Airdrie had to come from behind to secure our heighest finish in the SPFL Scottish League 1. Finishing third means we have earned a play off and will face Alloa home and away, the opening match being Wed 10th May. We know our record in the play off matches but the way I'm looking at it, it's another two matches before we face a boring closed season with no World Cup or European Championships to enjoy.
Queens park opened the scoring through a fantastic strike by Dario Zanatta a screamer if ever there was one, it was against the run of play as Airdrie had most of the possession and a couple of half chances before Zanatta's goal. Airdrie finally broke the Queens Park defence down when Andy Ryan slotted home to score the gaol that may have made him top top scorer in the division.
Within minutes of the restart Andy Ryan scored his second after some fast wing play left him in front of goal 2-1 to the Diamonds. Queens Park weren't going to let the home team get it all there own way though when thier striker Kalvin Orsi scored Queens Parks second making it 2-2. It was Iain Russell who would secure the final three points of the season scoring a few minutes later.
Both teams had chances to score heading to the end of the game but the final score line 3-2.
Before I go any further yes it was a fix, yes I knew we would win 4 games 2-1, yes I knew that all I would need is 26 points to win the prediction league but no I don't know tonights lottery numbers :)
Once again I want to thank everyone who took the time to take part in the prediction league and much like like Airdries season it came down to the final day.
