David Dunn admitted that his side were made to pay for a sloppy second half start as they fell to a 2-1 defeat to Newport County at Rodney Parade on Saturday.
The Bluebirds had given as good as they’d got during a competitive first half which saw Lewis Hardcastle blast Barrow back on level terms after Liam Shephard had put the hosts in front.
However, an error just three minutes after the restart allowed County to restore their lead and it was a moment from which Dunn’s men struggled to recover.
“We’re disappointed not to at least come away with a point,” Dunn told iFollow Bluebirds.
“I think we have to be disappointed with the way we conceded the goals but I have said to the lads in the dressing room afterwards that we will get better as the season goes on.
“I thought it took us 10 or 15 minutes to get going but when they got the goal it seemed to settle us down and we were the best team for half an hour.
“We went in at half-time and I felt we had the momentum but we had a sloppy start to the second half, even from the kick-off and that’s something we have to improve upon.
“As it went on, they killed the game and we were a little bit naïve, so we have to learn from that.”
