They had taken the lead in the first half through Kurtis Roberts before Declan McManus hit back for the home side. Gallagher would have his moment at the end though.

From a long shy, he was able to head the winner beyond Robbie Mutch and secure three points for his side. In the wake of this fixture, Gallagher has applauded the Airdrie support.

“It was good (to score a late winner), especially after such a tough game,” Gallagher said following the 2-1 triumph.

“It was stuffy and energetic, hectic at times, but everyone was sprinting and buzzing about. It was one of those games where you’d already put your all in plus a little extra 20%, so to come up with the goods is really enjoyable.

“The fans were outstanding from the start. That’s almost been a reaction to the performances. The first couple of months of the season we didn’t give them much to cheer about.

“But over the past two or three weeks, we’ve heard them get louder and louder. The end was a wee magical moment for us and we need to use this and take it forward.”
