John Doolan admits his Stanley side need to cut out errors following their 2-1 defeat against Morecambe at the Wham Stadium.

Nelson Khumbeni fired home the opener before a Charlie Brown free-kick was seemingly turned home by Chris Stokes from close range.

Lewis Shipley headed home for Stanley after 89 minutes to set up a grandstand finish, with Morecambe keeper Archie Mair making a couple of saves in added time, but the Shrimps held on for the win.

“I didn’t think there was a lot in it in the first half, both keepers had one save to make and then the first goal is always going to be crucial,” Doolan said.

“We felt it was a foul to us in the build-up but their lad has finished well.

“For the second goal we know Radek (Vitek) has to do better and we have talked to him about this.

“We then showed great character to come back and we came to life but we can’t afford to give teams goals like we have.

“We asked questions and I was happy with the way we finished, and we came so close to an equaliser, but it wasn’t to be.

“It’s a learning curve with a young side but we can’t keep giving sides a lead.”
