Bury boss Alan Knill was not too dismayed after watching his side crash to their first League Two defeat of the season against Exeter City.
Richard Logan's goal at Gigg Lane finally put an end to the Shakers' nine-match unbeaten start to the campaign, but Knill was happy with his side's overall display, despite the result.
He said: "I thought we played pretty well, to be fair. The key is to not concede, but after seven minutes we gave them something to hold on to and they did.
"We had plenty of chances but that final pass or final shot just wasn't there for us, sometimes you have days like that.
"We had enough of the game to get something out of it. We didn't manage that this time but I can't fault the effort of the players."
