Rochdale boss Keith Hill was content with a point following his side's 1-1 home draw against promotion rivals Burton.
A goalkeeping blunder by Brewers goalkeeper Rob Lainton handed promotion rivals Rochdale a share of the spoils.
Lainton spilled a tame George Donnelly shot over the goalline midway through the second half with Burton leading courtesy of Zeli Ismail's 34th-minute goal.
"It's a point gained, a massive point against our promotion rivals. All the pressure was on us, so it was a huge point for us," said Hill, whose side remain fourth in the table, level on points with Oxford, who occupy the final automatic promotion slot.
"We had to move the ball quicker in the first half but we didn't and they scored and I just thought that was it - 1-0 to Burton. But we played better in the second half, we started creating the space between their back four and the midfield and we started to get Scott Hogan in behind.
"When I changed to a two-man midfield it opened things up, I don't know whether they were trying to push for the winning goal - I think they were trying to land on the winning goal - and we left ourselves vulnerable at time. But they were only playing with one up front, so it was worth us taking a gamble to try and win it."
