Bristol City and Watford extended their undefeated championship runs to four games each after a goalless draw at Ashton Gate.
The Hornets controlled the first half without testing home goalkeeper Daniel Bentley – Craig Cathcart headed the best opening at the back post after James Garner’s cross.
Vladimir Ivic’s visitors, who didn’t have three unnamed players who tested positive for coronavirus, eased in the second half when the city’s striker Antoine Semenyo was most likely to cause something to happen.
His low cross was tipped out of the way of Famara Diedhiou by Watford keeper Ben Foster before the 20-year-old was bent wide from a tight angle, and Foster was re-used in added time to counter Tommy Rowe’s worn-out attempt to discard.
The point leaves Dean Holden’s Robins in third place, three points behind leader Norwich, and Watford in fifth place.
While it was a decent clock, it took 74 minutes for the game’s first shot on goal to come off when Bentley blocked Domingos Quina’s clean strike after a mistake by city defender Jay Dasilva.
But it was a half-chance match between two teams occupying play-off spots, with the home team conceding a third consecutive clean sheet.
Watford have only lost once in their last 12 trips to Bristol City despite their three Covid-19 players being self-isolating and also missing their next two games against Preston and Nottingham Forest.
