Plymouth Argyle match reaction from the managerManager Keith Curle spoke to us shortly after the Plymouth defeat on Saturday evening.
"I've said to the players that part and parcel of competitive games is that you can't win them all," he told us. "If you are going to lose today's performance is the way to do it. We've come to a club who are in form and very buoyant, but we've caused them problems.
"We did think we'd equalised at the end when we had those two chances cleared off the line. I was waiting for the linesman's flag to go up but unfortunately it didn't come. We got ourselves into that position by keeping ourselves in the game and credit to the lads for that."
"I've got to be honest and I think we looked slightly disjointed in the first 20 minutes or so," he agreed. "We struggled to come to terms with their shape and half time couldn't come quickly enough. That gave me a chance to change things round to give us a better balance.
"We looked dangerous from set plays and when we got the ball into the box," he continued. "On another day it's a game we would have won.
"To see our 193 fans applauding us, even after a defeat, is very, very pleasing," he said. "Nobody comes to watch Carlisle at Plymouth on a whim. It isn't something you just wake up and decide to do. A lot of effort, commitment, desire and passion goes in to organising yourself to come down here and I think the minimum we could offer them was that level of performance. Hopefully we've sent them home happy - not with the result but with the desire and application we showed."
"I thought our preparation on the way down was spot on," he explained. "We left very early in the morning. We had a game of bingo on the way down and Steven Pattison brought some great prizes which the players were very impressed with.
"Their goal was a bit lucky but sometimes you get that when you're at home. I've got no doubt we will get a few lucky results and goals in our time, but we have to earn the right to have that first of all.
"The lads won't take much picking up ahead of the game on Tuesday," he insisted. "If you're going to lose you need to lose in the right way and I think we did that today. We won't accept defeat every week because that isn't what we're about. We'll get results and we have to build on how we approached this game.
"We've got two home games coming up which gives us a great opportunity. There is a minimum requirement from our players that we don't approach fixtures with fear. We stop the opposition then we play. That won't ever change."
