West Ham defender Lucas Neill insists 'all is not lost' in the Hammers' pursuit of a place in Europe next season.
"It was frustrating for us and frustrating for the fans," Neill told West Ham's official website.
. "Some said it was a penalty, others said it wasn't. I am disappointed to be involved. The game was almost too easy for the first 15 minutes.
"We were guilty of what we have been doing a lot lately which is not punishing teams when we have been dominant."
And Neill is hoping for a repeat performance of last season's strong finish which saw the Hammers narrowly avoid relegation following a run of seven wins from nine games.
"We have obviously lost ground, we lost points and what should have been a really exciting month for us is now starting to look a little bit anti-climatic," Neill added.
"We are all very disappointed but also we had a good chat about what we are going to do here on in.
"As we all know last year we won seven out of nine games so all is not lost yet."
