Accrington boss John Coleman kept his players in the dressing room for around 90 minutes after their 2-0 home loss to Crewe.

Goals from Ajay Leitch-Smith and Byron Moore sent Accrington to defeat in Saturday's League Two clash at the Crown Ground, and Coleman was not happy with his players afterwards.

"We had enough chances to win the game and we haven't. All credit to Crewe they showed good economy but our keeper hasn't had a save to make and we still lost 2-0," he said.

"Our spirit and appetite deserted us the longer the game wore on and the last 20 minutes were as frustrated as I have been in a long time. We ran out of steam dramatically.

"No disrespect to Crewe but we should be beating the likes of Crewe at home, we gave the ball away cheaply and we were wasteful and it's not acceptable.

"We have spent the time analysing our performance and there has been some harsh words said in the dressing room. Perhaps I made some errors in training this week and in team selection but, saying that, we still had enough chances to win the game with the team we put out. It's a learning curve."
