Sofien Moussa scored two penalties as Dundee opened up a four point gap between themselves and bottom club Partick Thistle with a 3-0 win at Dens Park in the SPFL Ladbrokes Premiership. Mark O'Hara's fourth goal in five matches made the scoreline comfortable, as Thistle remain at the foot of the table.
A Sofien Moussa double, both from penalties, and another strike from midfielder Mark O’Hara gave Dundee a much needed 3-0 victory after suffering back-to-back defeats against Aberdeen and Hearts last week.
“I’m smiling. I didn’t hide that I was so disappointed (on Tuesday), I’ve said it in a load of interviews about a lack of application and responsibility,” said McCann.
“I think we showed that when the application is right, we look a right good side so I am really happy with the performance and some really good individual performances in a great team performance.
“The main thing for me was the energy levels. We broke forward with unbelievable good purpose and that put Partick on the back foot.”
“It was total team performance.
“From how poor we were on Tuesday night, to flip it to how good we were says a lot about them.”
Dundee’s victory along with Ross County’s defeat seen the Dee move back out of the bottom two, sitting two points behind Hamilton who are ninth
