ACCRINGTON Stanley boss John Coleman won't be employing any spying tactics ahead of his side's FA Cup game with Derby County next week.

The Rams booked a trip to the Wham Stadium after beating Premier League side Southampton on penalties in Wednesday's third round replay.

The fourth round tie takes place a week on Saturday in front of the BT Sport cameras.

But Coleman and his staffing team won't be following Leeds United and Marco Bielsa's lead in watching Frank Lampard's side train.

The Football Association and English Football League are investigating the 'spy saga' and Bielsa revealed in a press conference on Wednesday that he has sent a member of staff to watch every team they have played this season train.

That included Derby, who they beat last weekend, when the Rams stopped training after spotting someone watching on, sparking the spy inquiry.

For his part, Coleman feels the moves made by the Leeds boss were wrong.

Asked if he would send someone to the Midlands to check on Derby the Stanley boss said, "No, I think the Leeds manager has done it all for everybody!

"I have nothing against people preparing as much as they can and being thorough, I just think there is a line that shouldn't be crossed ethically and I think that was crossed.

"There is enough information out there and in the public eye without going to extremes. It is not as if it was in a public park.

"Do the work that is available to you and don't overstep the mark. Possibly he has done nothing illegal but morally and ethically I think it is wrong."

Coleman added: "Lots of people make training sessions available to the public so that is different but if you are doing your own work then you expect it to be in the privacy of your own training ground - I would love to have my own training ground to be honest!

"He is not the only fella who I think has got it wrong. There are lots of players who leak team news and tactics when they spit the dummy out or fall out with the manager so this has been an ongoing thing for a few years now. It leaves a nasty taste in your mouth.

"My own personal opinion is that it is wrong so I will leave it at that."
