Accrington Stanley manager John Coleman is "not feeling any pride" over their League Cup loss on penalties to Hull City on Tuesday.
Although the League Two side held the Championship Tigers to a 2-2 draw after extra time, Coleman did not take any positives from the result.
"I'm not feeling any pride, we got beat," he told BBC Radio Lancashire.
"You walk around the ground and people were congratulating you - what for? For getting beat? We're out of the cup."
He added: "We have to get away from the tag of being nearly men and we're not going to congratulate ourselves for getting beat tonight.
"[If you're] proud about getting beat you're in the wrong game."
Accrington drew 1-1 with Luton on the opening weekend of the League Two season, and face Morecambe on Saturday.
