Karl Darlow believed Leeds and Nottingham Forest ‘cancelled each other out’ at Elland Road yesterday.
The two in-form sides played out a 0-0 draw in front of a healthy crowd in West Yorkshire.
And Darlow was pleased with how rarely he was tested.
He said: “Chances were few and far between and I think the teams cancelled each other out.
“I didn’t have too much to do - a couple of saves. I’m obviously happy with a clean sheet and it’s a good point away.
“The defence was solid again. I thought we looked very organised, we just couldn’t get the breakthrough at the other end.
“Away from home you’ve got to protect the point a bit more than we would do at home. We were still going for it, but we’ll take a point going into Wednesday’s game against Rotherham, and hopefully take three points there.”
A midweek win over the Millers would help Forest’s late play-off push, with eight points now separating them from sixth place.
And Darlow is refusing to rule out the possibility of extending Forest’s season.
He said: “There are nine games left and mathematically we are still in with a shout. Hopefully we can build some momentum and maybe nick it right at the death.
“We need to make sure we take as many points as we can before the international break.”
