Parker said: "The longer the first half went on we came into it.
"It was a great chance for Cavaleiro - that needs to go in."
Parker admitted that Robinson may have deserved to have been sent off, saying: "I've not seen it again. In real time I didn't see it.
"I want my players to play on the line - to be committed and aggressive. But if he's crossed it he needs to look at that.
"I thought defensively we were fantastic. You still want to be a bit of a counter-threat.
"In the second half, you're playing the clock a bit - we tried to hold on but it wasn't to be.
But I've nothing but admiration for my team - they were superb to a man.
