Jim McInally was left frustrated by a late refereeing decision after Peterhead’s 0-0 draw at Albion Rovers.
It could yet prove to be a precious point in their battle to stay in League One, keeping the side in eighth.
But the Blue Toon boss felt it could have been more.
With just minutes left, Rory McAllister seized on a poor defensive header and rounded Ross Stewart.
The home keeper hauled him down but the referee only awarded a free-kick and a yellow card.
McInally could not hide his disappointment with the decision after the game.
“We were pretty aggrieved because he said it wasn’t a goalscoring opportunity,” he said.
“It was pretty convincing that something had to happen but for the keeper to only be yellow carded is pretty unreal and we felt that was a great opportunity gone.”
He added: “It was a hell of a decision to get nothing out of it. The referee asked me ‘what would you expect’ and the least I’d expect is the goalie goes off.
“Rory is one of the best finishers in Scotland and you’re telling me it’s not a goalscoring opportunity because it’s just at the edge of the box.”
Despite the decision, McInally saw plenty of positives for Peterhead as they stare down relegation.
And he feels the side can take heart into their next two games – both at Balmoor.
“In general, we took a lot out of the game because we defended really well,” he added.
“If anyone was going to win it in the last 15 minutes, it was us because we pushed on.
“With the other two teams around us getting beat (Stranraer and Stenhousemuir), it’s a favourable point
” That’s what we need – everyone muck in and forget any grievances, just secure the club’s status in the league.”
