Dunfermline 0 - 0 Raith Rovers: Fifers finish all square

For a game that had so many plus points for Dunfermline, they had to content themselves with only one in the end and ironically they ended up dropping another place down the Championship ladder. This was only the Pars’ second clean sheet of the season, but at the other end their normally prolific attack dried up as well, as this second Fife derby of the season ended in stalemate. Raith took 45 minutes to turn the ignition key and in the end were probably the happier with the outcome.
