Everton boss David Moyes admitted his frustration after his side were held to a goalless draw at Wolves.
The Toffees spurned a number of good chances that would have lifted them level with Aston Villa and Merseyside rivals Liverpool in the Barclays Premier League. Yet Wolves enjoyed plenty of possession, had a few opportunities themselves and merited a point from a feisty encounter.
Moyes said: "We missed an opportunity to get another two points but it was another clean sheet and I don't think we played badly. We created a lot of opportunities but didn't finish them off."
He added: "We had two or three good opportunities in the first 10 minutes and I thought overall we were the most likely to get a goal.
"Certainly defensively we did a good job. Kevin Doyle was in good form and we kept him really quiet.
"I expected a scrap but overall I thought we defended well and limited Wolves to very few, or no, opportunities and created quite a lot ourselves."
Hull's victory against Fulham means Wanderers are now just five points above the relegation zone but manager Mick McCarthy was happy to take a draw.
McCarthy said: "I'm delighted with a point, I'd have taken that before we started. They are as good as anything that has been here.
"There was more chance of it being none than three, so I'll take my point. I'm absolutely thrilled with it.
"It has been workmanlike, full of desire, effort and honesty. While we have that we will always have a chance. We have our moments of quality and we will certainly battle it out with everybody."
