Mackay sick at missing chance
Updated Sunday, 30th October 2005
Livingston defender David Mackay has admitted he missed a great chance to give his side their first Bank of Scotland Premier League win and lift them off the bottom of the table
"I just saw the ball coming to the far post and the header was there," said Mackay. "But a Falkirk defender did enough to put me off. I have not scored for two or three years so I was due one. I am gutted."
He added: "I did feel a nudge but I still was expected to score. I don't think I should have got a penalty."
Snodgrass was the toast of his dressing room again following his midweek double against Rangers as his team battled back from two goals down to hold Alex McLeish's men.
The draw at the Falkirk Stadium was enough to bring them level on points with Dunfermline but Mackay is backing the 18-year-old striker to have a big future.
"That was a great finish from him," he said. "But after what he's done this week I'm sure he will keep his feet on the ground and not get carried away.
"He is a quality player and you see him do that in training every day. He is going to have a great future.
"He has only just turned 18 and is a great lad in the dressing room. Hopefully he will keep banging in the goals for us."
