NORWICH, United Kingdom (AFP) - Norwich and Fulham laboured to a 0-0 stalemate in an uninspiring Premier League clash at Carrow Road on Saturday.

The draw extended the Canaries' poor league run to nine games without a victory, leaving Chris Hughton's side in 14th spot while Martin Jol's Fulham remain in 12th position.

New Norwich signing Luciano Becchio, in for injured captain Grant Holt who suffered a back spasm on the morning of the game, headed a couple of half-chances wide.

Even the return of Dimitar Berbatov from a hamstring injury could not inspire Fulham, with a 25-yard effort from Steve Sidwell at the start of the second half about the best of the visitors' few chances.
