Explaining the display to Sky Sports, Allardyce said: "
Really good organization, a team trying their very best to nullify the best team in this league at their own pitch, and what a fantastic job they did
"It's all about staying in the game when you come here, not allowing too much.
"The resilience of the side allowed us to get up the pitch more in the second half, to pass the ball better in the second half which ultimately resulted in one fantastic chance for Grant, who unfortunately didn't quite take it, but Semi came up and fired in a fantastic header which gave us a point today.
"We're not the most constructive in terms of the amount of goals we score, that's obvious to see, so goals are precious to us.
"The lads have showed a lot of grit, determination, organization and team spirit at a difficult place. I've seen the players telling me that they really want to stay in this division."
