'If It's Football, It's Vital'

It wasn't our day - McNamara

Dundee United boss Jackie McNamara was understandably disappointed following their Scottish Cup final defeat to St Johnstone.

But he also felt his side were particularly unlucky having seen Ryan Dow and Nadir Ciftci both hit the woodwork.

In the end Saints collected their first piece of major silverware courtesy of goals from Steven Anderson and Steven MacLean.

"It just wasn't our day, little thin margins like the post and the bar," McNamara reflected to BBC Scotland. "I think we can play a lot better. We had chances but there's a thin line between winning and losing sometimes.

"The goal going in just before half-time was a real body blow for us but we tried to break them down in the second half and it just wouldn't go for us," he admitted. "I'm disappointed with the goals, especially the first one. We can play better than that. I think we can raise the tempo, which we tried to do more in the second half."
