Long grabbed Hull's late leveller and believes the draw means the Tigers no longer need to look over their shoulders as the relegation fight hots up.
"I think it was a massive point for us," he said.
"It keeps them six points behind us with two games left, but with a worse goal difference, so we can look at Fulham as finishing behind us at least.
"It was a big point for us, it was a big thing not letting them get three points - 36 on the table with Fulham on 33 behind us would have been a bit more scary.
"I thought we were fully deserving of a least a point, but after they went 2-0 you get to thinking it isn't going to be our day. We can go to Aston Villa, not switching off, but quietly confident that we are fairly safe."
