After securing their first clean sheet of the season and Dundee’s first at home since December last year, Neil McCann has now set his sights on sorting out the problem at the other side of the pitch, scoring goals.
Saturdays goalless draw may have been a drab affair for the punters that paid to get in but it did end Dundee’s recent run of defeats against an Ayrshire side who have recently turned the corner since the arrival of new manager Steve Clarke.
He said: “I felt on Saturday, against a real good side in terms of their organisation to go away from home and get big results with Jones and Boyd up front, we contained them for a lot of the game.
“We’re pleased with the point, I’m really happy for them because they’ve been working hard to keep a clean sheet.
“Now we need to start building and scoring goals that get us three points rather than one.”
Meanwhile, skipper Darren O’Dea is set to serve a two-match suspension after being given a red card near the end of Saturdays match with McCann confessing he had no complaints about his captain getting an early bath.
So far this season in the league, O’Dea has picked up eight yellow and two red cards.
