Everton defender Phil Jagielka said his side were disappointed that they failed to hold on to their lead in the FA Cup against Oldham.
The England international gave the Toffees a 2-1 lead with a header but saw his side concede a goal in injury time as they drew 2-2 at Boundary Park.
Jagielka told Call Collymore: “We got a little edgy and it was a bit like the Alamo near the end.”
Oldham substitute Matt Smith scored the equaliser with virtually the last action of the match.
Jagielka said on talkSPORT: “I was quite excited thinking that I had got the winner but it proved not to be the case."
The England international admitted that they had difficulty in dealing with 6ft 6in Smith.
Jagielka stated: “You pray that they mishit the ball and it goes too low and then Smith’s height advantage doesn’t come into play.”
But Jagielka is determined to remain positive after the setback.
“We need to step up to the plate and we are under no illusions what we need to do for the rest of the season,” he added.
