West Brom boss Roy Hodgson was left in a rather glum mood following his side's 2-1 defeat against Wigan at The Hawthorns.
And the Baggies' penalty curse struck again following Jordi Gomez's spot-kick winner after Steven Reid's stunning free-kick put the hosts ahead.
However, Victor Moses' first goal for 13 months brought the Latics level before the break and Albion then conceded a penalty for the fourth successive home game when Reid was adjudged to have fouled Moses and Gomez ensured back-to-back away wins for the visitors.
But Hodgson was not best pleased, telling Sky Sports: "It's frustrating to have so much of the game, especially in the second half which we totally dominated, but we got nothing out of it.
"So many opportunities, so many situations where you think the equaliser is going to come and we might have then gone on to win it but they held out basically, but I can't ask much more from the team in the second half than they gave us but it wasn't enough because we didn't put the ball in the back of the net."
Hodgson preferred not to say too much on decisions made by referee Mike Dean after conceding yet another penalty on home turf, but said: "I'm not talking about penalties anymore, I've given up.
"I had a few weeks where I was foolish enough to state honestly what I thought, but I've changed my attitude and philosophy completely and now I'm not discussing penalties at all."
However, when asked if he thought Wigan deserved their penalty when defender Reid held his hands up after bringing down Moses, he admitted: "Oh yes, that was a penalty."
And Hodgson added: "We've missed an opportunity to get away from the pack. Had we been able to win this game, we would have been in quite a comfortable position but we weren't able to win it and we have to come to terms with it.
"If we can guarantee playing like that for the next 24 games, then I'll be happy.
"We've certainly had results this season where we've played nowhere near as well as today."
