Bristol Rovers boss Mark McGhee felt his side deserved the three points after the 1-1 draw with Burton.
David Clarkson gave Rovers a first-half lead, but Billy Kee's header after the break salvaged a point for the Brewers.
The Scot said: "We had chances to take it further away from Burton and shut out the game. Then we gave away a slack free-kick, a lazy free-kick, which is something we've talked about and worked on - but it resulted in a goal.
"That was hugely disappointing because it was too easy a goal to concede away from home when you're 1-0 up. I thought we had some decent situations with balls across their box and the keeper having to make a double save.
"I said before the game that I probably thought we'd need to score a couple of goals to win here and we had chances to do that. We were short of attacking options because of the players who were missing, but my gut feeling is still one of disappointment."
