In a way the result suits both teams with 1st sitting reasonably safely away from the bottom having cemented their position with another point.

FC, on the other hand, are just above the bottom team, but Paul Hines says theynmay prefer to go down after losing several players at the start of the season. The point may just keep them down there.

There were several goal scoring opportunities, but a mixture of weak finishing and good goalkeeping at both ends made sure a scoreless draw was always on the cards.
