Poole Town boss Tom Killick was enraged after his side paid the penalty in a 2-1 defeat to Tiverton Town – during which two of his side were sent off.
Naming an unchanged starting XI from the team that thumped Farnborough in Southern League South on Saturday, Dolphins took the lead through Jamie Whisken at the end of the first half.
But goals from Jordan Dyer and a controversial River Allen penalty two minutes into stoppage time meant Tivvy, who also had a man sent off, earned all three points.
And Killick was left fuming with the late spot-kick awarded by referee James Robinson, describing as “a farce” the official’s decision.
He told the Daily Echo: “We haven’t lost the game, we’ve had the game taken away from us. There’s not one person in the ground, including those from Tiverton, that won’t accept that.
“But the difficulty is when I make comments is that it’s sour grapes, me moaning about referees again.”
