Danny Wilson said the point gained from Sheffield United's 1-1 draw at Colchester could prove significant at the end of the season.
The Blades strengthened their grip on second place in League One and lie two points ahead of Sheffield Wednesday after Will Hoskins' first-half opener was cancelled out in style by Colchester striker Steven Gillespie just after the break.
Wilson said: "We're disappointed in the goal we conceded, but not by the finish, because it was a magnificent finish.
"We had the lion's share of possession and got into some good positions, but we haven't tested them enough, if I'm quite honest. But this could be a very good point for us come the end of the season, who knows."
Wilson added: "If you said to us we'd be in second place like this at the end of the season, we'd more than gladly take it.
"But we still have a lot of work to do - we're two points in front [of Sheffield Wednesday] but that can be turned around pretty quickly."
