Whilst pleased with his Partick Thistle side’s performance against Dundee, Ian McCall says it’s all in vain if you don’t get a result.

The Jags fell to a 1-0 defeat at home to the Dee. A first half Paul McGowan strike was all it took as the Firhill outfit’s mini renaissance was temporarily halted in Maryhill.

It leaves them ninth in the Championship over Christmas, a point away from safety after eighth placed Morton got a victory over bottom side Alloa.

McCall was pleased with what his side put into the game but was left to rue missed chances by the full time whistle.

RONALDO NEEDS TO STOP WHINING.

“I don’t think we did enough to win, but we certainly didn’t deserve to lose,” he said. “It’s the nature of this league. They got their goal in the first half, we had a couple of great chances.

“I was pleased with the effort and how we went about things. We didn’t really do enough in the second half but we shouldn’t have been 1-0 down at the break.

“It doesn’t matter how you play, it’s about results. I’m really disappointed for the punters because they were right behind us.

“We just need to kick on from here. I just don’t think we had enough players in goal scoring positions to be honest. I think we huffed and puffed in the second half.”
