Dek's View - Millwall Home 1-0
City manager Derek McInnes had no doubts that his side were well below their top form when they met Millwall on Tuesday night.
The Robins won the game 1-0 with a goal deep into injury time by striker Nicky Maynard, but arguably a draw would have been a fairer reflection of the game because of the chances that Millwall failed to put away.
But although City were not at their best, its goals that win games and Maynard struck in the 93rd minute.
McInnes admitted: 'We said prior to the game that we'd sacrifice a performance for a result and I think that was possibly the case.'
'I think we've been better in some games over the last few weeks and not got what we thought we'd deserved.
'Other than the opening 20 minutes where I thought we came out right out of the traps and should have got ourselves in front, for me Millwall - being the away team - got far too much of the ball and enjoyed the game too much.
'In the second half there was a real determination at least not to lose the game. We were a bit more solid and I never thought we were going to lose the game.
'We huffed and puffed, and we were nowhere near at our best, but thankfully we kept going to the death and got our goal.
'It's harsh on Millwall, I've got to say that, but we've been the victim of that as well when we've not got quite what we've deserved. I think that was the case tonight. The result was the most important thing.'
