Manager Derek McInnes admitted his Bristol City side were far from at their best, despite seeing Nicky Maynardscore the only goal of the game to secure a vital three points for his side against Millwall at Ashton Gate.

City struggled to find any form of fluency for much of the 90 minutes, and had to survive numerous chances squandered by their south London guests.

In the end, Maynard popped up in the third minute of second-half stoppage time to slide the ball beyond Steve Mildenhall in the Millwall goal, and McInnes admitted: "We said prior to the game that we'd sacrifice a performance for a result and I think that was possibly the case."
