Chester FC manager Steve Burr believes nerves were responsible for his side conceding a late equaliser in the 2-2 draw with Boreham Wood.
Despite twice leading through a brace from John Rooney, the Blues had to settle for a point as substitute Harry White netted in the 90th minute to earn the visitors a share of the spoils.
Scott Doe cancelled out Rooney's 11th minute opener inside five minutes but when Rooney restored the lead on 65 minutes, Chester held on to the advantage until the final minute.
It meant the afternoon ended in yet more frustration for the home faithful as the Blues penchant for leaking late goals continued.
"It was two points dropped, it was a real killer blow and really hard to take," said Burr, whose side have now gone five games without a win and visit resurgent Torquay United on Tuesday in another six-pointer.
"We'd watched them and we knew what to expect so the first goal we conceded was disappointing because we made a great start and then in the second-half we got ourselves back in front which was good but when you've conceded like that at the death it's hard to take.

"It's probably the nerves of everybody and the players and the anxiety that sets in. I thought, like we did at Guiseley on Monday, when we got possession we started giving the ball away and started to panic.
"They are a young set of lads but I said to them 'you can't let the crowd affect you, you've to rise above that' and being brave is having the ball and doing the right things and maybe in terms of our decision making when we're in front and it comes to closing a game out we've not done very well.
"Boreham Wood are like us and fighting for their lives at the bottom and striving to get the points that will keep them safe
"They came here on the back of a few good results but I'm disappointed we didn't see the game out because to concede as late as we did was a real blow for us."
With influential defender Ben Heneghan leaving the field with a twisted knee that makes him a doubt for the trip to Torquay, there were few positives for Chester fans to take from the game, although Rooney's two goals offered some respite as the midfielder produced his best performance for quite some time.
Burr said: "I'm pleased for John. He's got his two goals, I thought the first one was a good finish and then obviously the free-kick is what he's capable of doing."
