Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale wants to see his players hit back quickly following a shock 3-2 FA Cup first round defeat at Curzon Athletic.
Tisdale accepted that his side had been well below their best at the weekend, but doesn't want to see the Grecians' promotion push stall as a result.
He told the Express & Echo: "I will not let this rock our players. We have to make sure we retain the good play we have shown so far this year.
"I am desperately disappointed that we lost the game on Saturday because it was a game that we should have won.
"But I can't be too down about it, because if you dwell on it you can get stuck in a rut.
"We have done really well so far this season and if you had handed me the opportunity to be fourth in the league at this stage of the season, I would have been more than happy.
"We won't dwell on a setback like this. If we were vulnerable to losing all the good play off the back of one or two hiccups, I don't think we would have come as far as we have done.
"We just have to make sure that this doesn't bite into our confidence."
