Sunderland and Swansea settle for a point

SUNDERLAND, England (AP) Swansea had to settle for a 0-0 draw at Sunderland in the Premier League on Tuesday after Danny Graham was denied a stoppage-time winner for the visitors.

Graham was handed a golden opportunity from close range but his shot was blocked by Sunderland's substitute defender Titus Bramble. Minutes earlier, Swansea midfielder Nathan Dyer had passed up a clear chance when he fired wide with the goal at his mercy.

In a classic game of two halves, the visitors failed to make the most of their dominance during the opening 45 minutes, while Sunderland was equally unable to capitalize on a much-improved display after the break.

Both sides remain mid-table, with Swansea moving up to eighth and Sunderland in 11th place.
