But player-coach Phillips says his initial decision to come off his line was correct and that it was just a slight error in completing the task that unfortunately cost him.
'He's progressed massively since I've been a coach with his positional play and shot stopping. I'm really happy with him," Phillips told This is Staffordshire. "He's made a couple of mistakes recently. Coming to claim that cross was a great decision but he just took his eye off the ball for a split second. We will chat about it and practice.
"When keepers make a mistake it can cost a goal and sometimes that's it," he added. "It's happened to me in the past and could again even at my age, you just have to get on with it."
