Queen of the South 0-0 Ross County

Scottish Football League

Ross County remained three points clear at the top of the Scottish First Division despite drawing with bottom club Queen of the South.

Kevin Holt missed a gilt-edged chance for Queens, heading Nicky Clark's corner over from close range.

County goalkeeper Michael Fraser saved Tom Brighton's header before the break and then blocked Clark's shot in the second half.

Michael Gardyne, who has agreed to join Dundee United for next season, drillied wide as the visitors threatened and team-mate Steven Craig forced a save from Lee Robinson.

Robinson was alert to deny Grant Munro near the end as both sides were forced to settle for a point.
