While he was frustrated with the defeat, Baird, who started at centre-half, insists next weekâ€™s Barclays Premier League opener with Norwich City bore much more importance.
â€śObviously itâ€™s disappointing to lose,â€ť he told the official website. â€śWe were excellent in the first half and could have been two or three up. Iâ€™m disappointed we didnâ€™t get more goals and we were sloppy in the second half and it cost us.
â€śWeâ€™re all disappointed but Iâ€™d rather lose this one than lose next week. Weâ€™ll go into next week looking for the three points to start us off.â€ť
