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

McInnes Happy With Point But Not The Sending Off

Bristol City manager Derek McInnes had to admit that it was a good move by Tony Mowbray to bring on Malaury Martin who helped Middlesbrough earn a 1-1 draw against his side.

The player came on to launch an unstoppable shot into the City net to earn Boro a point against the Robins for the second time this season.

Martin let fly on an angle from distance just after the restart and McInnes knows that the sub made a massive impact on the game.

'We showed a lot of spirit and we deserved at least a point,' he said.

'Martin's was a fantastic strike and we knew he possessed that sort of potential because he did it to us at our place.

'He was the reason Middlesbrough deserved a point. They were better after he came on.'


The City boss was also angry about the way that Ryan McGivern was sent off after he pulled down Boro's Lukas Jutkiewicz on the edge of the box.

The referee was set to wave play on, but the assistant had his flag up so they had a conflab.

The outcome of that was an early bath for the full-back.
