Joe Cole has held his hands up and admitted that his penalty against Trabzonspor was not the best.
The Liverpool midfielder was awarded a golden opportunity to open his account for the club in Thursday's Europa League play-off, first leg.
With Lucas Leiva having been sent crashing in the area, Cole was first to grab the ball and take full responsibility from 12 yards.
However, his nightmare start to life at Anfield - following Sunday's red card against Arsenal - continued as he saw his effort beaten away.
Cole was in repentant mood afterwards, having seen the Reds hold on for a 1-0 win, but insists he will not be dwelling on the disappointing miss.
"I hold my hands up, it was a bad penalty," said the England international.
"We can't dwell on it though. It was a bad pen but we won 1-0 and we have to take the positives from the game.
"It wasn't a vintage performance by any stretch but we won and we are happy with that. We are far from through though because it will be tough over there, make no mistake about it. Going away to Turkey is always tough so we have to be on our game next week."
Despite missing from the spot, Cole can be proud of his performance against Trabzonspor.
Asked to fill a floating role behind lone frontman Ryan Babel, he saw plenty of the ball and appears to be rekindling the spark he lost while marooned on the bench at Chelsea.
He helped play in Babel for the only goal of the game and believes there is much more to come from him once he acclimatises to his new surroundings.
"I'm finding my feet in my role and it's my job to create goals. It was nice to do that tonight for Ryan," he added.
"I'm just trying to do my best in every game and I'm really enjoying my football here. We've made a decent start to the season which is good."
