"There were a lot of things there, but the most important thing didn't quite go our way and that was the result which was all I was really bothered about.
"I thought we had enough opportunities out there to win the game. But, on the other hand, to play with 14 men for 35 minutes and, to nearly pinch it at the end, is credit to the boys and the effort they put in.
"We struggled a bit in patches and then we looked really good in patches. There were a lot of penalties as our set piece didn't really go the way we wanted it to.
"But we created opportunities and took our chances. It's just frustrating that we gave them maybe two chances to score, and they took them. But that's top flight rugby nowadays."
The losing bonus point keeps Gloucester just ahead of Wasps, who lost at Worcester on Friday evening, in the Aviva Premiership table although Northampton leapfrogged both sides with their win over London Irish on Saturday.
Gloucester have made a habit of picking up losing bonus points on the road, which Tindall feels demonstrate the team's fighting qualities.
"It's another point gained. I think we've taken a point from every league game this year, and they do add up at the end of the day.
"But games like today, Wasps away, Leicester away, Sarries away, they're games we could and maybe should have won.
"But the spirit of the team, and the way they play for each other, has been outstanding. It's there week in, week out and I don't think there's any point in a game where we think we're going to lose it.
"We've got guys like Henry, Jonny, Charlie, Freddie, Cookie, Dan Robson etc. You've always got that X Factor to turn games and we back their ability. We've just got to stop giving the other team chances."
Nearly 12,000 packed the Rec on Friday evening, with a good proportion of Gloucester followers making the trip to support their team, for a game which Tindall feels has a special place in the fixture list.
"You can tell by how noisy it was that both sets of supporters love it. I've played in numerous Bath-Gloucester derbies and they're always special.
"I thought that was a cracker of a game to watch, and I think most of the fans will go home happy, the Gloucester fans a little bit less so."
