Kevin Bond declared Monday's goalless draw at Liverpool as 'a good point'.

Point taken - Kevin

After an even first hour where neither side really carved out a clear-cut opportunity, the home side started to get on top, forcing us on the back foot in front of the Kop.

Martin Kelly drew a fine save from Brad Friedel and Andy Carroll had a couple of chances, blazing the best over the bar from 10 yards.

Despite Liverpool's territorial advantage, we had the best chance to win when Niko Kranjcar sent Gareth Bale clear, only for Pepe Reina to save one-on-one.

Luis Suarez made his return from the bench in the 66th minute and the stage was set for him to grab the headlines, but he headed straight at Brad from close range three minutes from time.

The draw stretched our current run to two defeats in 22 matches in the Premier League.

"They made us defend for our lives at times, especially in the second half and we did that really well," said assistant boss Kevin.

"The players all put their bodies on the line, the centre-halves, Scott Parker, they all did a great job for us.

"We didn't create as many chances as we would have liked to, in all honesty, but then again we had the best chance of the game.

"I was just waiting for the linesman to put his flag up. He didn't, and in fairness to the goalkeeper he stood up well.

"It wasn't to be and in the end it was a draw was probably a fair result."
