Derek McInnes: Thrilled with 'best performance of the season'

Albert Adomah had put the Robins ahead only for Ishmael Miller to stab home from a corner.

Then at 1-1 Grant Leadbitter's corner was spilt by City goalkeeper Tom Heaton and seemed to go over the line before being hooked clear - and the decision was 'no goal'.

And City scored two more on the counter thanks to late strikes from Stephen Pearson and substitute Steven Davies.

McInnes said: "We played well at times in the early part of the campaign but that was as good a performance as we have put in all season. I was delighted for the lads and for the supporters.

"We expected Middlesbrough to attack us with the two men up front and we knew it would be tough, we knew we would have to work hard and keep our shape.

"We did that. I thought we contained them well and I thought we controlled the game for long spells and with that came a bit of confidence.

"That showed in how we attacked. We scored three very good goals. We got into some very good areas and created some good chances."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

W

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
