DUNDEE manager Neil McCann has cancelled his team’s day off after they beat Highlands League champions Buckie Thistle just 2-0.
The ‘Dee were comfortable with goals in either half from Faissal El Bakhtaoui and Sofien Moussa; however, McCann deemed the win to be sub-par and would be calling his players in today for more work.
“The attitude just wasn’t there and it was so unlike what we’ve been seeing up until now.
“I cancelled their day off because we were so poor overall.”
Dundee would’ve expected to showcase their talents against a weaker opponent, but this didn’t shine through. McCann had pinpointed the lack of a positive attitude in his side.
“There were only a few with pass marks after that performance. It’s hard to explain where that came from and I don’t think it was so much to do with disrespecting the opposition.
“You only get what you deserve in this game and we’ll speak about why it was like that on Saturday.
“We can’t stroll about like that and think we’re going to win a game outright just because we’re a Premiership team.
“It doesn’t work like that in football and they know that.”
Dundee face Cowdenbeath and Dundee United in the Betfred Cup group stages before they open the curtain of the Ladbrokes Premiership at home to Jim McIntyre’s Ross County on August 5th.
