"We got a great goal and at that stage, I thought we'd win it.
"JJ had a great chance but, young and inexperienced player that he is, he fumbled the opportunity.
"It was a great opportunity for us to go 2-0 up and game over, although he got into a great position but then, within a minute, they had equalised after a ricochet that could have spun anywhere.
"After that, it just see-sawed. We were fortunate at the end as we don't practice back-headers onto the bar, but it didn't go in.
"Neither side deserved to lose, but both sides could have won. It was played in a great spirit and at great pace and it's a point away from home and it's better than nothing.
"We've no complaints about the game ending honours even."
"He (Marsden) had two cracking chances and if he'd had hair, I think we would have won the game as it skidded off his head both times.
"But it was great. I loved it, I loved the football, I loved the game and I loved the atmosphere.
"The teams showed each other so much respect, there were no bookings and the referee was excellent and there's not a bad word to say about the game.
"It's the game I've enjoyed most as a manager, in terms of excitement and feeling good about the game.
"We've had better results and beat Arsenal 3-2 recently but the excitement wasn't the same."
