Jon Brady was disappointed as he reflected on Saturday’s 3-0 home defeat to league leaders Portsmouth.
“We didn’t do the basics right and we gifted Portsmouth all three goals,” he said.
“In the first half I felt we did push and probe and we had one or two openings. Our intention wasn’t to sit back and we did have a go but you can see Portsmouth are a really good side.
“We’d built our own belief coming into today but we were sloppy in a few moments and that is unlike us.
“I’m disappointed because I felt we could have gone toe-to-toe with Portsmouth but we have got bigger fights to come this season starting with Fleetwood next Saturday.”
