Bristol City head coach Sean O'Driscoll was disappointed his team failed to keep a clean sheet against Tranmere at Prenton Park.
Liam Ridehalgh's first goal for Rovers four minutes before half-time cancelled out Sam Baldock's 14th-minute opener for City - the 1-1 draw extending both sides' unbeaten run to five games.
O'Driscoll said: "I thought we defended really well. I was disappointed to concede because once we scored I thought we looked really comfortable.
"If we'd have got to half-time a goal up I think we would have been okay.
"Credit to them, they put us under pressure and our goalkeeper didn't really have to make a save but theirs made a couple and on another day they could have gone in.
"I thought we were in control but once they equalised Tranmere got some momentum. I think we showed a different side to us because we didn't crumble and I didn't feel we would concede again.
"We got caught on the break a couple of times trying to get forward but we reacted really well and made it difficult for Tranmere to get a chance.
"I was pleased with our attitude and the organisation that we showed but we wanted a clean sheet."
