Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock was proud of his players after the stalemate with play off contenders Sheffield United.
Warnock is a Blades fan and is backing them to win the play-offs after they just missed out on the second automatic spot following Birmingham's victory over Reading.
Warnock told the press conferance: 'When I was told about Birmingham winning there was some relief as this result then didn't matter.
'I will get right behind them now for the play-offs and hopefully they can go and finish the job off at Wembley.
'While I am tinged with being a Blade, it was solely a manager's job I had to do. But it wasn't easy for me. I shook Kevin's hand before the game and told him that I wanted to win.
'We couldn't manage that, but we competed really well and had some good chances to score. I couldn't have asked for anything more from my players.'
United manager Kevin Blackwell said: 'You need breaks in these games and we just didn't get them - Speroni made save after save.
'He was the man of the match with three unbelievable saves, and then of course we hit the post. We needed something to go our way and it just didn't happen for us.
'I feel we had two good shouts for penalties for fouls on Darius Henderson, but we didn't get them.
'If I could take anything away from Crystal Palace it would be Lady Luck. I'd put her in the boot of the car and hope that she can rear her head in the play-offs when you need it.
'It was a massive pressure game and they didn't buckle, they just kept going. I can't complain about the display at all and now we just need to reproduce that in the play-offs.'
