The veteran boss feels the Swiss team can now be considered favourites to progress in the competition, after a disappointing night for the hosts.
"There are worse results, like a defeat or a draw, and even wins by 2-1 or 3-2," he conceded.
"So it is not absolutely a bad result, but it is not very good either. However, I will content myself with it.
"Half of the job was not to concede a goal, and the other part was to score more than one goal. But seeing the quality of our adversary, it would have been a surprise.
"We missed consistency and quality in our game.
"We started the match well but, after the goal, we dropped our pace and our adversary improved their pace.
"The favourite has changed, moreover as Neuchatel can still play better."
Meanwhile, Philippe Mexes and Philippe Violeau are doubtful for Saturday's clash with Paris Saint Germain in Le Championnat.
"For the bad news, we have two injured players too," complained Roux.
"Violeau seems to suffer a little strained muscle and Mexes has pain in his ankle."
