'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Should Have A Point says McInnes

City manager Derek McInnes felt that his side could have pinched something from the game against Reading on Saturday.

Its true to say that the Robins were by no means outplayed although the best of the chances did fall for the home team.

And David James did his part, saving two penalties, had it not been for terrible bad luck with the rebound falling for Jason Roberts again, he would have earned City a point

McInnes said: 'On another day we might have pinched something from that.

'There were elements where we controlled the game and we had opportunities to score in the first half.

'I thought the first penalty decision was really harsh. Jason had his arm round our lad's neck.

'They then got a second which was more like a penalty. The Reading lad stood still and let our man run into him.

'David James did great to save the two penalties and even when Roberts scored from the rebound from the first he hasn't exactly rifled it in.

'The performance for me showed a lot to be pleased about. There was plenty of commitment and drive.

'Nicky Maynard didn't start because we won last week and I kept the same front three. But there may be bids for him before the deadline closes and if there are then we will deal with it.'

Personally, I thought we were good for a point until the stupid ref went loopy
