Dundee could not find a way past Raith Rovers at Dens Park

Dundee edged one point clear at the top of the Championship after a stalemate with Raith Rovers at Dens Park.

Rovers created the best chance of the first half when Joe Cardle's 18-yard shot was tipped away by Kyle Letheren.

And Letheren was called to action on the stroke of half-time as he dived low to turn away John Baird's effort.

Dundee improved after the interval, with Martin Boyle drawing a save from Lee Robinson and Ryan Conroy heading narrowly wide with 12 minutes to go.
