Dundee missed out on all three-points and moving level on points with second-bottom St Mirren after our goalless draw with livingston yesterday but Jim McIntyre insisted that this point could prove to be vital come may.
The Dark Blues had just been defeated three times on the road in a matter of a week against three of the top sides in the Premiership but were hoping to put that behind them with high-flying Livingston visiting Dens Park.
Despite having the bulk of possession and chances, Dundee were unable to show that killer touch up top and would have to settle for a point.
“It was a really tough game and you know you will be tested with Livingston,” said McIntyre.
“They are having a fantastic season and we had to stand up to a lot of set-plays but we did that.
“We caused them problems but we didn’t have that killer bit at the end of it.
“We showed a lot of endeavour and guts after the last three games we have had. The plus points are we kept a clean sheet and we have picked up another point.
“Who knows how vital that could become the end of the season. We are disappointed we never got the win, but I can’t be disappointed with what the players gave me in terms of work ethic.
“We stood up to a lot of their set-plays, which is a big part of their game, so we’ve come on a lot since playing them when I first came in.”
Even though the Dee are still bottom, yesterdays draw was our fourth match at Dens without defeat and our first clean sheet in four outings.
