Paul Tisdale acknowledged that his side have things to work on after Saturday’s 4-3 defeat to Bury.
Tisdale’s men led 3-1 with 17 minutes to play at The Energy Check Stadium at Gigg Lane but three late goals from the Shakers saw them maintain their division-best home form and overtake the Dons in the Sky Bet League Two table.
“We're gutted, absolutely gutted,” Tisdale said at the start of his post-match press conference.
“There are, of course, things we can work on but I'm not going to discuss them in the aftermath. We'll have to go away and decide how we're going dig into those things.
“There aren't dozens of things we need to work on. I have a hunch on a few things and, while I'm not going to tell you that in the press, we need to work on it.
“To lose a lead, you have to be leading, so there's good in what we're doing. I loved the commitment and effort and our attacking but like everyone else, I'm disappointed with the end. It wasn't a disaster of a performance, but a disaster of a result.”
He continued: “I feel totally different to the game at Northampton [Town] because it was a very different game. I was livid after the Northampton game because we had it under control, but this was end-to-end from start to finish and there were loads of goals in the game.
“Bury are a good team with good creative players, and it certainly feels different to the other disappointments we've had. In the end, though, we’re disappointed and gutted for the supporters too. We have to march on.”
