Honours even as Seagulls and Palace make point in survival bid

Brighton 0-0 Crystal Palace

By Ed Elliott

Premier League strugglers Crystal Palace picked up their first away point of the season with a goalless draw at bitter rivals Brighton.

Roy Hodgson's bottom-of-the-table Eagles edged a tight contest at a sold-out Amex Stadium but they were unable to make a breakthrough.

Christian Benteke and Wilfried Zaha went closest for Palace when they were thwarted in quick succession by a superb double save from Albion goalkeeper Mat Ryan, while Brighton striker Glenn Murray had a late header blocked on the line by Andros Townsend.

After a lacklustre opening Palace were denied a 15th-minute lead by Ryan's tremendous reflexes. The Australian international dived to his right to keep out Benkete's initial stabbed effort before impressively getting up to stop Zaha's follow-up.

Brighton responded immediately. Seagulls defender Lewis Dunk rose highest to meet Pascal Gross' right-wing corner but his powerful header was too close to Palace keeper Wayne Hennessey.

Albion had only won one of their last seven meetings with Palace in all competitions and they almost went ahead when central midfielder Stephens flashed a long-range shot wide of the left post with 18 minutes to play. However, neither side could muster up the quality to find a winner and it ended goalless.
