Cowdenbeath slipped into the Scottish Championship's bottom two places after a goalless draw at Dumbarton.

Both sides hit the frame of the goal in their pursuit of a breakthrough.

The hosts almost took the lead when Jordan Kirkpatrick crashed a volley against the bar and Mark Gilhaney was denied by visiting keeper Thomas Flynn.

Cowden's James Stevenson fired against the post in the second half, as did Dumbarton's Mitchel Megginson, who had also fired wide in the first half.
