"We have to look at this result in the right way in the fact they have respected us," said the Notts boss
"They have come to Meadow Lane and put 10 men behind the ball and made it difficult for us.
"When we did get into the final third, we found it hard to break them down and our quality wasn't what it was of previous weeks.
"But it felt like one of those days when the ball just wouldn't drop for us in the box and when it did it probably fell to the wrong person.
"The lads were all disappointed in the dressing room and I was delighted with that because it shows how far we have come in such a short space of time.
"The fans were fantastic again and while there were lots of positives to take out of the game, the disappointment was we didn't get the win."
