Boss Phil Parkinson was unhappy with the match officials after Bradford's 1-1 draw at Oldham at Boundary Park.
Nahki Wells fired the visitors ahead with his 14th goal of the season but Jonson Clarke-Harris quickly blasted a superb equaliser which stretched Oldham's unbeaten run to seven games in all competitions.
Victory for the Bantams would have moved them back into the play-off places, and Parkinson said: "We'll take the point because Oldham are a good side who are playing really well, but we should have had at least one penalty.
"Kyel Reid is convinced he was brought down twice, but he got booked for diving when that's something he doesn't do.
"There was another foul on Nahki Wells that I thought was a certain penalty, so it's very frustrating we didn't get any of them.
"The positive is that we played an Oldham side who are full of confidence and we acquitted ourselves well in a fiercely contested derby.
"We started well and got our goal, but in the next period of the first half I thought we switched off slightly.
"We were looking dangerous and we might have scored a second, so it's frustrating that there was a loss of concentration which led to Oldham's goal.
"We were disappointed not to beat Notts County at home the other night, but overall it's five points from three games and that isn't a bad return."
