Robinson blames poor set pieces
Coach Andy Robinson felt Scotland paid dearly for poor set-pieces in the 22-16 defeat by England at Twickenham.
The reverse means the Scots go into the final Six Nations clash against Wooden Spoon rivals Italy still seeking their first win of the campaign.
"(It was) a tremendous defensive display and a great attitude shown by all the players," he told BBC Scotland.
"When we got the territory we were able to ask questions of England. But our lineout wasn't good enough."
The Scots held their own in a tight first half which ended 9-9, with two Chris Paterson penalties and a Ruaridh Jackson drop-goal keeping them in the game.
But Toby Flood, with his fourth penalty, put England in front and flanker John Barclay was sin-binned for infringing at a ruck to hand the hosts the advantage.

England added a converted Tom Croft try and although Max Evans grabbed a converted try for the Scots, Jonny Wilkinson's penalty confirmed victory.
Asked about Barclay's sin-binning, Robinson said: "I don't know what the penalty count was but it seemed a bit harsh. You've got to deal with it.
"Our lineout wasn't good enough today and we've got to look at all our set-pieces," he added.
"We've got to improve what we're doing. The boys are working hard at their game and there's a great team spirit and courage about what we're trying to do. I was delighted with that."
