Hearts manager Jim Jefferies was frustrated after the goalless draw with Motherwell.
Hearts have only won once in their last six games after the draw which sealed the visitors' place in the top six of the SPL.
Jefferies said: "It just wouldn't settle around and about the box.
"The nearest we came was Craig Thomson's free-kick and the goalkeeper made the only real save of the game.
"It wasn't happening for us and it wasn't for lack of effort.
"We could've won it, but we could have lost it as well with them being very, very dangerous on the break. Every point is vital at this stage of the proceedings."
