McInnes Blames Player's Mistakes

Derek McInnes has taken charge of his last game as manager of Bristol City after the club decided to call time on the poor showings this season.

But McInnes was in no doubt that the blame for this latest and final defeat lies solely in the hands of the players and their first half performance against Leicester.

Chris Wood netted a first-half hat-trick and Matty James finished the job off by adding number four in the 52nd minute.

The result leaves the Robins rock bottom of the Championship and McInnes was relieved of his duties shortly after the match.
After the game, he told reporters: 'A lot of players let the fans down in the first half.

'The first three goals were self-inflicted. Dean Gerken would say himself that he didn't have the best of games, but there were errors in front of him as well.

'We were too pedestrian in our play and made it easy for a very good Leicester team.

'The performances of Wes Burns and Bobby Reid gave everyone a lift. I thought seriously about starting Wes when Sam Baldock was ruled out by injury and he showed he has the temperament as well as the ability for Championship football.'

Blames everyone but himself, sorry that doesn't wash with me, the buck stops with the manager.
