Dunfermline denied top spot by Peterhead
Dunfermline missed the chance to go top of Scottish League One after being held to a goalless draw by Peterhead at East End Park.
Leighton Mcintosh, who scored when Peterhead beat Dunfermline 2-1 in August, came close to giving his side an 11th-minute lead but his effort hit a post.
Pars keeper Sean Murdoch then made a fine stop to deny Jordon Brown before Mickael Antoine-Curier wildly lashed an opening high and wide for the home side.
In the closing stages, Peterhead keeper Graeme Smith ensured his side a share of the spoils with an excellent stop from Ryan Wallace's 30-yard free-kick.
A second successive goalless draw leaves the Pars a point behind Ayr while Peterhead are now without an away win in six.
