Gary Rowett felt a point was the least his Burton side deserved after their last-gasp 1-1 draw at Torquay in League Two on Saturday.
Brewers striker Calvin Zola netted his fourth goal in three games after Zander Diamond's header came back off the post at Plainmoor.
Torquay took an 11th minute lead through their own in-form target man Rene Howe, who converted his fifth goal of the season after latching on to Nathan Craig's left-wing cross at the far post and side footing home.
"We were very disappointed to go 1-0 down," said Rowett.
"But after the first five minutes we were dominant in the game. We had all the chances but it was really pleasing in the end to get something out of the game because I feel we completely deserved it.
"To go and get the goal at the end was excellent and we might have nicked it after that, but maybe that was being a bit greedy. It was almost the perfect away performance."
