Ray Farningham: Dundee assistant boss praises player despite home defeat to Kilm

Steve Simonsen put the hosts behind after just four minutes, but the Dens Park outfit equalised through Ryan Conroy just five minutes later.

A Lee Johnson strike followed by a Sammy Clingan shot made it three for Kilmarnock, but despite a second goal for Dundee from Mark Stewart, it was not enough to prevent defeat for the recently-relegated side.

In spite of the scoreline, Dens' assistant boss Farningham praised his players for their approach.

"I thought we did well in the first half and were slightly the better side. To lose the game was disappointing," he said.

"We had been on such a good run and maybe last week knocked the stuffing out of the players a wee bit. There was a bit of slackness around the team today, which had been missing in the previous games.

"We can't fault the lads. They've given their all over the last few months and at 3-1 down they could have chucked in the towel but they kept on going and we could have got something out of the game.

"But they are disappointed because they wanted to win our last home game of the season in front of our own fans."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
