Doncaster Rovers boss Sean O'Driscoll was not too disappointed despite seeing his side lose 1-0 against ten-man Birmingham City at St Andrew's.
The Blues were reduced to ten men by the sending-off of Mehdi Nafti just 24 minutes into the game, but still took all three points thanks to a Cameron Jerome strike at the start of the second half.
O'Driscoll told the Sheffield Star: "The onus was on us to break them down. I can't fault the efforts of the players.
"We didn't lump it. We moved the ball and created chances and we had one or two penalty shouts that we'll have to look at again on the DVD.
"There is no point in screaming and shouting about it. You have to get on with the game and the lads did that.
"We didn't get frustrated. We tried to move the ball and tried to be creative on our set-plays and on another day we could have won.
"I said that in this division that we'd concentrate on performances and I thought our performance was excellent."
