  • For What We Put Into the Game We Deserved To Win - McIntyre

    Jim McIntyre Was Full of Praise for His Players After Their Reaction To Falling a Goal Behind To a Soft Penalty Awarded By Referee Bobby Madden In Saturdays 1-1 Draw At Dens Park.

    Cammy Kerr was adjudged to have fouled St Mirren striker Simeon Jackson in the Dundee box with the player then stepping up to convert the penalty.

    Despite feeling aggrieved by this decision, the Dundee players reacted in a way they have failed to do so all season, by refusing to let their heads go down and levelling the score thanks to Kenny Miller’s first goal in a Dundee top.

    It was McIntyre’s side that looked more likely to win this tie but despite a much-improved performance, the team couldn’t find the breakthrough that they deserved.

    "I have watched it back. It is not a penalty for me, definitely not a pen,” said McIntyre.

    "But the referee gave it and the most important thing was my players' response to it.

    "It was very soft so that was disappointing but the reaction of the players was great because it would be easy to feel sorry for ourselves after that because we stated the game well.

    "But credit to the lads, they dug in.

    "For what we put into the game we deserved to win. We had the stronger chances but we couldn't find the net a couple of more times.

    "That was the disappointing factor. But delighted with the players in terms of what they gave us.

    "A far, far better tempo, the way I want to play and got ourselves into some really dangerous positions."

      It looked like the same old hard luck stories of past would be n the cards again when Livingston went ahead just minutes after being reduced to 10-men following a reckless challenge by Shaun Byrne. Dundee did push forward but would go int the break still behind after failing to put a shot on target.

      That however all changed in the second half.

      Andrew Nelson put the teams back on level terms with a fantastic looping header from a Scott Wright cross. Following an awful challenge on substitute Jesse Curran on the edge of the Livi box, Wright would step up with less than ten minutes to play and tucked away a delicious free-kick that even ‘Glorious’ Gary Harkins would have been proud of.  

      This was Dundee’s second victory in five matches and this sees them move above Hamilton in 10th on goal difference.

      Dundee took the lead early on when Genseric Kusunga rallied up the park to slot home his first goal of the season but the Dark Blues were dealt a cruel blow when with minutes to go until the end of the first half, Hearts equalised through a free-kick which unfortunately deflected off of Jesse Currans head, looping into the back of the net.

      Despite this setback, Dundee would claw their way back into the lead when Craig Curran swopped on a defensive mistake to set up Andrew Nelson who hammered home the what would prove to be the winner.
      Hearts came at Dundee but the away team held out despite one or two near misses to claim a valuable win to start 2019 with a bang.

      It was a deserved victory for the Dee. In sharp contrast to the last time both sides met at Dens Park, Hearts took apart a shambolic Dundee side that night but, on this occasion, it was the boys in their white away tops who bullied their counterparts.

      McIntyre was obviously delighted with the win, and also the way his team dealt with the freak Hearts equaliser.

      The Dark Blues served up a lacklustre performance which ensured the St Johnstone headed back to Perth with possibly their easiest three-points of the season.
      With the Dee at the bottom of the table and fighting for survival, the way the home team rolled over and gave into a Saints side right before the opening of the January transfer window has possible added a few more names to the exit list that Jim McIntyre has drawn up.
      “We had four players who made contact with the St Johnstone boys, which is not enough,” said McIntyre.
      “If you are seeing players not committed, not seeing that fighting spirit, and seeing people disappear – because clearly that is what happened – then it’s very frustrating.
      “Everyone knows we have to get players in and this underlines that fact again.
      “The team clearly needs strengthened in January. It’s as clear as day that’s what has to happen.
      “We need to bring a freshness to things and the board know that. They’re not daft.
      “We need to get the right types now and I’m very confident I’ll get the backing we need.”

      McIntyre also confirmed recently that Sofien Moussa, Elton Ngwatala and Kharl Madianga weren’t in his plans and they were all free to find other teams to take the total of players heading for the exit door to six.

      McIntyre said: “We’ve had a couple of chats with some other players. Lewis Spence is another one that’s been told, if he can find a club, we will let him move on.
      “Jean Mendy is another one that we feel won’t get as much game time as he would like. Marcus Haber will also leave as well.”
      “Different jobs have different criteria. I took the Queen of the South job and all I added was two players and never moved anybody on because the group was a good group and they were doing well.
      “So sometimes you don’t need to change things, but quite clearly here we do, and we have got to freshen it up to give ourselves the best chance of staying in this division.”
