HULL, England (AP) — Goalkeepers Asmir Begovic and Allan McGregor ensured a goalless draw between Hull and Stoke at the KC Stadium on Saturday with a point serving both sides well enough in their attempt to move further away from the Premier League's relegation zone.

Begovic kept Hull out with good saves from Ahmed Elmohamady and Yannick Sagbo before the break and Hull 'keeper McGregor twice prevented Peter Crouch from scoring in the last half hour.

McGregor's first save from Crouch — a one-handed stop from just a couple of yards — gave Stephen Ireland a chance but his tap home was flagged offside.

Ryan Shawcross headed against the crossbar but Hull held out and now boasts the best home defensive record in the division, with just three goals conceded in eight games.
