NIGEL Clough thought the 3-2 defeat at Lincoln City summed up the Brewers' season.
Twice ahead in the game, Albion made costly defensive errors and them missed a penalty that would have salvaged a draw.
It left the Albion manager disappointed that his team had again given away the three points.
He said: "It's a measure of where we are because the top sides would have gone and won the game today. We have had this a number of times recently and the whole 90 minutes typified our season - I don't think you could have summed it up any better.
"We played extremely well at times and scored two brilliant goals, missed a penalty and end up with no points. But there's a reason for that - we seem to contrive ways of getting teams back in the game when they aren't in the game and we did that again today."
The Brewers also had to contend with some decisions going against them including what looked like a handball in the build up to Lincoln's second goal.
Clough said: "I thought it was a blatant handball for their second goal and we had a man down for their third goal but the game carries on.
"We played some brilliant stuff at times and scored two excellent goals but have nothing to show for it.
"But the game just encapsulates our season - what we are good at, what we are bad at. We started well, dominated the game but have got nothing out of it.
"The top teams would have won comfortably today but we are not a top team."
