Points shared in stalemate

Published Add your comment

England rivals Jermain Defoe and Michael Owen both missed chances as Portsmouth and Newcastle fought out a goalless draw at Fratton Park.

Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp, who was offered the St James´ Park job last January before Kevin Keegan´s comeback, saw Defoe hang his head after passing up a hat-trick of golden opportunities.

And Owen, whose recovery from long-term injury has helped inspire Keegan´s side to an unbeaten five-match run, hooked over the bar with only David James to beat in the 72nd minute.
