Dundee’s Cammy Kerr admits side have to cut out mistakes at both ends of the park

Cammy Kerr.

Dundee’s Cammy Kerr admits his side have to cut out the errors that are costing them dear both in attack and defence.

The Dark Blues created and spurned a whole host of chances against Motherwell on Saturday while conceding two calamitous goals that ultimately cost them dear.

Exiting the Scottish Cup at the fifth-round stage was a bitter pill to swallow for Neil McCann’s men especially after so much emphasis had been placed on doing well in the competition this season.

However, Kerr insists the team have no time to feel sorry for themselves as all their attention turns to the Premiership and a vitally-important match at Kilmarnock tomorrow night.

The full-back said: “I am gutted to go out of the cup.

“We probably did enough to win or at least take something from the game in terms of the chances we made.

“However, we can keep going on about the opportunities we are creating but the goals we lost were poor and obviously cost us.

“If you don’t take your chances at this level you will get punished but it was so frustrating to then see them going up the other end and score the second goal.

“The manager was again not happy.

“He gets his point across in the right way but we know ourselves that there were things we did in the game that weren’t right. We need to cut out the mistakes.”

Kerr added: “The fans were frustrated as well and I can understand that completely.

“But bar the two mistakes, mishaps, I didn’t think Motherwell created much in the game. I don’t think they really cut us open.

“I think it was a stuffy game but there wasn’t too much in it to see us defeated the way we did.

“We have big games coming up in the league and we need to turn our attention straight to Tuesday at Kilmarnock which is a really tough place to go to.

“We just have to try to pick up three points.

“We have to be solid. We had that the last couple of months but we haven’t been that way in the last two games.

“We have made mistakes and conceded quite a few so that is something we have to eradicate.”
