Dunfermline missed an opportunity to put pressure on leaders Raith after they were held to a goalless draw by Partick.
The visitors dominated the first half with Kris Doolan spurning two great opportunities.
The Pars were the better team in the second half, but a series of long-range efforts went wide of the mark.
Doolan tested Pars keeper Chris Smith but the keeper held on to the striker's effort from distance.
