Chris Powell said night’s like the one on Tuesday are going to happen through the course of a season but admitted it’s all about the response.
The 2-0 defeat to Luton Town was the first off day Blues have had so far this season according to Powell.
And ahead of the Bristol Rovers game this weekend, the Blues boss said consistency is all important for a successful campaign.
“I spoke very openly and frankly with the players, as I always do, and it’s just about picking them up and going again,” said Powell.
“That’s what it’s like in this league because you know you have to get yourself right for another game.
“It’s the first time we haven’t scored in a game this season which I didn’t like, but I’m sure we’ll rectify that at Bristol Rovers
“In any good season what you have is consistency, and I think you could see in the previous three games there was a consistent way of playing and how we wanted to attack teams.
“It went for us last week against Bradford, should’ve done against Plymouth, and we all know what happened against Doncaster, but you move on.
“Over the course of 46 games it’s going to happen. You have to bounce back, it’s your reaction and how you deal with it.
“In some respects we are missing Harry Lennon, Dru Yearwood hasn’t seen any minutes yet and some other key players are missing.
“We’ve got a few knocks for Saturday, some players 50/50 for Saturday. I like a settled group.
“Everyone saw how we worked as a team last year and we didn’t have too many changes because that helps to get some consistency into your team.”
