Sunderland dominated the game but failed to break West Brom down as Ben Foster made some crucial saves for Albion in a 0-0 draw.
The hosts managed to keep a clean sheet for the first time in 17 league games but boss Sam Allardyce will be disappointed they couldn’t take all three points against the Baggies at the Stadium of Light.
Foster was the key man for the visitors and was called into action on 33 minutes as the keeper made a smart stop to deny Lee Cattermole.
Fabio Borini should have broken the deadlock just after the hour mark when he latched on to a cross inside the area but he couldn’t get his effort on target.
Foster managed to keep out another Borini effort with around five minutes to go and the Albion stopper then made a fantastic save on 90 minutes when Jermain Defoe seemed certain to score after creating space for a shot inside the area.
Sunderland thought they’d grabbed a winner in injury time but substitute Dame N’Doye’s effort was correctly ruled out for offside.
