West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Mowbray was "bitterly disappointed" that his side conceded a late goal which meant his side had to settle for a share of the spoils at Ashton Gate.
Mowbray said: "It is infuriating to be two or three minutes from the end of the game and looking comfortable only to give away that late goal.
"But all credit to Bristol City, they kept going and you have to be respectful of where they are in the league.
"They are not there by accident but by hard work, endeavour and organisation and they kept going to get that late equaliser."
Mowbray said he was pleased with his keeper Dean Kiely who made some important saves but felt Robins keeper Adriano Basso had more of the work to do with a string of class saves.
"The bottom line is I am disappointed we didn't take all three points and obviously in the manner we conceded such a late goal leaves a sour taste in the mouth.
"But I am happy enough with our endeavour and our work rate.
"We have talked about needing a little bit of quality at times to finish a game off but I suppose it is progress that we are disappointed to only be taking a point off a team that are above us in the league."
Mowbray said he had picked the midfield he felt had the best chance of winning the game.
He said: "I thought the balance in mid-field was probably our best chance in this game."
And he was once again full of praise for his young loan star Ishmael Miller who came off the bench to set up the Albion goal.
Mowbray said: "He has pace and power and always looks a treat. At half time we had to get a bit of composure in the team that I think was needed and we then managed to string some more passes together.
"We could have got something from our last two away games and probably should have done but I am happy enough with the team who really competed in this game and showed great endeavour."
