Crystal Palace were held to a goalless draw by Premier League newcomers Brentford.
Patrick Viera’s men started the brighter of the sides with debutant Conor Gallagher hitting the woodwork in the early stages.
Skipper James McArthur then had a strike from the edge of the area repelled by Bees keeper David Raya in the second half.
Brentford almost broke the deadlock when Bryan Mbeumo’s free-kick from the right hit the top of the bar.
However, a lack of cutting edge cost Palace in the end but they now have a point on the board after this scrappy encounter.
