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."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
