Wilfried Bony headed the visitors in front, but it was not until the introduction of substitute Lukas Podolski just before the hour that Arsenal finally sparked into life with two goals in the space of 60 seconds which looked to have won the match.
The Germany international levelled before Olivier Giroud grabbed a second.
But Garry Monk's side - fighting against being dragged into the relegation battle - eventually forced a late equaliser.
Britton was involved in the move which led to Mathieu Flamini's bizarre own goal in stoppage time.
"To come away with a point in the end, we're happy with that," Britton told Sky Sports.
"We stayed in front for quite a long time and then all of a sudden we find ourselves 2-1 down in the space of a minute.
"It's tough then, but I thought we showed great character to come back and keep pushing, keep pushing and to get a goal right at the end there, it was a bit fortunate but we'll take that.
"I was stumbling and I was on the way down to be honest but we haven't had much luck lately and we needed a little bit of luck today. We got that with the goal.
"We've come away with a point today and now we've got a tough home game against Norwich on Saturday."
