Boston United joint-manager Jason Lee felt his side were the stronger team in the 0-0 draw with Nuneaton Town at York Street in Blue Square Bet North.
The Pilgrims came closest to breaking the deadlock but Leon Constantine's late effort was ruled out for offside.
Lee told BBC Lincolnshire: "From defence to midfield to the front three, we worked our socks off. We got what we deserved and we could have had more.
"From start to finish I thought we were by far the better team."
Boston tested Nuneaton keeper Danny Alcock throughout the match with Marc Newsham, Spencer Weir-Daley and Ian Ross all being denied, while at the other end Paul Bastock saved well from Danny Mitchley.
The Pilgrims eventually found the net when Alcock parried a Danny Sleath shot and Constantine tapped home, only to be denied by the assistant referee's flag.
"We created a lot of opportunities and the effort was there," said Lee. "I knew we would have opportunities to win the game and how Leon was given offside at the end I don't know.
"It would have been fitting for us to nick it at the end and we would have deserved it."
