Blackburn Rovers manager Paul Ince felt that refereeing decision against Rovers cost them all three points in the 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion on Saturday afternoon.
Rovers went ahead through Benni McCarthy's penalty following a pull back on Jason Roberts by Ryan Donk, and Ince felt it was a penalty even if it was soft, however no softer than a later sending off.
Ince told SkySports: "The penalty was a penalty. Donk pulled the lad and you can't do that. It can go either way but you can't pull people in the box.
"It was harsh maybe, but then again so was our sending off."
The sending off that Ince spoke of was that of McCarthy's, with him picking up two bookings in the first half. Incey felt this was unbelievable as were the constant awards in West Brom's favour and the sending off made the match even tougher for his side, but he was still pleased with the fight-back and spirit to find a late equaliser through Keith Andrews.
He added: "There was nothing malicious in McCarthy's tackle. This was compounded the second time as the ball hit his shoulder.
"That just kills the game and was a poor decision.
"The referee gave West Brom everything and instead of me telling the lads at half time we can win, I'm saying sit back and soak up the pressure.
"We showed fantastic spirit though and kept going and going."
