Kenny Miller was left ruing two refereeing decisions against the Czech Republic that could cost Scotland a place at Euro 2012.
The Cardiff striker put the Scots ahead against the Czech Republic before his strike was cancelled out by Jaroslav Plasil's equaliser.
Nevertheless, he was on hand to play an incisive pass to Darren Fletcher who produced a crisp finish to put them ahead.
It was then that Dutch referee Kevin Blom took centre stage. Firstly, he awarded a penalty against Danny Wilson for a foul on Jan Rezek, when it looked like the Liverpool defender got the ball.
Yet, things were to get worse for the Tartan Army. They were incensed when they went searching for a late goal and missed out on what looked a sure penalty.
The Czech's Roman Hubnik caught Christophe Berra's ankle but Blom inextricably booked the Wolves defender for diving.
The result leaves Scotland with faint hopes of qualifying for Euro 2012 and is reminiscent of their 2008 campaign when Christian Panucci managed to score a late goal as a result of another bad refereeing decision.
"I know we never really got started the second half and kind of felt we were just waiting for them to score so we're disappointed with that, but when you get your nose back in front again and you lose a goal the way we did, it's like Italy from three years ago," said Miller.
"Their penalty is soft and I think we've got a stonewaller at the other end.
"You've got to rely on the referees to get the major decisions right and he has probably got two wrong there.
"You can't rely on them all the time but with the two decisions that have gone against us, we can feel hard done by."
Miller did feel Scotland contributed to their own downfall, though.
"The decision of the penalty might have been wrong but there were a couple of incidents before where we could have stopped it at source, we could have maybe defended it a bit better."
