"I take full responsibility for that," said Keegan. "Shay only had two weeks to get over a groin injury. He passed every fitness test, but I knew there was a slight risk playing him. He wanted to play and made every effort to get fit. But at half time, he said (his groin) is a little bit achy. Rather than be stupid and say, 'You said you're fit so you can carry on playing', I took him off (against Manchester United).
"And I thought Steve Harper did well in the second half and made a couple of great saves."
