Cowdenbeath 0-0 Arbroath

Scottish Football League

The Scottish Division Two's top two played out a goaless draw as Cowdenbeath and Arbroath struggled in difficult conditions.

There were only a handful of shots as neither goalkeeper had a save to make until the last five minutes on a pitch which passed a late inspection.

Josh Falkingham had three long-range efforts for Arbroath that all missed the target while Marc McKenzie had two similar pot-shots for Cowdenbeath.

The only save of the match came with three minutes to go, as Kieran McAnespie got his head on the end of a Gavin Swankie free-kick, but Thomas Flynn punched away in the Cowdenbeath goal.

The close-range header was the closest the match came to a goal, as both sides seemed more than happy to settle for a point in a dour affair.
