Derek brings a winning touch

Have your say

BRISTOL City manager Derek McInnes has vowed his resurgent side will not get carried away by recent improvements.

City claimed their fourth win from five games since McInnes took over with an 2-0 victory over leaders Southampton.

Efforts from Albert Adomah and Nicky Maynard proved enough for the home side although they remain in the relegation zone. McInnes said: “There is a confidence about our play now and everyone is contributing. But we are aware that a slap in the face could be just around the corner and we need to continue the same way at Watford on Tuesday.”

Saints boss Nigel Adkins was not too critical of his side despite seeing their lead at the summit trimmed to two points. “We may have lost to two deflections, but you have to give Bristol City a lot of credit. They are on a good run at the moment and the ground was really buzzing.”
