KARLEIGH Osborne had mixed feelings after Blackburn Rovers' 2-1 victory at The Den ensured his first goal for Millwall ultimately counted for nothing.
Osborne broke his duck for the Lions by hooking in a half-volley after just 14 minutes and his strike looked to have given Kenny Jackett's side a solid foundation to build upon in the second-half.
But the tide turned after Rob Hulse's own goal and Jordan Rhodes' penalty and Osborne was left to bemoan referee Gavin Ward's decision that lead to the visitors' winner from the spot.
Osborne said: "It's a very disappointing result. The boys worked hard and it's a tough defeat to take. We've had a penalty given against us that for me wasn't a penalty.
"From what I saw, nobody touched Grant Hanley – he fell over. It was never a penalty but the referee made his decision and there's nothing we can do to change that now.
"It's a costly decision because I thought it was the wrong one. The referee claimed Hanley had been clipped and I think we were hoping that linesman would say something.
"Blackburn know it wasn't a penalty – they have seen the replays. But they're in a relegation dogfight and they're not going to be be honest in a situation like that and give up points.
"I was pleased to score the goal and I hoped we would push on to get the win, so it's tough coming away with nothing. The ball was there to be hit, it dropped nicely and I struck it well.
"But I feel we've been robbed. We had chances, even at the very end, but things didn't go our way."
