Aston Villa manager Gerard Houllier admits the 1-1 draw against Fulham felt more like a defeat.
Cottagers centre-half Brede Hangeland rescued a point with a last-gasp equaliser for the hosts.
Marc Albrighton's 42nd-minute strike looked to have given Villa a vital win when he latched on to a sensational cross-field pass from Barry Bannan to finish in style.
But Hangeland rose highest to head home a free-kick from Danny Murphy with just seconds remaining.
Houllier told Sky Sports: "The atmosphere in the changing room was like we had lost because we didn't get the points which we felt we deserved today.
"I think we played well, we had chances before we scored and had we been a bit more clinical, I would say we would have won the game."
Villa's goal drought came to an end after 6 hours and 25 minutes of action and Houllier was pleased to have ended such a wait.
"The goal was great quality with young players involved. There were four players on the field who were aged 20 or under (Nathan Delfouneso, Barry Bannan, Marc Albrighton and Ciaran Clark).
"I'm disappointed with the result but not with the quality of the performance.
"With the effort and quality of the game, we deserved more than one point."
The Frenchman was quick to praise attacking midfielder Bannan, who produced an outstanding display.
"For his first senior game he did well. He came on against Birmingham at the end. The boy has lots of confidence, great skill and has an eye for a pass."
Houllier added he expects skipper Nigel Reo-Coker to be out of action for up to two or three weeks after the midfielder picked up a knee injury in a challenge with Fulham's Jonathan Greening.
