CHRIS Taylor insisted Millwall would not get too downhearted after failing to score past a resilient Charlton side on Saturday.
The Lions extended their unbeaten run to 13 games with a 0-0 draw against the Addicks at The Den but spurned a host of chances to take maximum points.
Defender Mark Beevers said the result "felt like a defeat" in the home dressing room at full-time – but Taylor believes that is a mark of progress.
"I can understand what Mark is saying," he said. "We felt down but I think that's a sign of the times and how far we have come in a short space of time.
"The lads are disappointed to take a point but I don't think that's a bad thing. We shouldn't beat ourselves up because we were playing against a team that are organised and doing well.
"Charlton are no mugs and we shouldn't get too disheartened. We threw everything at them in the second-half and we had good chances – we did everything but score.
"We have been knocing on the door and scoring goals recently but it wasn't meant to be. It was just one of those games. Hopefully we will put it right next week at Ipswich and get three points."
