Striker Eoin Doyle was disappointed to be on the losing side despite notching his first goal for the club on his debut.
The striker, who signed on loan from Preston North End on deadline day, also won the Audi Man of the Match award but did feel there were positives to take from the game.
He said: “It was a bit of a mad game. The result was disappointing but the team showed good character to try and nearly take something out of the game but there are plenty of positives to take.
“The first half was hit and miss but we finished the half very well.
“We had a good go in the second half and we were dominant until the sending off but there are plenty of positives going into next week.
“We a full week of training ahead of us now. I’m looking forward to this week and hopefully we can put it right next week.”
Doyle scored the leveller on 52 minutes. “It’s always nice to get off the mark early,” he admitted.
“Craig Davies did well for me and it’s landed well for me and I’m delighted to get off the mark.
“I just wish it meant more for the result.”
Speaking of his partnership with Davies, Doyle is confident they can strike up a good understanding.
“We linked up well together to say that’s the first time we have played together,” he said.
“Friday was the first time we had trained together so it was enjoyable and nice for us both to get a goal.
“I’m looking forward to playing up top with him again.”
