Dundee and Kilmarnock played out a scoreless Scottish Premier League draw at Dens Park.

There was little in the way of chances in the first half, with conditions affecting the play.

Ross Barbour threatened with a long-range shot for Kilmarnock as the match entered its closing stages, Rab Douglas making the save.

And Dundee's Brian Easton was denied by Garry Hay's goal-line clearance in the 88th minute.

Dundee started brightly and Jim McAlister fired a blistering shot past Cammy Bell and high into the net from 25 yards, but Colin Nish was flagged offside.

Paul Heffernan tested Douglas with a low shot but the Dundee keeper sprang low to his right to claim the ball.

Heffernan forced another low stop from Douglas and John Baird's chest down was swept goalwards by Steven Milne, but Bell dived quickly to block the effort.

After the break, Baird connected sweetly to volley over the head of Bell, only to see his shot crack the post.

McAlister brought another good save from the Killie stopper with a blistering drive from the edge of the box but Bell stood up to the drive.

Much of the second half was played in strong wind with driving sleet and rain making pretty football impossible.

Dundee had claims for a penalty waved away in the 72nd minute. Reilly's cross from the left was heading towards Baird who went down with Jeroen Tesselaar in close attendance. However, referee John Beaton was unmoved.

As full-time approached, Barbour fired a searing drive forcing Douglas to spring to his right to parry the ball to safety.

Then Easton's powerful header seemed netbound but for the intervention of Hay to ensure a share of the points.
