Football - We were lucky - Davies

Hull captain Curtis Davies felt his side were lucky to pick up a point as they drew 0-0 with Stoke.

The game ended goalless at the KC Stadium after fine performances from both goalkeepers - Stoke's Asmir Begovic was impenetrable in the first half and Allan McGregor produced an even better display after the interval.

Central defender Davies did not attempt to paint the fixture as a classic of the genre but was pleased to make it just one defeat in eight matches at home.

He has been an ever-present as Hull have conceded just three goals in eight games at the KC - the best home record in the league - but admitted McGregor was key to their latest clean sheet.

'It was a boring game for TV, a 0-0 on a bobbly, windy pitch, but it's another point towards survival," Davies told Sky Sports.

"I thought we were lucky to get a point in the end. Allan McGregor saved us, he made a couple of great saves.

"We were making mistakes in the second half and they were capitalising and creating chances. Neither team looked like creating chances without mistakes."
