Accrington boss Leam Richardson felt his side were worthy of all three points against Plymouth Argyle and bemoaned the home draw.
A disputed free-kick after 27 minutes saw the Pilgrims take the lead in Saturday's League Two encounter at the Crown Ground.
Robbie Williams' 30-yard effort crashed against a post and bounced nicely for winger Onismor Bhasera to finish off.
Prior to that, Argyle goalkeeper Rene Gilmartin produced a superb stop to keep out a Lee Molyneux free-kick before then denying Rommy Boco.
Stanley had chances to get back on level terms after the goal as Gilmartin denied Molyneux again and, on the stroke of half-time, Craig Lindfield was one-on-one with the keeper but Gilmartin kept the hosts out again.
They finally found a way past Gilmartin after 50 minutes when a high ball into the box was not cleared by the Pilgrims defence and it fell into James Beattie's path. The former England man walloped a low shot into the net from 12 yards out.
Gilmartin then denied Luke Joyce from a free-kick as Stanley piled on the pressure and the keeper somehow clawed out the follow-up to keep it all-square.
"We are disappointed we haven't won. There is always pressure to win your home games and we felt like we did enough overall to win based on chances," said Richardson. "You do need the rub of the green sometimes and I am sure it will come."
Accrington keeper Paul Rachubka turned from hero to villain in the 1-1 draw.
Rachubka, on loan from Leeds, kept out Warren Feeney's penalty with just 12 minutes left after Michael Liddle was adjudged to have brought down substitute Paris Cowan-Hall. But he was then sent off in injury time after reacting when Feeney followed up a loose ball and challenged him.
Richardson added: "Their keeper pulled off three or four saves that he probably won't do again. He did fantastic and fair play to him but I think it was only right that our keeper saved the penalty. I didn't see the sending off but have spoke to Chub and will watch the DVD before I say anything about it."
