Crystal Palace and Hull City played out a goalless draw at Selhurst Park.
Eagles keeper Julian Speroni kept another clean sheet as Palace maintained their nine game unbeaten run with yet another draw.
Jon Williams made his eagerly-awaited comeback from a broken leg, playing 71 minutes for the South Londoners.
Hull created the early running with Corry Evans and Josh King having shots on goal, while Palace's Chris Martin called Vito Mannone into action with a save.
Martin later crossed for Mile Jedinak who nodded over the bar and just before the break, Mannone did well to keep out Williams' effort.
In the second half, Palace were grateful to Speroni who thwarted Aaron Mclean's 25-yard drive and a strike from Tom Cairney.
The stalemate ended up being the seventh draw in nine matches for both clubs as Palace slip into the bottom half of the table.
