Airdrieonians climbed to second spot in League One after a hard fought win over Falkirk earned them a fifth win on the spin.A strike from skipper Callum Fordyce and a composed finish from Hearts loanee Scott McGill, rounding off a terrific move, had the Diamonds in command after an outstanding opening 45 minutes.The Bairns pulled one back through Brad McKay's header after 47 minutes before Airdrie substitute Calum Gallagher poked the ball in at the near post for 3-1 with four minutes remaining.Airdrie were made to sweat for the three points though when Anton Dowds turned home a corner in the 89th minute, but the hosts held out for the victory.There was some silky football on display as confidence continues to course through Ian Muray's men, who haven't lost since a December 7 defeat away to Montrose, and they are now eight points behind leaders Cove Rangers with a game in hand.Montrose lost on the road to Cove and that allowed the Diamonds to leapfrog them in the standings going into next week's break from league action for the Scottish Cup fourth round.The Diamonds made one enforced change from last week’s 3-0 win over East Fife.

Loan midfielder Kerr McInroy has returned to Celtic so he was replaced in the side by Scott Walker.Falkirk named the same team that beat Dumbarton 6-2 last week, a result which gave the Bairns their first win since November, and Diamonds fans will have spotted a familiar face in the starting 11 with ex-Airdrie star Leon McCann on the left wing.Airdrie started brightly with their clean, crisp passing causing problems for the Bairns and they were first to threaten when Easton robbed Craig McGuffie of possession in the middle of the park.
