However, Wagner insisted there was nothing to worry about in terms of attacking threats.

He said: “We deserved a point for our fighting spirit and the attitude that we showed today. It is everything you need when fighting in the position we are currently in.

“We missed a bit of luck today, which is what you want when get out of the danger zone, but we had created a lot of opportunities in recent matches and this is why it is not a concern.

“It is disappointing to lose, but we will attempt to perform better in the next six games.”
