ACCRINGTON Stanley manager John Coleman admitted he might have been too hasty in replacing youngster Zehn Mohammed at half time in the 4-2 Checkatrade Trophy defeat to Bury on Tuesday night.

The 18-year-old made his first appearance of the season at right back but was replaced at the break with the Reds two goals up.

Bury hit back with four second half goals to progress to the last eight and Coleman, who also fielded Will Wood at left back for his first appearance of the campaign, said: "They (Wood and Mohammed) haven’t played a lot of football and it was going to show.

"They're both young and it's hard to come in and play when you aren't doing so every week.

"I’m possibly regretting taking Zehn off at half time, we just thought he was getting caught over covering and they were getting too much joy down the left side.

"As it was, in the second half all of the joy they got was all through the middle so that could be something for me to learn from."

Coleman's men seemed in control of the Trophy tie as goals from Jordan Clark and Billy Kee put them in the driving seat at the interval.

But Bury subs Dom Telford and Nicky Maynard scored three between them and a late Danny Mayor strike sealed the Shakers' progress.

"I’m frustrated that’s for sure," said Coleman. "I take the responsibility for how we play.

"They were better than us tonight, they were forced to make a few changes and we decided to make a few changes ourselves as well.

"They just handled the ball better, they moved the ball better, they had more energy than us.

"It’s disappointing but I can’t have any complaints – I thought they were better than us on the night. Congratulations to them and I hope they go on to Wembley and lift the trophy."
