John Lundstram felt the Blades deserved all three points from Saturday's clash with Birmingham City at Bramall Lane.
Leon Clarke's 13th of the season in the second-half cancelled out Jérémie Boga's opener, but it was the Blades who dominated much of the game.
And Lundstram admitted there was a disappointment after the stalemate, remarking: "I thought we deserved more in the end, we came off the pitch feeling like we'd lost the game.
"That's a good sign I suppose, we were applauded off the pitch again and the fans can see we're giving it everything to try and win the game, but unfortunately it wasn't to be.
"It's credit to us that teams like Birmingham are coming set for a point if they can get one. We went about our business positively, enjoyed plenty of the ball, but we just couldn't get what would have been a decisive second goal.
"If we keep playing like we are then the points will continue to stack up."
Speaking after a second consecutive 90 minutes in the Blades engine room, the former Oxford skipper added: "I am happy to be in the team, but sad to be in there in such circumstances and at the expense of Paul (Coutts) who is a massive loss to the team.
"I've got big boots to fill, but it's a big opportunity for me and one I'm determined to take."
