Dunfermline 0-0 Forfar Athletic

Gozie Ugwu missed a late penalty, as Dunfermline played out a goalless draw with the league leaders Forfar.

Dunfermline pressed early on with midfielder Andrew Stirling firing a long-range strike just over the crossbar.

Pars keeper Ryan Scully had to be alert to deny Gavin Swankie after the break.

The hosts were given a golden chance to take all three points when Stuart Malcolm handled, but substitute Ugwu's penalty was saved by Rob Douglas.
