Captain Justin Tipuric didn't hide his disappointment at the Ospreys defeat to the Cardiff Blues at the Liberty Stadium.
The Ospreys suffered a 16-19 defeat in the first of the festive Pro14 Welsh derbies on Saturday night.
Tipuric returned to action for the first time this season for the Ospreys and Tipuric conceded: "We are better than that,"
"Just after half-time, we were on their line and we should have scored. That was probably the game right there.
"We could have pushed on but there is lack of confidence in the team at the moment and we are making mistakes.
"If we had got a try there, it would have been different.
