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."

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.
