Raith Rovers 0-0 Falkirk

Raith Rovers missed the chance to go second in the Scottish Championship after being held by Falkirk.

Falkirk's Owain Tudur Jones had a 20-yard effort and Raith's Martin Scott saw his close-range effort deflected over in the first half.

Laurie Ellis was off target with a close-range header as the hosts tried to force the opener.

And Jason Thomson also lacked accuracy when his rasping drive failed to trouble Bairns keeper Jamie MacDonald.
