Following the 0-0 draw at home to Inverness Caley Thistle, Manager Peter Grant was delighted to achieve another clean sheet, and pleased that the individual errors that had cost the team in previous games appeared to have been eliminated.
There was disappointment that opportunities should have been taken especially in the first half. Owain Fôn Williams made a couple of important saves in the second half and Dunfermline ended the match hanging on, having to defend several corners late in the game.
