Lambs caretaker boss Dale Belford was honest in his appraisal of the result against Cambridge United, which brought the six match unbeaten game to an end on Tuesday night.
"I thought perhaps it was one game too many for the lads, we've played a lot of good football recently but we were beaten by a better side on the day this time."
Of the two major talking points of the game - the penalty and Lee Hendrie's sending off, Belford said, "I couldn't really see if challenge by Richard (Tait) which lead to the penalty was in or out of the box as some have suggested, but the referee has spotted something and we have to accept decisions for and against us.
And if Lee raised his hands to an opponent as it seems from the video replay then he can have no complaints about the referee's decision and it is very disappointing to be losing Lee after he has just got back from suspension.
"But we will regroup and come back in to training on Thursday and go again on Saturday at Barrow."
