Derek Adams was satisfied with a point after Ross County fought back to claim a 1-1 draw at Dundee United.
Gary Mackay-Steven fired United ahead in the 52nd minute, but Richard Brittain's superb late strike gave County's SPL survival hopes a boost.
And Adams was glad that his side's attacking efforts were finally rewarded.
"It was nothing more than we deserved," he said. "I thought in the first half we dominated most of the play and passed the ball very well.
"Then Dundee United obviously scored against the run of the play which was hard to take. But it's always a good point coming to a place like Tannadice."
Goalscorer Brittain will join St Johnstone in the summer, but Adams hopes he can play a key role in the remaining months of this season.
"It was a very good strike from Richard Brittain," he said. "He's very capable of doing that. He's a big player for us.
"We've had other opportunities in the game to score I don't think both keepers were worked enough today.
"We lose Richard next season to St Johnstone, but until then we've got 16 games to go now which we'll focus fully on.
"We come to Tannadice and taken a point, won at St Mirren recently and won also at Hibs in our last three games away from home.
"We've now played 13 games away from home and only nine at home and we're just up from the First Division.
"We're having a terrific season and we've done exceptionally well here again. With the amount of games we have left, we know the number of points we need to get to stay in the SPL so it's up to us."
