We rode our luck and the fact that Dundee are not that good to lead at half time. If Templeton had scored from the free kick we’d have been home and dry. He was unlucky for the ball to hit the inside of the post and stay out, although if I’d been manager he’d have been subbed by then for an otherwise ineffective performance. Had he not been sent off for two clumsy challenges we’d probably have held on, but the main mistake was subbing Rojano for Obpoke? not Temps.
We struggled to find/know our shape yesterday and with Aberdeen and Rangers up next it’s not looking good. We’ll be worse off if MacKinnon is badly injured, maybe time to get Gills back.
Bright spot was Lewis Ferguson who looks a very good prospect. He looks ready and as WW implied it may be why Docherty was allowed to leave midseason, to allow Lewis to step up.

A poor performance in poor weather played on a poor park refereed by a poor referee made even worse by an 8th minute of injury time winner for Dundee and an apparently serious injury to a key player. Horrible afternoon!

Huge naivety by Templeton to get sent off (for the first time in his career) and by our big new Greek striker to foul the Dundee player for the winner while on the sideline with his back to goal and then turning his back to plead with the referee letting Dundee take a quick free kick, taking 2 Accies player out and leave only 6 outfield players defending.

There was some positives, Tomas continues to play very well and remains without fault despite recent defensive howlers, Want got better as the game went on, Rojano's workrate and despite the mistakes that lead to the winner the big new striker looks promising - strong and surprisingly quick. Negatives is that we can't afford Templeton to be so poor when so reliant on his creativity when missing crawford and Docherty. Dougie also remains a massive problem, constantly out of position in defence and woefully ineffective in attack. If we are to continue to play that formation then that position is crying out for McMann to play it.

Big few days ahead with 2 U20s matches to give Kozo and Miller run outs, get Crawford fit again (and resist any moves for him) and bring in at least one additional defender and one additional midfielder. We've been competitive all season particularly so when we've had a full squad to pick from but there is no doubt that there is huge challenges ahead - if Canning can keep us up this year then it will be an astounding achievement.

Wee bit of an exaggeration is that not? 3rd tier teams get crowds of 300, we get triple that.. even more than that not long ago.

I would say, bottom end of the championship :D

Sorry mate, I will put this down to PTSD from the past 7 days. McMann has perhaps the worst distribution of any of our players. He is prone to making MASSIVE mistakes and is a poor defender. As honkingly one footed as Dougie is, beside the last game he is usually work-rate-till-the-end. He definitely suits more of a attacking midfield role than WB these days. The sooner Canning stops thinking he's fucking Juventus the better.
