Peterhead 0-0 Dunfermline Athletic

Dunfermline Athletic failed to win in League One for the first time since November as Peterhead held the league leaders to a goalless stalemate.

The Pars' Faissal El Bakhtaoui wasted a great chance when through on goal.

Then Sean Murdoch was called into action for the visitors, saving a fine effort from range by Jamie Stevenson.

Shane Sutherland saw an effort saved low down by Graeme Smith as Dunfermline's lead over Ayr United was cut to seven points.
