A rare goal from central defender Troy Brown was enough to give the Robins the three points in a game they dominated for long spells.

Yates said: "It was a good performance and we bossed the game for long periods. I think we deserved the win but we could have made it easier for ourselves.

"I had a little moan at the lads at half time because we missed three or four really good opportunities and that could have cost us.

"We need to be more ruthless and we were nearly made to pay because they had a great chance to open the scoring late in the game but we got away with it and we got the win we needed with what was a good away performance overall.

"Fortunately we are talking about a win which is what we were after and that is what was important. We are getting stronger all the time and the group is really coming together and I am hoping we can kick on now over the important Christmas period and into the new year.

"We were all disappointed with the start we made this season and we had to make some changes but those changes are looking as if they are paying off now and we are looking a decent unit. We are not conceding the crazy goals that we did earlier in the season and we just need to be more ruthless at the other end of the field now."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
