More home misery for McInnes

Bristol City manager Derek McInnes was less than impressed by his side's performance as they slumped to a 2-0 home defeat to Derby.

Derek McInnes: Another unhappy afternoon for Bristol City manager

First-half goals from Jeff Hendrick and Craig Bryson left the Robins with only two points to show from their last nine games at Ashton Gate, where they have not won since August.

McInnes said: "It doesn't matter what formation you employ if you fail to defend crosses as we did for Derby's two goals.

"We also have a problem at the moment with being vulnerable after we concede.

"By taking their chances, Derby earned the right to get 11 men behind the ball in the second half and that made it very difficult for us.

"If we had taken our chances it would have been a different story. Liam Fontaine and Sam Baldock should have scored and there were other opportunities."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
