Brighton boss Gus Poyet criticised striker Glenn Murray's decision to take and miss a late penalty in his side's 1-1 draw with fellow strugglers Gillingham.
The spot-kick was awarded four minutes from time and although Murray is the Seagulls regular penalty taker, Poyet was adamant he should have passed the buck having squandered numerous chances during the game.
"I don't know why he took the penalty," said Poyet. "Sometimes you have to understand the situation that as soon as you miss one chance it gets harder and harder."
He added: "The players make the decisions on the pitch and the players accepted it. If it is not your day delegate it to someone else who can win the game.
"We created 10 times the chances they did. I can do everything possible during the week - the team do their best and understand the way we want to play.
"After that it is up to them to finish the chances. The three subs were nearly perfect - with the three on the pitch they could not cope with us. God does not want me to get to 50 points."
