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."

resumably, you wanted to keep the version of Downing that was never seen at Anfield. The one that another manager has managed to re-create. The one you passed over.

he uber commercialisation of the 90s has led to the point where this overly familar, try hard, jolly hockey sticks type fronts up a major football match on a weekly basis. Unlike the great presenters of yesteryear, I doubt he would even recognise the scent of Brut.
