    Roarie Deacon has looked back at Saturdays defeat to Motherwell in disbelief that Dundee finished the game empty handed and has described the Dark Blues performance as ‘Total Domination.’


    The Dee went down one-nil after Motherwell had opened the scoring in the first half, their only shot on target for the whole 90 minutes.

    Dundee would push for the equaliser but despite having plenty of chances, ultimately failed to convert any of them.

    “It feels like someone’s come into my house and taken everything,” said Deacon.

    “I can’t believe we got nothing from the game. That wasn’t what we deserved for the way we played.

    “Everyone dug in and played well. We knew this was a really big game for us.

    “The gaffer came in after the game and didn’t know what to say because to a man we gave everything. It’s devastating.”

    He added: “I got a lot of the ball. The gaffer could see that I was beating my man quite often so he told the boys to keep getting the ball to me. I got a lot of supply and it let me do what I like to – get at defenders one v one.

    “It’s just unfortunate that we couldn’t get the ball in the back of the net.

    “We’ve played Motherwell four times. They haven’t really given us any trouble and we’ve only got a point. We battered them every game. They just sit in and defend for their lives. That’s what they’ve done again.

    “Even in the first half they didn’t create anything apart from their goal.

    “I’ve been told we had 10 shots to their one. It was basically total domination. As I said, it’s devastating that we didn’t take anything from the game.

    “I don’t know how they’ve picked up the three points.”
