LEWIS Strapp says he and his team-mates need to learn from Saturday’s humiliation at the hands of Dundee United — then put the defeat behind them.

The young full-back believes that the Ton can prove a point by bouncing back this weekend at home against Dunfermline Athletic.

He told the Tele: “Nobody wants to lose 6-0, it was a really tough game to be a part of.

“Nobody was happy with the result. There’s nothing more to say about it, so we need to put it behind us and move on.

“We knew before the game that they were a team full of Premier League quality players but 6-0 is just sickening. You need to dust yourself down though and move on from it.

“You learn a lot more from losing 6-0 than by winning 6-0 if you want to try and take a positive from the game.

“We’ve got a good chance to bounce back being at home this weekend. It means that we can improve on that poor performance and maybe we can even prove a point to ourselves.

“It’ll be a good opportunity to show the character we have again — and we need to go and do well on Saturday.

“Hopefully we can tighten things up again and then push on.”
