CARDIFF, Wales (AP) Cardiff couldn't repeat its stunning win from last week and held on for a point in a 0-0 draw against Everton in the Premier League on Saturday.

Kevin Miralles came closest to giving Everton a first win of the season but wasted two good chances, while David Marshall saved a deflected header from Nikica Jelavic. The visitors also unsuccessfully appealed for a penalty in the first half at Cardiff City Stadium for a challenge on defender Leighton Baines.

Fraizer Campbell, who scored two goals for Cardiff in the 3-2 win over Manchester City last week, was largely quiet, and he mistakenly broke up what could have been his team's best chance when he intercepted a throughball meant for Peter Whittingham.

Everton's first three matches of the season have all ended in draws.
