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."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
