Accrington were left frustrated after being denied a crucial victory against relegation rivals Torquay.
Substitute Will Hatfield thought he'd scored an 86th-minute winner when he tapped in the rebound after Rommy Boco's shot was saved.
But his celebrations were cut short when he realised he'd been flagged offside, despite coming from an onside position.
That decision cost Stanley their first back-to-back league wins since September having edged out of the bottom two with a 3-0 win at Rochdale in midweek.
The Reds went closest to breaking the deadlock in a tight first half with Tuesday's two-goal hero Lee Molyneux trying his luck each time Stanley won a free-kick within shooting range and he twice tested visiting keeper Michael Poke.
Ryan Jarvis' header over the bar was the best Torquay mustered from the first half but straight after the restart, Billy Bodin fired narrowly over from a wide angle.
Boco then had to clear Elliott Benyon's header off the line but the hosts looked more likely to grab a winner.
Sub Amine Linganzi was denied by Poke at his near post before Hatfield saw his goal disallowed.
Poke then gathered James Gray's shot at the second attempt although Paul Rachubka had to keep out Kevin Nicholson's free-kick in stoppage time, which was the only save the Stanley keeper had to make.
