Oxford coach Mickey Lewis is lamenting a penalty decision after his side threw away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Burton.

Alfie Potter and Peter Leven had put the U's into a seemingly comfortable position by scoring either side of half-time. But Justin Richards then fired in a quick double, the first coming from the penalty spot after Liam Davis fouled Jacques Maghoma in the box, to secure the Brewers a point.

"It was a soft penalty, more of a challenge than anything else," he said.

"But at 2-0 up you've got to be professional and we shouldn't have got into that position. We played some great football and at times we were outstanding. We were really pleased with that aspect of our play.

"There aren't many teams in our league that can play the kind of football we played in the first half. But we've got to be more clinical and take more of our chances. We don't like to say we were unlucky because you make your own luck, but let's just say we felt we were unfortunate.

"As a whole, we've really dominated the game, because we came strong again near the end. The good thing though is that, as well as all the management and staff being really disappointed not to have won after being two up, so are the players, and that's a good sign."
