Michael Duff was pleased that his team secured a point from their final outing in League One this season at the end of a record breaking campaign for the club.
Alfie May scored the second of two goals in second half stoppage time to ensure the final day trip to Cambridge United ended in a 2-2 draw.
The result confirms that Cheltenham end the League One season 15th - the club's highest ever finish.
He felt there was plenty of entertainment on show, but that the 90 minutes lacked quality, as his team were forced to come from behind after Will Boyle was also sent off in the closing stages of the afternoon.
"I don't think we deserved to go out losing three games in a row with the last three performances," he said.
"I wasn't particularly pleased with the performance. I was pleased with the result.
"We were actually better with 10 men. We went down to 10 men and started passing the ball which is the weird thing with football.
"We weren't clean enough and plans didn't really come out. When we did we got in.
"It's a bit of a strange feeling. It's an end of the season day - nice weather, two mid-table teams, and I thought it was quite an entertaining game. I'm not sure how much quality there was in it."
