Ryan praised the performance on the club’s official website after the match.
“The point means a lot in the context of things, it almost feels like we’ve won the game,” Ryan said.
“With our superior goal difference, it could prove to be big come the end of the season – any points are vital at this stage of the campaign.
“Given our recent run it feels good to come here and give a reaction, and the clean sheet is testament to the effort of everyone today.”
