Docherty Faces Press To Say All Is Well

Docherty Faces Press To Say All Is Well

Assistant manager Tony Docherty did the speaking after Sunday's 2-0 defeat at home to Charlton Athletic.

The Addicks hammered another early nail in the coffin of under pressure manager Derek McInnes, although his assistant did say that the boss was under no pressure.

But McInnes missed the post match press conference after the Robins had slipped to their seventh straight defeat of the season which keeps the side rock bottom of the Championship, needing at least four points plus goals to get out of the relegation places.

Danny Haynes and Michael Morrison scored the goals to give McInnes his latest headache, but according to Docherty, this bad form can be reversed.

'We are not worried about the future because we believe in the players,' he told reporters.

'The club was in a worse position when we took over last season and we battled our way out of it. That will happen again.

'The powers that be at the club have indicated they are behind us and there is no harder working manager than Derek so I am convinced we will turn things around.

'We have the attacking players to score goals and just need to work even harder on the training ground to achieve that elusive clean sheet.'

There were, in my view no positives to take out of the game, the defence is at sixes and sevens and the midfield has to be the poorest in the league. We are so slow on the ball and play sideways and backward. I'm staggered that the midfield deficiencies have not been addressed and I fear that in the end this will cost the manager his job. This was posted by a fan at the game. I'm a City fan living away who rarely gets to see the team. I saw the debacle against Hull on TV recently. I can only assume Lansdown and the board have lost interest and are probably quite happy for City to slip into League One, where it will cost less to run the club. McInnes has been an absolute disaster. Brought in ageing Jocks and journeymen other clubs dont want. When he does have a decent player like Bolasie lets him go to Palace who top the table.

Good for you Redsinbeds, you talk sense, McInnes is no good in the English game, its alright messing about in jockland but down here its a little more competitive and he has not got a clue how to cope. As you say, the midfield issue is an alarming one and unless there is another jock on his way out of scotland in the january transfer window, it will still not be addressed. Landsdown must now show that he has the balls to do the right thing, unless he thinks that a season pressing for promotion from league one is the kind of success the club needs.
