BOURNEMOUTH, England (AP) — Bournemouth wasted numerous chances in a 0-0 draw at home to Leicester in an English Premier League match between two struggling teams on Saturday.

The home side was denied a penalty early on when a handball from Leicester right back Danny Simpson, which sent Marc Pugh's goal-bound shot wide, went unpunished.

Jermain Defoe struck the underside of the crossbar with a shot and Pugh blasted over the bar from eight meters with Bournemouth's best opportunities.

The draw left Bournemouth next to last and Leicester one place outside the relegation zone. Both sides have won just once in their opening seven league matches.
