CALUM WOODS was one of the few to earn the praise of boss Lee Clark as Huddersfield Town were held 2-2 at home to Leyton Orient.
But the 24-year-old close-season recruit, who made his fourth consecutive appearance at left-back, said the outcome of the Galpharm clash took the gloss of any plaudits.
“It’s not about individual performances – it’s about the team, and we were all disappointed to have led 2-0 and not won the match,” said the ex-Dunfermline player, whose second-half yellow card for pulling back George Porter left him just one more caution off a one-match suspension.
Porter was also involved in the incident which brought Jamie McCombe a straight red card, after which Orient struck twice.
But Woods insisted: “We’re gutted to have conceded two goals in the way we did, and we know we should have done better in the closing stages.”
It was a second stalemate running for Town after the 1-1 draw at MK Dons and Woods added: “We’ve dropped rather than gained points over the last two games.
“We know we have to work hard this week and ensure we’re fully prepared to get back to winning ways at Brentford this Saturday.”
While Town are eighth in League I, it was only a third point of the season for Orient, who remain bottom.
Boss Russell Slade, whose injury problems meant he named only four rather than the five permitted substitutes, said: “All afternoon I felt we deserved something out of the game.
“Even in the first period I thought we created one or two wonderful opportunities for an away side.
“Fair play to the lads, we stuck to our guns, we kept going and we got something for it.”
Meanwhile Ipswich were watching Town for the third match running.
After manager Paul Jewell saw the 3-0 win at Sheffield United and 1-1 draw at MK Dons, the Championship club had scout Mike Gillies on duty at the Galpharm on Saturday.
