The home side took the lead in this afternoon's Premier League clash at the KC Stadium when Shane Long scored his first goal for the Tigers in the 12th minute.
Spurs equalised in the second half when Paulinho was able to turn and fire into the Hull net on the hour mark.
"I thought we played well today. We had some good opportunities in the second half," Sherwood told reporters.
"We never took the chances and the positive to me is that we ground it out. If we don't win the game, we certainly were not going to lose.
"We thought we should have won the game but you have to give Hull credit, they are fighting for their lives and they dug it out."
Tottenham currently occupy sixth place in the league table.
