Carey Takes The Praise

Carey Takes The Praise

Manager Derek McInnes was full of praise for City's Louis Carey following his testimonial game against local rivals Bristol Rovers on Saturday.

A good turnout and a great atmosphere awaited Carey and the rest of the side who did not let the fans down by trouncing Rovers 3-0.

On the score sheet was Martyn Woolford, Albert Adomah and Stephen Pearson, while the man of the moment, Carey, left the field to a standing ovation shortly after the half time break.

McInnes told the clubs official website: 'He deserved the ovation he got before the game, during the game and after the game.

'I think he was a bit nervous no-one would turn up! But ticket sales in the last couple of days really helped matters.

'It was a fantastic atmosphere. The Rovers fans getting behind their team and the rivalry made it a proper game. We wanted to make sure we put in a performance that merited the game.

'It's more important players feel confident with their fitness and their performances but results can only help that.'

Agreed, nothing like putting one over Rovers to brighten up the week, even if it was only a friendly
