McInnes Angry Over Gifted Goals

Bristol City boss Derek McInnes believes that his side gifted Blackburn Rovers the goals that saw his side go down 2-0 at Ewood Park on Saturday.

The under fire City boss was angered at his side's ability to take part in a game that neither club seemed very interested in and still manage to lose out to goals from Danny Murphy and Grant Hanley.

It was the Robins second defeat on the bounce on their travels and the writing looked to be on the wall from the moment Murphy fired home from 25 yards after just seven minutes.

That goal came about because of a poor pass from Mark Wilson and there was even more errors before Grant Hanley grabbed the second goal on the hour mark.

'It didn't feel like a proper cup tie. It was strange, and I felt that we've gifted Blackburn both goals but certainly the first goal is crucial,' McInnes told Sky Sports.

'We give the ball away in an area we know we have to handle the ball well because Blackburn are a counter-attacking team, and want to get you on the back foot.

'Certainly the goal they scored from, we should be dealing with. I felt second half, we made changes to freshen things up.

'We brought three substitutes on quite early but we lose a second goal from the second part of a set play and that's another gift. It's a messy goal. I don't think Blackburn have had to work too hard for both of their goals.'

Maybe if he managed the side better than how he is doing there might not be so much to get angry about. Just a thought!

Rovers did not have to try too hard. Bristol looked like a very poor side.
