"I thought there was a lot of hype after that match but we played a good passing side today and matched them and that's the pleasing aspect from our point of view."
O'Driscoll added: "I didn't think we eased off, it was just a mix-up that cost us the points but we got a draw and that's another step in the right direction.
"I think our play probably deserved three points overall but it wasn't to be."
Cardiff manager Dave Jones felt his side deserved their equaliser.
He said: "It looked like it was going to be a stalemate anyway and their goal resulted from mistakes from our part.
"The only time they played a 60-yard pass throughout the match they opened us up and that was disappointing.
"I thought we probably shaded the first half and they shaded the second. We probably nullified each other because there was a lot of midfield passing from both teams but no cutting edge."
Jones added: "This is a difficult place to come and Doncaster passed the ball well but we stuck to our task and maybe they got a bit nervous.
"I thought probably overall it was a fair result."
