Leeds centre-half Giuseppe Bellusci steered home a 79th-minute equaliser to rescue a deserved point for his side after Chris Maguire's thumping finish had given Wednesday the lead early in the second half.
"We had a good game with a lot of energy with a lot of good play also in the last third, which is what we missed in the last game.
"We had some very good actions, we played well and we had some very good opportunities, but the goalkeeper was extremely good.
"After they scored it was very difficult and we lost a little bit of calm. But after we made it 1-1 I believed that we could win the game. We played against a team who were very quick to get behind the ball and there was not a lot of space, but we did it sometimes very well.
"The players here have quality, but we have to do something better in the game."
Milanic refused to be drawn on whether he felt his side could mount a play-off challenge.
"My job is to improve the team," he added. "I have to see the players on the field in a big game like this and they have the quality, yes.
"There's enough quality. But my job is to improve them like I said.
"We're working very hard to make a good team."
