Steven Davies cancelled out Sone Aluko's early strike but an own goal from Cole Skuse earned the visitors three points - and left McInnes's men in the drop zone.

"We have a sickness bug sweeping the club and more than one player went out there feeling under the weather," McInnes said.

"Stephen McManus complained of illness, but we are short of centre-backs so he had to play, and Steven Davies was sick at half-time.

"We are on a bad run and the only remedy is hard work. But I have 100 per cent faith in the players here and I know we are capable of digging ourselves out of trouble.

"We have to keep believing and that applies to the fans too. It is hard at times like these, but I am convinced we have the squad to turn things around.

"It won't happen overnight, but there is no shortage of commitment from players or staff."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
