Match ends, Dunfermline Athletic 0, Morton 0.
Dunfermline Athletic and Greenock Morton struggled against the wind and driving snow in a goalless draw that did little for their promotion hopes.
Morton goalkeeper Derek Gaston did well to save a first-minute effort from Nicky Clark and Morton's Jack Iredale had a good effort before the break.
The Pars' Declan McManus went close and Gaston did well to save Kallum Higginbotham's 20-yard drive.
Tom Beadling was denied by the Morton bar and Daniel Armstrong by a post.
But the Pars could not make the breakthrough and have now not beaten Morton in five meetings this season.
It leaves Dunfermline four points behind the fourth-top visitors with a game in hand, while the Ton are a point behind Dundee United having played three more games than the Tannadice side.
