    Dundee served up another stinker for the second weekend running when the Dark Blues blew a one-goal lead against Elgin City to exit the Tunnock's Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup.

    Despite sending out a strong team against the part-time League Two club, the players failed to reward the fans with a moral boosting victory after last weeks Derby defeat, much to the annoyance of manager James McPake.

    “It doesn’t matter who you are playing against because that second-half performance is nowhere near acceptable for a club of this size,” said McPake.

    “It was another level of performance that was really poor, to be honest.

    “You ask for a reaction and you’re looking for one, but we didn’t get it.

    “There was no complacency as you saw by our team selection. We went very strong and it just was not good enough.

    “So no, there wasn’t complacency – we just weren’t good enough.

    Fair assessment there was a complete lack of leadership on the pitch.  Against Elgin a bunch of part timers.  Something rotten about the squad.. if I was to speculate a few of them think they should be playing at a higher level and think they just need to pitch up to earn their wage
