We’ve enough to stay up: McCann
Chances came and chances went but, once more, the Steelmen emerged with the points as they beat the Dark Blues for the fourth time this campaign.
The Dens gaffer was unhappy, too, with referee Nick Walsh after he ignored fourth official Willie Collum’s shout of ‘handball’ moments before ’Well won the free-kick that led to the winning goal.
Neil said: “I am angry, and I use that word after hearing one of our country’s top officials, who has officiated at the top level, say to the referee ‘handball, handball’ and not only repeat it but give the signal across to say it.
“That was ignored by the match official who is on the opposite side, that just beggars belief.
“If he sees it and I spoke to him, he says he’s confident enough it hit his chest.
“I’m not sure how he can be if he has one of the top officials telling him it’s a handball.
“After the game it eats away and it cost us on Saturday because they scored direct from that free-kick.”
The numerous missed opportunities, though, was what really frustrated the Dark Blues boss with Partick’s draw cutting the gap between Dundee and 11th to four points.
He added: “The league has tightened up but we weren’t getting anything handed out on Saturday regardless of the result.
“It might have put us in a wee bit better position but there was nothing being decided.
“I’ve seen enough from my team – if we just take those chances, something that has plagued us but we go again.”
There was real worry for centre-back Genseric Kusunga after he was stretchered off before the second half even kicked off.
“Thankfully, the over-riding feeling is I’m happy that he seems OK because it’s not great when you see a player just sitting down.
“He had chest pains and was struggling to breathe. I think it was maybe a result from an impact he got on the goal where he took one on the chest. The doctor seems satisfied that it wasn’t anything more sinister.”
NEIL McCann says he’s seen enough from his Dundee team to suggest they’ll be safe from the drop despite watching them lose 2-1 at Motherwell.
