Neither side was able to claim what would have been an important three points in the relegation battle as East Fife drew with Airdrie.

An uninspiring first half saw neither goalkeeper tested, with most of the efforts from long range and off target.

The second half started well, with Liam Buchanan's chance to give East Fife the lead, but he scuffed his shot and did not trouble keeper Greg Paterson.

Paterson made up for an earlier error, saving well from a Jamie Bain effort.
