Dundee were held by Falkirk in the Development League. The Dark Blues were looking to build on last week’s 4-1 victory against St Mirren, and named a strong starting 11 that featured the likes of Nicky Low and Faissal El Bakhtaoui. Despite the strong line up, neither the Dees or the Bairns could break the deadlock as the game ended 0-0.
Ian Smith saw his effort from 25 yards out narrowly miss the net before Falkirk’s Nathan Austin brought a good save out of Kyle Gourlay. Nicky Low’s quick free kick found Faissal El Bakhtaoui after 17 minutes, but the striker was denied by Falkirk keeper Deniz Mehmet.
Mehmet was called into action six minutes later to deny Yordi Teijse. The Dutchman got on the end of Conor Quigley’s cross, but saw his looping header clawed away from the top corner by Mehmet.
Falkirk nearly went ahead three minutes before the break. Scott Shepherd teed up Nathan Austin, but the former East Fife striker’s effort flashed wide of the post.
