The game took place 20 hours after it had initially been scheduled due to a waterlogged pitch, but Gerrard insists that his side cannot blame the weather for their display.
"When you're fired up, pumped up, you've had your massages and you're ready to go, that's not ideal (when the game is called off)," said Gerrard. "But we're professionals. We're playing at the top level and we had to get ourselves up for this but I didn't think we were totally at the races.
"It was difficult conditions and a difficult pitch but we can't use that as an excuse. I thought Poland dealt with the conditions and played to the conditions slightly better than us. That's the reason we didn't get three points.
"The pitch was slippy, wet, cutting up. I think it was only laid a week and a half ago so it wasn't ideal. Both teams tried to make the most of it and they did it better than us. We did okay until we scored but never built on the one-goal lead. We never passed the ball well enough, for whatever reason."
England currently top Group H but have played a game more than their nearest challengers.
