Gillingham manager Andy Hessenthaler felt his side deserved more than a point after fighting back for a 1-1 draw with Port Vale.
The visitors took the lead through Marc Richards' third goal in two games but Danny Kedwell equalised early in the second-half with his third penalty of the campaign.
"We definitely deserved more than a point. We're a little bit disappointed, but I can probably sleep easy based on the performance," said Hessenthaler.
"On a different day, we probably would have won the game, but we didn't. We were a little bit fortunate with the retaken penalty, but we've earned that bit of luck.
"We haven't had that much luck over the last few games, especially in front of goal.
"Our problem at the moment is we are not putting teams to the sword. We're giving silly goals away and we've done that in the past three games."
