Alex Dyer says his Kilmarnock side didn’t do enough to win against St Johnstone as they went down 1-0 in Perth – but reckons Killie should have had a spot kick.
Few chances were had on a very foggy night at McDiarmid Park, Killie having the better of them in the first half with Kirk Broadfoot hitting the bar from a corner before a contentious decision.
A goalmouth scramble from a Chris Burke corner eventually lead to the ball heading towards goal, the away team claiming Saints man Danny McNamara blocked it hitting the net with his arm.
The Irishman would go on to score the winner 20 minutes from time following a St Johnstone cross. Dyer concedes his team didn’t do enough for a win but wonders whether they should have had a penalty.
“I’m very disappointed,” said Dyer. “We knew it was going to be a tough game but we didn’t do enough to win it. We had a couple of opportunities.
“We hit the bar and had one off the line which I thought was handball and even their goal hit the lad on the arm. We should have had a penalty. It wasn’t our night.
“But we go back and we train and look forward to the next game.
“We never say it’s hard luck. The players are honest enough to know that we didn’t do enough to win. I don’t think we deserved to lose but it happens.
“We have to dust ourselves down and go again.”
