Moyes bemoaned his side's inability to add to Peter Crouch's first-half own goal, he accepts it is not a bad result for his team.
"Getting the first goal helped us," he said. "That's always important.
"We gave away a lot of free-kicks at the start of the second half and that gave them a bit of momentum.
"We couldn't quite get that second goal.
"But Stoke were much better in the second half and it's not a bad point away at Stoke."
