Chorley manager Jamie Vermiglio says failure to score penalties is costing his side like it did in their 0-0 draw with Dagenham & Redbridge.
Courtney Meppen-Walters was denied by Elliot Justham from the spot in the 72nd minute after Daggers defender Luke Croll picked up a second yellow card to reduce the hosts to 10 men at Victoria Road.
But the visitors failed to take advantage of it and Vermiglio said: "We've got ourselves a good opportunity to put the ball in the back of the net and we've missed one.
You may also want to watch:
"Mepsy stepped up and he's brave enough to step up, but we should be scoring and Mepsy is the first to hold his hand up.
"We've missed a few opportunities this season in regards to penalties to put ourselves in front.
"I didn't even watch the penalty this time, I turned round. It's disappointing as we should be coming in 1-0, but we're not.
"We kept a clean sheet away from home so there is lots of positives and we would have taken it before the game naturally."
