A late penalty miss by Kenny Miller could turn out to be very costly for Dundee.
Kilmarnock goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann pulled off a 95th minute save to deprive the Dens Park side of a precious three points in a game which ended 2-2.
Combined with Hamilton’s 2-1 win over St Johnstone, Dundee now trail Hamilton by three points in the table.
Jim McIntyre’s side do still have the cushion of a three point lead over bottom of the table St Mirren.
It is the second game in a row to provide injury time heartache for the Dee. They conceded a late equalizer to Hamilton in a 1-1 draw last Saturday.
If Dundee had managed to get six points rather than two their situation would look a lot better.
But they failed to close out either game, and remain mired in a relegation battle.
It remains to be seen how this will affect Dundee going forward, but the result must have been a sickener for the club’s fans.
Kenny Miller will get over the miss as he has seen and done it all in the game. How his team-mates react will be vital going forward.
To make matters worse, Dundee twice lead in the game, but still couldn’t close it out.
Normally a point against a good Kilmarnock side would be a decent result for Dundee. Not in this instance though.
