Dunfermline Athletic 0-0 Brechin City

Craig Molloy nearly put the visitors into an early lead, but his long-range shot was plucked out of the air by stopper Ryan Scully.

Ross Forbes fired a chance over the bar for the Pars and Michael Moffat pulled a shot wide before the break.

Faissal El Bakhtaoui and Lewis Spence had efforts saved while Robert Thomson hit the post late on for Brechin.
