Steven Davies revealed that the players were 'bitterly disappointed' to lose 3-2 against Ipswich Town.
After the striker had looked to have salvaged a point for The Seasiders with a stoppage-time equaliser, Daryl Murphy scored to bring to an end an unbeaten start to the season at Bloomfield Road.
"When you're at home you always want to win the game but I think in hindsight, once it's 2-2, I think we'd have been lucky to take a point from it," he admitted. "In hindsight, we should have just defended what we had - but we're at home and we want to give the fans something to cheer about. We're bitterly disappointed."
The performance, especially in the second-half, was an uncharacteristic one following some solid performances in the past seven games.
"We weren't at our best in the second-half, and to be fair even in the first-half they started well. Since I've been here it's the first time that we've been a little bit sloppy.
"I think that's the only I time I can say we haven't been at it from the first whistle. We're only 15 games in and we don't go over the top when we win so we certainly won't go over the top after this defeat."
The goal for Davies was his second in a tangerine shirt, although he knows that he'll have to remain patient as he looks to make an impression.
"It's going to take time, obviously I can do all the work in the world in training but nothing replicates games. The more game time I get, the better I'll be. Ricky has kept his place and he deserves it. I won't go screaming if he's still playing next week because he's done well. I'll just keep plugging away in training and when the gaffer gives me the nod, I'll be ready," he added.
