The League Two top-of-the-table clash was full of good passing football, but neither team found a cutting edge as it ended 0-0 at the Kassam Stadium.
Tisdale's team won 4-0 at Scunthorpe at the weekend and he was delighted with the effort from his players.
He said: "It was two teams playing safe football at times, and considered football. It turned into quite a strategic game out there.
"After Saturday, travelling to Scunthorpe and back, I was very pleased with all the effort of my players.
"It was more about concentration, a different type of game to last weekend's.
"We're not going to go far wrong if we go away from home twice and keep two clean sheets in a row.
"The league is very tight at the moment. I think it's going to be another 10 games before it opens up."
