Shota Arveladze was satisfied with a point after Hull City played out a goalless draw with Birmingham City.
The Tigers created the better chances at St Andrew’s, with Keane Lewis-Potter and Jacob Greaves denied by Blues keeper Neil Etheridge and Tom Eaves missing a good opening.
Lewis-Potter cleared Lyle Taylor’s deft header off the line but Matt Ingram’s goal was rarely threatened as City recorded a third clean sheet in four unbeaten away games.
“It could have been 1-1, it could have been 1-0," said the boss.
“It was a game where the team who scored the first one would maybe even have got a second or a third. The good thing is both teams tried to win.
“First half, we did well and could have scored. That was probably the reason they changed the system later before we had been better than them.
“In the second half, we dropped a little bit back, we didn’t hold the ball as long as we wish but we still created two clear chances to score.
“Greavesy had a really good chance, big Tom could have tapped it in.
“We gave them the ball a little bit (in the second half) and they’ve got players who can create. Generally, we deserved the point.”
