Interim Inverness manager Neil McCann has disclosed that his side deserved to lose to Dundee on Tuesday night. Inverness lost 2-1 at Dens Park, and the manager had no complaints about the outcome of the game.

“We didn’t deserve anything from the game to be honest. First 45 minutes in particular we were second to every ball” he said.

McCann feels that players didn’t perform as well as they did in the recent 1-1 draw with Hearts.

“Didn’t show application”

“Didn’t win first ball, didn’t win second. Just didn’t show application levels that they showed against Hearts on Friday night. And when you do that in this division, it’s hard. You give yourselves a real uphill task at two-nil down” McCann stated.

Inverness were given a lifeline in the game thanks to a Nikolay Todorov goal, and the same player also missed a chance to score a late equaliser. McCann still wouldn’t have been happy with the performance of the team if the game had ended 2-2.

“Got out of jail”

“He scores a great goal, and he had a chance at the end as well. And if we had scored that goal, I have to be honest, we would have got out of jail getting a point” McCann stated.

The Inverness boss admitted that his players were angry in the dressing room after the game, as they felt they didn’t do themselves justice.

“They are angry with themselves in there, because they know that they are better than that. I expect better than that, we’ve worked really hard on the training field.”

Inverness are back in action this weekend when they take on Alloa.
