Deveronvale boss Steve Dolan felt hard done by as they lost 2-0 to Glenafton Athletic in the Scottish Cup second round.
Strikes from Darren McGill in the 87th minute and Joe Andrew in stoppage time won it for the Scottish Junior Cup holders at Princess Royal Park.
Dolan felt a draw would have been a fair result.
He said: “It was a little bit tough to take because the game was pretty much 50-50. The two teams were evenly matched.
“They maybe had more of the ball and we had the better chances.
“But I think a draw would have been a fair result. We were just about resigned to having a replay next week and then we get caught with a sucker punch. “I was disappointed because I think the lads deserved something.
“I thought the first goal was going to win it and with 10 minutes to go their keeper made a great save to tip a Dane Ballard shot onto the bar.
“It was an unbelievable save and if that goes in I think we would have won the game.
“But I couldn’t see past a draw and then they scored so credit to them.
“It was one we might look back on and think we could have won.”
