Notts County manager John Sheridan admitted he was disappointed to see a 'good performance' go unrewarded against Luton Town this afternoon.
The Magpies were held 0-0 at home by the fourth-placed Hatters, missing a penalty late on before Carl Dickinson crashed a header off the crossbar.
And, while he was pleased with the overall performance of his team, Sheridan wasn't satisfied with the result.
He said: "I’m really disappointed we haven’t come out of the game with the three points.
"In the second half we had them on the back foot. We really pushed on and showed the desire to win the game.
"We kept going and weren’t satisfied with just getting a draw - we wanted to get the win and get closer to the teams at the top. We had a good go today and it would have been a massive bonus to win.
"We got the break with the penalty. I don’t blame anyone, if you miss a penalty you miss a penalty, but if we’d have scored that we’d have gone on and won the game.
"I think the fans were top drawer today and it’s a crying shame we didn’t get the three points."
Sheridan can see the bigger picture, however.
He said: "We stuck together and we will need that throughout the season. If we play like that we will win more than we lose and it was a good workout for the players against a top team.
