West Brom boss Steve Clarke bemoaned the referee's decision to award a "soft" 90th-minute penalty as his side fell to a opening day defeat at home to Southampton.
Saints striker Rickie Lambert completed his dream week by converting the spot kick but Clarke thought his side were worth a point.
Clarke said: “I thought it was very, very soft. I’ve seen it again several times on video – and I’m still looking for the contact.
“It was clever play from the Southampton player.
“But to make that call at that stage of the game was a big decision to make.”
“We were disappointed with our first half. Southampton certainly started much better.
“They were on the front foot from the off and they penned us back.
“But what we did well in the first half was we hung in there, we stayed in the game, we defended resolutely.
“Towards the end of the first half we tinkered with the shape a little bit and it gave us a better feel for the game.
“At half-time we readjusted a couple of things and in the second half I thought we were much better.
“To sum it up, I thought Southampton were better than us in the first half and we had the best of the game in the second half.
“As it petered out into what looked like being a 0-0, if any team looked like nicking it, it would have been us.”
