Goals from Kyle Benedictus, Steven Milne and Kevin McBride gave the Dark Blues a commanding lead and despite Leigh Griffiths pulling a goal back in injury-time, it was no more than a consolation effort.

"We got what we deserved. We didn't perform to the levels we have been doing of late," said Fenlon.

"We haven't had a performance like that all season so it's difficult to explain.

"Dundee worked harder than us but we have to take it on the chin and it's hard to be overly critical of the players.

"We spoke about it at half-time because we were lucky to go in just 1-0 down as it could have been more. But we didn't start as well as we wanted to and all of a sudden we were 2-0 down and it was all uphill from there on.

"We kept at it but didn't do enough to take anything from the game. We've got to make sure that we concentrate on our own form. We didn't do that today, which was disappointing.

"You don't want to take too much away from Dundee because they've been battling hard all season as a team and deserved this win. They passed the ball well at times and scored some good goals."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
