Manager Mark Hughes accepted that his Manchester City side had missed a good opportunity to secure victory away to FC Copenhagen in the first leg of their UEFA Cup round of 32 tie.
The Citizens conceded a last-minute equaliser in the snowbound Parken Stadion, having twice taken the lead through Nedum Onuoha and Stephen Ireland.
Hughes said after the game: "We have allowed them back in right at the death and it is a little bit hard to take.
"We certainly had the chances to put the tie beyond Copenhagen, but I think beforehand we would have taken a positive result with away goals.
"As it is we are still in good shape for the second leg and hopefully we will get the job done.
"I was really pleased with our attitude and anticipation of situations. We were a threat on the break."
