Craigan: We must be ruthless

Monday, November 6, 2017

Under-20s boss Stephen Craigan has called for his players to be “ruthless” after tonight’s 1-1 draw with Dundee.

The youngsters failed to capitalise on a dominant performance at Dens Park and the home side bagged an equaliser against the run of play to grab a draw.

Speaking to MFC TV at full-time, the Northern Irishman reflected on a positive performance and a frustrating result.

I patted them on the back but I wanted them to be ruthless in the second half. I wanted them to go out and take the game away from Dundee.

“We stopped doing what we were doing in the first half and we thought the game became too easy.” Craigan said.

“We started taking extra touches, we started playing as individuals because there were a couple of opportunities when players broke forward and there was other players in better positions to pick them off to get shots off.”

He added: “You always know when you’re one up that you need a second goal and that was the message at half time: yes, I patted them on the back but I wanted them to be ruthless in the second half. I wanted them to go out and take the game away from Dundee.”
