Uwe Rosler says he is proud of his players following Saturday's narrow 1-0 defeat to MK Dons at stadium:mk.
Rosler's side fell behind just before half-time to a fortunate Chuks Aneke goal, and asked all the questions in the second half as his side searched for an equaliser.
Both Jordy Hiwula and Amari'i Bell went close, but it was to be a harsh scoreline on Rosler's team.
“I am proud of my players,” said Rosler
“Our shape was really good today, and the plan was always to attack more in the second half. I thought we were on top for majority of the game, and coming here on the back of three away games in six days, it was tough.
“They didn’t trouble us. They had one header from outside the box and their goal in the first half.
"We should have scored with Jordy’s and Amari’i’s two opportunities; but we just didn’t connect properly with our shots.
“The last ball; the last bit of quality was missing, but they gave everything.
“As I said; I am very proud of my team.”
Rosler felt his players deserved something out of the game at stadium:mk, and reflected back on how the details cost his side in Buckinghamshire.
“We had two chances to clear it away [before the MK Dons goal],” added Rosler.
“It was disappointing, but that is the small detail we lost on today.
“My players haven’t lost against a team who outplayed us, or who have been better than us, we lost simply on a detail. When you have a player of Aneke’s potential, he will punish you and that cost us."
Town now have seven days until their next league match, which will be at home against Doncaster Rovers, and the German knows the importance of having a rest.
“Majority of my players will have a few days off to recover," confirmed Rosler.
“One or two will have to come in and train to keep those levels up, but in general we all deserve a couple of days away to recharge our batteries.
“It wasn’t our day today. But when you look at the week we’ve had, it’s not been too bad.”
