Peterhead manager Jim McInally was unhappy at the referee and his team’s defending after drawing at Stenhousemuir.
The Blue Toon had to settle for a 2-2 draw after leading 2-0 at half-time.
Boss McInally bemoaned the decision of referee Steven Kirkland for awarding the corner that led to Stenhousemuir’s leveller.
He said: “We were disappointed with the refereeing.
“Their second goal came from a corner where their player ran the ball off the park.
“And then he ran back thinking it was a goal kick and the referee gave a corner. We got punished for that because they scored from it.”
However, McInally also accepted his side’s poor defending was as big a factor in failing to win the game.
“We were so far ahead,” he said.
“Not so much in the score at 2-0 but we should have been four or five up at half-time.
“Our Achilles heel showed itself again – we lost two goals from set-pieces – which has cost us dearly already this season and we’ve paid the price for it again.”
