B Team boss Matt Craddock was disappointed his side didn’t “put the game to bed” following their 2-2 draw against Stockport in the Central League Cup.

Ben Andreucci and Noah Halford were both on target for the young Whites, but the hosts hit back through Nic Bollado and Luke Partington to claim a point.

Craddock’s side will also face Huddersfield, Rotherham and Salford in the group stage as they aim to reach the knockout rounds.

“The frustrating thing is we didn’t capitalise on the periods of really good play we had,” he told the club website.

“We had some long periods of really good football and we probably should put the game to bed. And when you don’t, they get back in it.

“I’m frustrated that we gave away the win, but more frustrated that we didn’t capitalise on the amount of good play we had.

“When you go 2-0 up and then it goes 2-1, the lads got a bit nervous and then we they equalised they probably showed their inexperience.

“That led to 15-20 minutes of a bit of a wobble and some nervy moments, but with a bit of a change of shape and getting some numbers up the pitch we finished strong and could have nicked it at the end.”

Andreucci continued his promising start to life at Wanderers, finding the bottom corner with a tidy finish after some good work by Wes Frimpong.

Halford got himself in the right place at the right time to fire home from close range after Arran Pettifer’s free kick had caused problems in the box.

After the hosts had got back on level terms, Finlay Lockett nearly found a winner in the final stages but was denied by a smart stop by Jordan Smith.

Luke Hutchinson, Luke Matheson, Nelson Khumbeni and Matt Tweedley were all absent from the squad after training with the first team.
