Result: Falkirk six behind Rangers after Queen of the South draw

Falkirk hold Queen of the South to a goalless draw to reduce Rangers' lead at the top of the Scottish Championship to six points for the time being.

Falkirk have managed to keep a clean sheet and move three points ahead of third-placed Hibernian after a goalless draw with Queen of the South.

The Bairns conceded seven against Ross County in the League Cup in midweek, but were able to repel the Doonhamers to move six behind Scottish Championship leaders Rangers.

In a cagey first half, Derek Lyle tried to give the visitors the lead as he fashioned space to shoot only to drag his shot wide.

Falkirk came close to breaking the deadlock themselves before the interval when Bob McHugh's strike from the edge of the box flew narrowly off-target.

After David Smith smashed a shot over the bar on 66 minutes, Falkirk could have snatched a late winner when Mark Kerr pulled his effort inches wide of Robbie Thomson's goal.

However, both side were forced to settle for a draw, which sees Falkirk increase their advantage over Hibs, while Rangers are six ahead of the Bairns after their perfect start to the season.
