The home side opened the scoring through Paul Highfield's penalty on 51 minutes but a late goal from Scott Carter gave Soham a share of the points.
Benjamin said: "I didn't think it was going to be our day but we deserved to get something from the game.
"We didn't fire on all cylinders and we allowed them to boss the game in the first half but I was pleased with how we fought back after the break.
"It was a clear penalty for them and I have no argument about that but that was their only chance of the half.
"Our passing let us down at times and our finishing was not up to scratch."
There were no fresh injury worries for Benjamin but he still made changes for the game at Newmarket.
Benjamin said: "Ian Pledger and Martin Bromwich are still making their comeback from injury and they were very tired after Saturday."
