Andy King said Leicester City would have taken a point from their clash with play-off rivals Crystal Palace before the game.
However, the midfielder, who scored City's first equaliser in the 2-2 draw, confessed the players were disappointed they had not claimed all three points after twice coming from behind against Ian Holloway's side, and creating some good chances to win.
"I think it was a good point and we probably would have taken it," said King.
"But having played the way we did, we probably deserved all three having gone behind twice and come back.
"We had the better of the chances so we are a bit disappointed.
"I thought we played fairly well, especially having gone behind like we have done quite a bit recently, but the boys showed the courage to come back.
"To do it twice at a tough place and against a team that is above us in the league is great. We are playing some good stuff at the moment.
"It is frustrating that we are giving ourselves uphill battles. It is a lot tougher then.
"We are a better team when we score first. That is something we have to work on.
"But we played some good stuff and we have two big games coming up, so let's see what happens after that."
King's cool finish was his first in 11 games, but he said he had not lost any confidence.
"I have scored a lot of goals for Leicester and people know I am confident in front of goal," he said.
"It is just nice to get one because it has been a while since I scored. But, most importantly, it was about the team getting back to 1-1 and looking to kick on for all three.
"It didn't happen but it was a vital goal for the team."
The point, coupled with Bolton's victory against Middlesbrough, saw City drop out of the Championship top six.
King believes City must now win both their final games to make it into the play-offs, starting with Friday's visit of Watford to the King Power Stadium.
"The next two games are both must-win games," he said. "We have to take that form into those.
"It is a must-win for us if we are to have any chance of getting that sixth spot.
"We have to win the game and everyone in the dressing room knows that. We will be working hard ready for Friday."
