Raith Rovers 0-0 Dumbarton

Raith Rovers halted a three-match losing streak as they played out a goalless draw against Dumbarton in the Championship match at Stark's Park.

The home side were unfortunate not to take the lead after a couple of chances from Mark Stewart and James Craigen.

Gregor Buchanan headed wide and Jamie Lindsay's shot was off target at the other end as the visitors responded.

Ross Callachan and Louis Longridge went close for Raith, while the Sons' Kevin Cawley had good chances in both halves.
