Parker shrugged off claims that confidence is proving an issue in his players following Saturday's slender defeat.
“I don't think confidence is proving an issue," he started. “The dynamics of this division and what this division brings show we need to learn, and we need to pick up goals. You never want to concede goals. Today for the first 15 minutes we showed pure domination. We lacked a real threat, but we had a control, the first time they go forward, they score. It was the same in the second half, we came out of the blocks well and then it's 2-0."
Parker acknowledged the fact that his side needed more threat in the final third but praised the control he saw from his team.
“We were playing against a team who are happy without the ball at times. It became very difficult for us. We need to learn from how this game panned out. We had a dominance but at times in the final third we lacked shots and a dynamic. We hit the post twice but that's how I saw today."
