BOB Faulkner paid tribute to his battling Solihull Moors side despite failing to pick up maximum points against Hyde at Damson Park.
The tough talking boss was pleased with the performance on Saturday and felt that his team were good for the three points.
But again chances went begging and Moors were forced to settle for a point.
“I thought we had won the game until their lad (Nicky Clee) popped in a cracker which I’m sure won’t happen very often this season,” he said.
“It’s unfortunate because we couldn’t really do anything about both the goals because the first one was a stroke of luck.
“That’s why I think we should take heart out of this game, and try to keep building from the result.
“We’ve picked up a point so we’ll keep going and try and get a win next time out.”
Moors moved out of the Blue Square North relegation zone after the draw and Faulkner believes if his side continue to play like they have in recent weeks then they will soon move up the table.
“The lads have been under a bit of pressure so it was good to put in a positive performance.
“I was pleased with the way they played and on any other day we would be talking about a win.
“Jake Edwards was a little bit off the pace but Jason Moore made up for it with a good display.
“He led the line well and he took his goal brilliantly.
“There were a lot of positives that came out of the game such as Jake Sedgemore successfully coming unscathed, and Mark Gardner making his debut.”
