"I'm disappointed we didn't capitalise," said Smith. "But it's difficult to get behind a team who sit on the edge of the area.
"We could have maybe looked for other routes but it's difficult when they have everyone back. But credit Tottenham - they defended well."
Glenn was not the only won to question referee Elleray’s decision making, Smith was disappointed that Niclas Alexandersson’s effort was cancelled out before half-time.
"I'm aggrieved we had a goal disallowed. The ref must be the only one in the stadium who saw an infringement. He said there was a push but wasn't quite sure who the push was from - so if he wasn't sure he shouldn't have blown.
"I felt we played well in the first half, we created a number of opportunities but I'm disappointed to lose the goal just before half-time."
Alexandersson added: "It's a bit disappointing at home when they are two men down not to win the game - we played almost better when it was 11 against 11. I think our last ball was a bit poor, we never got good delivery into the box - but they made it difficult for us with nine behind the ball."
"I couldn't see anything wrong with the situation," said the Swede on his ruled-out effort.
"I asked the referee and he said I pushed one - but that can't be true because I wasn't near anyone, so it's a bit disappointing. The game had almost everything. We really were up for it in the first half but it feels a bit like two points lost rather than a point gained."
Everton manager Walter Smith revealed his frustration after watching his side fail to break down a resolute Spurs rearguard.
