Paul Hart: "Sometimes in desperation to get a result you just try to hang on. We have shown our desire and our determination to stay in this division.

"I could quite easily have pushed somebody - I could have opened up the game - so on that score I don't think you can blame the players but we decided to shore up and try to get a result.

"If you look at most of the game we had coped with everything and some of our performances were tremendous.

"David James was magnificent.

"It is very, very disappointing because going into the last minute in front you think you've cracked it. But if you had asked me before if I would have settled for a point I would have said yes.

"We are not shipping goals like we were, and goal difference could turn out to be important in the final reckoning."
