Ian Holloway felt his side grew in stature as the game progressed but was not so pleased with one of the referees decisions late in the game that saw Robbie Brady only given a yellow card for a foul on Wilfried Zaha.
"They said his touch went too far and rolled to the goalie, their fellow didn't play the ball and that ruined his touch.
"As we all know, he would have probably outpaced him, got past him and then that would have been a goalscoring opportunity. So it was all a bit strange."
After a first half of chances for the home side Holloway was pleased to be going into the break on level terms.
"They had the better of the first half. I felt we didn't get to grips with their shape and what they were doing.
"I'm relieved to be 0-0 at half-time and in the second half I thought the longer it went on, the more imposing we got. We looked pretty good as the game went on and that is full credit to the lads."
The boss may have been happy with a point but he wasn't happy his side had to make another journey north so soon after their trip to Yorkshire.
"It's a madness of a trip that we will now get back at 3am after coming up to Leeds at the weekend. That computer that does these games needs a right good volley!
"How can this be a midweek fixture? How can that be?"
