Dunfermline Ath 0-0 Forfar Ath

Dunfermline Athletic guaranteed a second-place finish in Scottish League One despite only managing a draw with Forfar Athletic.

It was their second straight game without scoring but, with third-place Stranraer losing to Arbroath, the Pars can no longer be overtaken.

In a first half of few chances, Lewis Martin headed wide for the hosts and Allan Smith missed close range.

Dale Hilson's superb shot for the visitors drifted wide after the break.
