Grant McCann was satisfied with a point as Hull City played out a 1-1 draw with Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.
Reece Burke gave the Tigers a 13th-minute lead but Aiden McGeady equalised eight minutes later.
“It’s a good point away from home,” said McCann.
“It’s been a disruptive two weeks for us in terms of players we haven’t had available, the Covid situation, and trying to get them back up to speed.
“I thought tonight our defensive shape and organisation were excellent.
“We limited Sunderland to one lapse of concentration from us in the first half.
“In the second half, some balls flashed across our goal but we defended manfully.
“We had the best chances in the game – the chances Tom had in the first half that didn’t go in.
“The boys are heartened by the point.
“We’ve followed up the three points against Charlton against another team that are probably going to be in and around that top six come the end of the season.
“We’re disappointed we didn’t win the game because we felt as if we had the better chances, but we’ll take the point.”
