Jon Brady said his side paid the price for some key lapses in Friday night’s 3-1 defeat at Peterborough United.
“Our commitment is excellent but at crucial moments we throw the game away and that’s the disappointing thing,” he said.
“We frustrated Peterborough in the first half for the most part, the goal we gave away was a bit soft but the reaction to falling behind was good.
“I felt with the penalty their should have been a sending off, he is denying a goalscoring opportunity and making no attempt to play the ball, but we were quite positive at half-time. It was another disappointing goal against just three minutes into the second half and that’s the story of our season really.
“Poor decision making at crucial times has cost us and we gave them a goal which is the hugely disappointing thing.
“We dominated possession towards the end and we didn’t give in, we pushed and pushed but it just didn’t quite fall for us.
“I never lose heart, the players are giving everything they’ve got but we are making silly errors in big situations and that is the biggest frustration right now.
“You can never give in and we will never give up, we have got to attack Ipswich on Tuesday.
“We can take confidence from our home form but we’ve only got four games left now.”
