Rochdale manager Keith Hill was in reflective mood despite his side's fine performance in losing 3-2 to Birmingham.
Gary Jones' brace gave Dale the chance of pulling off a shock, but Hill was more concerned about some of the mistakes his men made.
He said: "It's difficult when you are emotionally involved but I will watch it again. I Sky plussed it as I am led to believe it was a good performance.
"But the performance will be forgotten in a few days while the result stays in the mind and on the records.
"We carved out some really good opportunities but we are on a steep learning curve.
"We have to allow players to make mistakes as that's how you learn. But mistakes mean you lose games and modern football suggests that losing games loses you your job."
