England - Premier League strugglers Crystal Palace earned their first away point of the season with a goalless draw at Brighton on Tuesday.

Bottom of the table, Palace were unable to make a breakthrough as the team's search for a first league goal on the road since April continues.

Christian Benteke and Wilfried Zaha were both denied in quick succession by a superb double save from goalkeeper Mat Ryan, while Brighton striker Glenn Murray had a late header blocked on the line by Andros Townsend.

Palace, under former England manager Roy Hodgson, is level on nine points with 19th-place Swansea City, who have a game in hand.

Brighton slipped to 10th in the standings.
