McCall's side had lost their three previous Clydesdale Bank Premier League games at Fir Park and they had to battle back from a deficit to claim a share of the spoils, drawing level when Michael Higdon scored in first-half injury-time.

"We just can't buy a win at home at the moment. I don't think we played as well today as we have done in recent home games and yet we get a point for it.

"We just need to score the first goal at home. We had a lot of possession and opportunities where we probably should go ahead, and they score on the break.

"You could feel a little bit of anxiety maybe. If we had come in (behind) at half-time it would have been tough so to get the goal was good.

"The second half we huffed and puffed and I think you have got to credit Dundee. They had something to hold on to and they certainly held on to it."

Higdon had a goal disallowed three minutes from time for offside, and McCall added: "That's just the way things are going. I'm not making excuses. We could have probably won 2-1, a scrappy game, and come in and we would have been pleased just to get a victory at home.

"I thought in the last 20 minutes, with the exertions of Wednesday night, we looked a little bit leggy. But it's another day slipped by without a home victory.

"Frustrating is the word. We did okay but okay wasn't enough to win us the game."

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
