Sam Allardyce´s FA Cup hopes remain alive after the beleaguered Newcastle boss saw his side survive a torrid second-half spell in the goalless draw with Championship battlers Stoke to earn a replay.

A joint goal-line clearance by Steven Taylor and Abdoulaye Faye denied Jon Parkin a certain goal before Shay Given stuck out a hand to keep out Richard Cresswell´s point-blank volley.

Although they had been the better side before half-time, even with Michael Owen in their starting line-up, the Magpies failed to create much and Stoke looked the more likely winners by the end.
