DINO Maamria says his Brewers side came up short in tonight's 2-1 loss against Carlisle United side away at Brunton Park.

The Brewer's impressive unbeaten eight-game run came to an end after suffering a late defeat against the Blues.

"The players gave everything they've got but I'm disappointed at how we conceded both goals because both goals came when we were really organised.

"The goals came from nothing really. We had comfortable possession, gave the ball away and conceded two counter-attacks.

"I've got no complaints with the result tonight. We came short and we could've knicked a draw but I think they deserved the win and we'll learn from it and move forward," he said.

The Brewers struggled to get a tight hold of the game and the task was made more difficult with players suffering injuries.

"Muzzy (Mustapha Carayol) has been sick for a week so we had to take him off after 55 minutes. To lose Muzzy, Helmy and Kwadwo Baah within 60 minutes of the game disturbed us a little bit and made us lose our way.

"These things happen, I can't complain at the lads as they've been terrific. They gave everything they had tonight and we take it on the chin. Now we rest and recover for a couple of days and make sure we're back ready for Saturday at home."

Despite the loss, Maamria remains pleased with how far his side have come since the turn-around after a poor start to the season.

"We had one point after seven games but it's the football league with a lot of football matches with lots of highs and lows but the mentality has always been to focus on the next game and that's what we do."

The Brewers are in action again on Saturday at home to Leyton Orient.
