Cowdenbeath 0-0 Dunfermline Athletic

The league's runaway top scorers Dunfermline were subdued by Cowdenbeath in a goalless draw at Central Park.

Colin Nish's hosts reacted to the effort as if it were a victory, as the strugglers superbly shut out the side scoring at a rate of more than three a game this season.

David Hopkirk missed two early chances for the Pars and Marc McAusland's header was cleared off the line.

Joe Cardle was a constant threat but Dunfermline could not break through.
