Rovers midfielder Corry Evans admitted after the game that the side wasn't good enough on the day in the 2-0 defeat at Plymouth Argyle.
Evans made a return from injury as a second half substitute, but first half goals from Ruben Lameiras and Ryan Taylor already ensured Corry and Rovers had a mountain to clim by the time he entered the action.
And Evans was left ruing a surprinsingly lacklustre Rovers display down in deepest Devon.
“It’s very frustrating. We knew it would be a difficult game. We never lived up to the standards we’ve set ourselves," The Northern Irishman sawid honestly to iFollow Rovers after the game.
“They defended their box really well and all the balls into the box were dealt with. We needed to find a way to break them down but we couldn’t do it.
“We’ve been able to do our job most of the time this season but it was a bad day at the office. We need to look forward to next week and make sure we get back to winning ways."
And Evans wants another unbeaten run - or even better, a winning run - to begin as one unbeaten run ends, ahead of the home clash with Oldham next weekend.
“We need to go again and go unbeaten for the rest of the season. The pace that Wigan and Shrewsbury are setting, we need to be on their heels," the 27-year-old added.
“That’s what it will take and the lads know that as well. It’ll be a tough challenge but we know we can achieve it.
“It’s important to dust ourselves down and ready ourselves for the upcoming games."
