McNamara unhappy with draw

McNamara unhappy with draw

Manager Jackie McNamara believes Dundee United should have been awarded a penalty in their 1-1 draw at Partick Thistle.

McNamara felt that midfielder Stuart Armstrong was fouled inside the area by Jordan McMillan as the visitors extended their winless sequence to seven games - despite a first goal for the club from recent arrival Farid El Alagui.

"I felt we had a good opportunity for a penalty. If it was anywhere else the referee would give it," McNamara told BBC Scotland. "I was also disappointed with the challenge on young Andrew Robertson, which didn't even merit a foul.

"In the second half we looked a bit nervous probably because of results of late. We went too deep at times and we stopped passing the ball," he continued. "But credit to Thistle they came at us but disappointed not come away with the three points."
