.

Airdrie's loss opened the door for Brechin to climb into second place but they, too, suffered an unexpected home loss, beaten 1-0 by struggling Peterhead.

Rory McAllister headed in the only goal 13 minutes from time to give Peterhead their first win in six games.
