BRIGHTON, England (AP) - Premier League struggler Crystal Palace earned its first away point of the season with a 0-0 draw at Brighton on Tuesday.

Bottom of the table, Palace was 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 went closest for the visitors when they were thwarted 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, which has a game in hand. Brighton slipped to 10th in the standings.
