Jackie McNamara: 'We should have killed it off'

Jackie McNamara believes that his Dundee United side should have killed off Partick Thistle in the Scottish Premiership.

Dundee United manager Jackie McNamara has criticised his players for failing to kill off Partick Thistle at Firhill Stadium after taking the lead.

Gary Fraser cancelled out Farid El Alagui's goal for the visitors, leaving United without a win in seven games in the Scottish Premiership.

"I thought Thistle put us under a lot of pressure second half and we stopped passing the ball," Sporting Life quotes McNamara as saying.

"I also think that we should have killed it off. Stuart [Armstrong]'s chance - that kills the game off and settles everybody down.

"I thought at times we were maybe a wee bit nervous and were a bit too deep, which made it hard for the forwards to go and press the ball, so it's something we need to work on in getting up the park."

Dundee are back in action next weekend when they face St Mirren in the Scottish Cup.
