Yeovil got off to the best possible start when they took the lead in the 10th minute, with their first meaningful attack. Joel Grant got on to the end of a cross from the right and from 12 yards out he slid the ball into the empty net.
Mellon said: "It's hard enough to win matches but when you gift goals like that it makes it even harder.
Both teams were a bit nervy but I cannot fault the effort of our lads.
"From where I was it was a definite penalty, without a shadow of a doubt. Cywka is a dancer when he gets the ball in the area and the only way to get him of it is to foul him.
"They found a way to get back in the game and then we had a real go at trying to win the game.
"I think it's a case of two points lost, I think we tried everything we could to get the win."
In the 67th minute Yeovil thought they had retaken the lead when Ishmael Miller bundled in a Joe Grant cross from close range - but Probert ruled that the striker had handled the ball.
Commenting on the disallowed goal, Mellon said: "It was a handball, he punched it into the net and we are playing football not netball."
