McInnes Happy Enough With Away Point.

McInnes Happy Enough With Away Point.

Bristol City boss Derek McInnes was not too down about watching his side fritter away a two goal league to pick up just the one point from the trip to St Andrews.

McInnes saw the point as one he would have been pleased with getting ahead of the kick off so you will hear no complaints from him.

The Robins got off to a flyer, taking the lead after just 21 minutes and then soon increasing that to 2-0 with an effort from Jonathan Stead.

But Marlon King reduced the arrears before half-time and Nikola Zigic netted the leveller just past the hour mark.

However, McInnes, whose side are unbeaten in five, said: >'In our situation it was a point gained. Before the game we thought a point would be a good result coming to a place like Birmingham.

'They have only lost one league home game this season. We got ourselves into a very good position to win with two terrific goals with a fantastic first-half performance.

'In our position we have to be upbeat although it was disappointing not to get all three points. We now have to make sure we build upon this result and keep our unbeaten run going.

'Against Birmingham we showed confidence and assurance with the ball and we got a good result.'
