Football - Black Cats deny Swans in stalemate

Titus Bramble denied wanted man Danny Graham an injury-time winner as Sunderland and Swansea played out a goalless stalemate.

Defender Bramble blocked a shot from Graham, Black Cats' boss Martin O'Neill's prime target for what remains of the winter transfer window, in the third minute of stoppage time to rescue a point.

The 27-year-old had been booed by sections of the home fans as he was introduced as a 74th-minute replacement for Leon Britton, but his reception as he left the pitch might have been even more virulent had Bramble not intervened.
