Skipper Mark Connolly admits Reds were ‘flat’ as they suffered a first home defeat since October against Colchester United on Boxing Day.
A goal in each half earned the U’s a 2-0 win on an afternoon when, despite plenty of possession and some good openings, the host struggled to create too much.
Conns said: “Perhaps Saturday’s win at Accrington took more out of us than we thought, but we looked a bit flat.
“The manager countered that by giving guys an opportunity and making changes but we gave away a couple of bad goals and from my point of view as a defender that is really disappointing – we should be doing better on both of them.”
The games are coming thick and fast of course, with a home date against Stevenage on Saturday now on the horizon.
“That’s the good thing about this time of the season, there is always a game coming where you can get back on track,” added Conns.
“That has to be the aim for Saturday. It will be tough but I’m 100% certain the fans will see a better performance from us.
