Queen of the South and Airdrie played out a dour goalless draw marked by a lack of creativity from both sides.
Both sets of forwards conspired to waste the few chances they had.
The two teams demonstrated why they are not challenging for honours in Division One this season.
Airdrie had the better of the play but Queens' defence held firm to earn a point that leaves them still hovering on the edge of the relegation zone.
