Villa extended their unbeaten league run to three matches after playing out a dour draw at Hull.
A Gabby Agbonlahor shot, which was parried behind by home keeper Alan McGregor, was the closest either side came to a goal in a game which never sparked.
The Villa striker also hit a shot just wide of the post, while Andreas Weimann saw another effort blocked.
Hull’s efforts on goal were few and far between with Villa’s defence holding strong as the visitors recorded their first draw of the season.
Paul Lambert made two changes from the side which beat Manchester City 3-2, with the fit again Agbonlahor and Ashley Westwood returning. Nathan Baker and Yacouba Sylla both dropped to the bench as Villa reverted to a 4-3-3 formation.
Villa made a good start and Libor Kozak had the first effort of the game, but saw his shot from distance blocked by Maynor Figueroa.
Agbonlahor then shot over after a good spell of possession from the visitors – who were then indebted to Leandro Bacuna at the other end, as he dived in to cut out Danny Graham’s low cross and prevent a likely tap-in for the lurking Stephen Quinn.
Graham then looked certain to open the scoring from an inviting Ahmed Elmohamady centre, only for Villa skipper Ron Vlaar to get a vital touch at the last moment.
Agbonlahor forced the first real save of the game from McGregor at the other end with a left-footed shot which the Scottish keeper pushed behind for a corner. Hull were struggling to clear their lines at times and Weimann saw a shot blocked and then couldn’t capitalise soon after when McGregor dropped a long ball at the feet of the striker.
But both sides were struggling to generate prolonged spells of pressure and the next shot on goal didn’t arrive until stoppage time, when Tom Huddlestone drove straight at Guzan from 20 yards out after Bacuna had half-cleared an Elmohamady cross.
Agbonlahor should have put Villa ahead within ten minutes of the restart but put a first time shot wide of the post from Weimann’s pull back, after an excellent run by Bacuna down the right flank.
The latter then shot wide following a quick Villa counter from a Hull free-kick which almost crept past everybody until Vlaar cleared.
There was a lack of pace to the game though Karim El Ahmadi briefly raised the tempo with a shot from dist ance straight at McGregor, before having another effort from closer range blocked.
Elmohamady, who had been Hull’s main threat, then drove a shot wide from the edge of the box.
Lambert introduced Jordan Bowery and Aleksander Tonev in hope of finding the winner and Fabian Delph saw a shot blocked behind.
McGregor saved low down from El Ahmadi and Tonev struck a shot across the face of goal in stoppage time, before Curtis Davies headed wide for the hosts.
Villa boss Paul Lambert said: "Neither side deserved to win, we had the lion's share in the first half which is good away from home.
"We kept the ball for too long and had no cutting edge but never thought we would lose.
"We take each game in merit, Hull have started the season well so it was good to get a point today.
"They sit very deep so their isn't much space in behind their defence.
Gabby Agbonlahor and Ashley Westwood played 75 minutes today and Lambert said he was pleased to see them back after only training on Thursday.
"Reality is we are three points off third. I'd rather see the positives than the negatives so a point is good for us today."
