SPL wrap: Goalless draw leaves Hibs fourth

Created on 28 Jan., 2013 2:58 AM GMT

Niall McGinn missed a penalty for Aberdeen as they played out a 0-0 with Hibernian at Pittodrie Stadium on Sunday.

In the only highlight of what was a dour affair, Hibs keeper Ben Williams got down sharply to his right to push away McGinn's 10th-minute penalty with Aberdeen unable to find a way for the rest of the match through despite piling on the pressure.

The result leaves Hibs in fourth place on the table, three points away from a Europa League place while Aberdeen stay two points behind them in fifth.

The day's other game also failed to produce any goals as bottom-placed Dundee drew 0-0 with Kilmarnock.

Killie were the dominant side throughout the encounter with Dundee left to rely on the brilliance of goalkeeper Rab Douglas to earn a point.

The draw will do nothing to ease Dundee's relegation fears with Barry Smith's side 11 points from safety. Kilmarnock, meanwhile, drop to eighth on the table on 29 points.
