LONDON (AP) West Ham was held to a 0-0 draw at home by last-place Sunderland in the Premier League on Saturday, and it was the visitors who came closest to leaving with the full three points.

The Hammers struggled to create any chances of note in a poor game at Upton Park and they remain outside of the league's relegation zone by just a point.

Sunderland defender Phil Bardsley came closest to finding a winner with a long-range strike that came back off the woodwork toward the end of the first half.

Gus Poyet's side need to start picking up wins but has not scored away from home in the league since Aug. 31.
