Stranraer kept a clean sheet for just the third time this season in a stalemate at Stenhousemuir.
The visitors could have moved to within a point of their opponents with a win and were the first side to threaten as Christopher Aitken's free-kick was headed wide by Frank McKeown from close range.
Kevin McKinlay blazed over for the home side after 35 minutes while Ryan Borris' curling effort was well held by Callum Reidford at the other end.
In the second half Stewart Kean failed to hit the target with his effort from 12 yards out while Ross McMillan headed over from close range.
With time running out, Kean tried his luck from the left but his curling effort was easily held by David Mitchell.
