DAVID Hopkin has blasted defensive errors that cost his Morton side in Friday night’s defeat away to Dundee.

A Cameron Salkeld strike wasn’t enough to seal a point as Jamie Ness secured victory with ten minutes remaining with a sweeping finish into the top right corner.

The result left Ton boss Hopkin seething after a positive first half performance and he has called for his players to cut out the defensive lapses.

He told the Tele: “It’s frustrating because I thought first half we were excellent and limited Dundee to very little.

“We went into half-time at 0-0, which was a positive for us, but then we concede a very poor goal from the corner that we should have dealt with and we’re 1-0 down.

“It was a great ball across for Cammy Salkeld for 1-1 but the second goal just isn’t good enough, through nothing but poor defending.

“We kept going and again we probably deserved a point. We were well organised and hard to play against.

“I thought even in the first half we kept the ball well.

“It’s been a tough week, we’ve played against three top teams in six days and the players are starting to understand what I want from them.

“It’s all about people starting to man up and make sure we stop conceding poor goals.”
