Taylor Perry believed that if Cheltenham Town had been more clinical in their Papa John's Trophy group opener at Bristol Rovers that his team could have taken something from the game.
The youngster, on loan from Premier League side Wolves, caught the eye again in a young side as he played the full 90 minutes against the Gas.
He came closest to finding the net on the night, seeing his fizzing strike towards the end of the game hit the bar, and despite losing 2-0 he didn't feel the two teams were too far off each other.
"It was a great test and I thought we were unlucky really," he said.
"On another night we would have been more clinical we could have got something out of the game.
"It's frustrating for me not to score, I had two great chances. The first one is a great save by the 'keeper - I couldn't have put it any more into the corner so fair play to the 'keeper, it was a good save.
"The second one I hit the bar but I'm hoping the goals will come so I've just got to keep threatening the goal and they will come so I'm not worried about that."
