Everton manager David Moyes was frustrated by his side's inability to take their chances in the 1-1 draw with Birmingham City at Goodison Park.
An early Diniyar Bilyaletdinov strike gave the Toffees a perfect start, but the visitors drew level midway through the first half and then proved hard to break down.
Moyes stated:"I'm frustrated because we had opportunities in a game which I feel we were in control of and should have won.
"I didn't think Louis Saha's disallowed goal would be the turning point at the time because I thought we were dominating the game and playing so well we'd go on and score more goals
"I thought our play was fine, but I thought in the final third we were wasteful in our final pass and finish.
"I thought they were really resilient. They're on a good run and they went up the pitch once and got a goal.
"They earned that because they worked really hard to stay in the game and we have not been quite good enough to break them down."
