Good to see CW getting back to full fitness and playing again.
Still no score yet
With just sixteen minutes left to play, the Dark Blues were ahead and looked good for the win with the man advantage but they surrendered the lead and eventually the points by allowing Killie to not only equalise by also grab the winner.
"Only the players can explain why they're not doing their jobs properly," McCann said.
"They've been told and they will be told repeatedly again that it's unacceptable.
"We're 2-1 up and a man up, I've taken off a more attacking player for a defensive player, but for some unknown reason we can't manage that situation.
"We've just got players running and I'm screaming at them from the touchline. We shouldn't lose that game."
McCann was quick to point out that he felt Glen Kamara was fouled in the lead up to Kilmarnock’s winner but refused to blame the match official for Dundee throwing away the three points.
"Glen Kamara is fouled right in front of us, Nick doesn't give it, and he waltzes through, the boy," McCann said.
"I'm not happy with [the referee] not giving a free kick when Kamara was fouled. Other than that, both managers might have a few grumbles. [But] it wasn't the referee's faulty we lost the game."
Dundee lose to Kilmarnock at Rugby Park.

Kilmarnock 3 - 2 Dundee
After seeing bottom of the table Ross County dismantle Dundee at Dens then gift wrapping the Scottish Cup tie to Motherwell last Saturday, the Dens men are looking to bounce back with a victory against in-form Kilmarnock to not only give themselves a major boost, but also the fans.
Tonight’s opposition are going to prove a tough obstacle though. Since we last met Killie in the league nine games ago, they have won an impressive five, drawn two and only lost two. Something that Neil McCann is fulyl aware of.
“They look as if they have a real understanding in how they play and a belief in what they are doing is right. The results certainly reflect that.
“Steve has a way of playing and a structure and it has been really effective for them. Kilmarnock are a counter-attacking side who get really compact and then try to hit on the break.
“So we have shaped up in a way that will allow us to play our own game but respect the opposition as we always do.”
The Dark Blue fans could very well see the inclusion of surprise signing Steven Caulker in the defence for tonight.
“Steven has a chance of playing but to what degree I’ll decide on that later,” said McCann
“Josh Meekings is right on the edge as well. He was close on Saturday and he is even closer now.
“However, Marcus Haber is out as he has hurt his back again.
“Julen Etxabeguren and Matty Henvey are still out but the latter is making good progress and should return to training next Monday.”
