Michael Duff believed that if his Cheltenham Town side had managed to build on their first half opener then they could have nicked three points on the road at Port Vale.
Alex Addai's seventh goal of the season handed Duff's men the lead at Vale Park and the forward then saw former Robins goalkeeper Scott Brown deny him a second, while Gavin Reilly came inches away from adding to the advantage.
Vale hit back before half time when the dangerous David Amoo saw his cross turned into his own net by the unfortunate Ben Tozer and it proved crucial in both sides sharing the points.
"I'm slightly frustrated that we couldn't get the second goal," Duff said.
"I thought after a slow start we grew into the game quite well and cut them open numerous times.
"It's sort of where we're at, we're just teetering, being resilient and hard to beat but probably just not quite doing enough.
"Today was a case of not getting the second goal but even at the end I turned to John (Askey) with about five minutes to go and said there would be a winner - I just don't know which one it's going to be.
"It was a good game of football, I know that."
