Carrick Rangers picked up their first point of the season with a scoreless draw at home to Dungannon Swifts.
After a fairly even opening to proceedings it was Dungannon's Michael Carvill who crafted the first chance with a header just wide after getting on the end of a ball into the box while, at the other end, Swifts keeper Sam Johnston got down low to hold onto a Jordan Gibson effort.
Indeed, Johnston denied Gibson during what was arguably the clearest opportunity of the first half right at the break when he saved with his legs after Gibson raced through on goal.
Carrick continued to press early in the second half with Dylan King needing to clear Reece Neale's corner from the right with Daniel Kelly then heading straight at Johnston.
And King made another clearance from the line just before the hour when Johnston dropped a Jonny Frazer free-kick upon which Kelly pounced.
Johnston's opposite number, Aaron Hogg, was forced into a double stop midway through the second half to thwart both Daniel Hughes and Rhyss Campbell.
As the game opened up Frazer saw efforts blocked by Kris Lowe and Callum Byers with around a quarter-of-an-hour remaining but, in the end, neither side managed to find a way through.
