Notts County will learn from the mistakes made in Saturday's 4-2 loss to Peterborough United, says first team manager Chris Kiwomya.
Although the Magpies took the lead through a Dean Leacock header, Posh quickly got onto level terms from a set-piece.
Three more blows were dealt after the break and Yoann Arquin's late consolation from the spot was too little too late.
Kiwomya had outlined where he thought Notts could punish Peterborough ahead of the match but felt that his team did not exploit those areas often enough.
"I'm disappointed because I didn't think we got the ball into the wide areas, which is what I asked them to do before the game and during the week," he said.
"You could see when we did get into the wide areas with Muzza (Mustapha Dumbuya), we created the goal.
"You've got to stay in the game against these teams and exploit their weaknesses which was down the wide areas.
"We didn't do that well enough; we tried but when you go against these teams you've got to have a little bit of know-how of how to beat them.
"We've got to dust ourselves down, get back on, look at it and see what we can put right."
