Derek Adams admits the nature of Peterborough United’s goals on Saturday is a source of great disappointment.
Jack Taylor's deflected effort from distance opened the scoring for United on 12 minutes, before Joe Ward doubled their advantage from a free kick 10 minutes later.
Kwame Poku rounded off the scoring on 29 minutes, and the gaffer admits the way the goals were conceded is greatly disappointing.
"We're extremely disappointed to lose the goals in the manner we did," he said.
"Two deflected shots go in, one goes through the goalkeeper's legs, it makes it a very difficult task after 29 minutes of the game.
"There wasn't a lot in the match at that moment in time, and we've got an uphill task after that to get back into the match.
"Without Peterborough doing too much, they're three nil ahead in the match."
The Shrimps weren't without chances of their own, with Farrend Rawson and Liam Shaw most notably coming close with headers inside the box.
Adams says, despite positive glimpses, his side just weren't able to overcome The Posh.
He added: "We had a lot of good play at times, we just couldn't get the better of them.
"We probably needed one in the first half to get back to 3-1 before half time, and we had moments where we could've done that.
"We had the forward players who were creating chances and getting into the box, but unfortunately for us, we haven't been able to get the goals."
