“It was quite a close game – we were both sussing each other out and making it difficult.

“Overall it was one of those games where you look at it and go: ‘Was it two points dropped? Or was it a good point?’

“If you look at the end, it’s probably a good point for us to keep that unbeaten run going. What I was really pleased about was the reaction and the intensity that we continued to believe that we were going to get something at the end of the game.

“I was really pleased to get that equaliser in injury time, however, we could have actually nicked it at the end.

“It’s a fair point.”
