Queen of the South and Ayr play out goalless draw

Queen of the South and Ayr will both take their long winless records into 2017 after a goalless draw at Palmerston Park.
The hosts are now 13 games since their last league victory, while Ayr have not won in nine Championship outings.
Gary Harkins and Alan Forrest were narrowly off target early on for Ayr, who then hit the crossbar through Daryll Meggatt after 20 minutes.
Stephen Dobbie threatened either side of half-time for Queen of the South and then brought a parry from Greg Fleming after an hour.
Darren Brownlie saw a header go over the bar as the hosts pushed for a winning goal late on, but in truth a stalemate was always the likely outcome.
