ACCRINGTON Stanley fielded a much-changed side for their Papa John's Trophy defeat at Lincoln City, but manager John Coleman is still looking for a reaction from those who come back in to face Gillingham tomorrow.

Coleman said they would analyse the performance and what went against them in the 4-0 loss at the LNER Stadium, which cut short the coveted path to Wembley having reached the last 16, but he insists they will not dwell on it.

"We'll never get carried away winning or losing, but there has to be a reaction to certain things and you have to learn - both good and bad," said the Stanley boss, who made 10 changes to his starting XI from the League One win at Charlton Athletic.

“We can't park it, we have to break it down and analyse what went wrong. We do a lot of work tactically so all the players knew their jobs but it didn’t quite work on Tuesday.

“They were a lot sharper and stronger than us, they were better than us.

“I don’t want to detract from our playing squad because we have got good players in there. Possibly because they haven’t played for a while and certainly haven't played together showed but we know we have got to be better all over the park and we will strive to do that.

"When things are going well you have to try to replicate that, when things aren't going well you have to try to put plans and mechanisms in place to make them go better.

"We've been doing that most of the season."

Coleman added: “We still wanted to win the game and people might say making 10 changes that we didn’t want to but you can see by some of the reactions of the players that we wanted to win.

“However, we are mindful of the fact that we have a massive game on Saturday and this is now our priority so we will learn from what happened on Tuesday but we won’t dwell on it, we will focus on getting it right for Saturday.”
