Football: We need to find road to goal; SPL.

Byline: By Euan McArthur

SCOTT WILSON admitted Dunfermline had only themselves to blame for losing to Ross Tokely's late strike.

The Pars defender pulled no punches after Jim Leishman's side again failed to score away from home.

Wilson said: "The way the game was shaping up it was always going to take a goal like that to win it. We dug our own grave because we didn't really play well and the goal we lost sums us up just now.

"We might have taken a draw beforehand but after the first half I thought if we could raise our game we could get a result."

Wilson insisted the Fifers need to start supplying strikers Jim Hamilton and Stevie Crawford with chances to ease the pressure on those at the back.

He said: "There's still a long way to go and we've got a good enough squad to climb the league.

"But with results like this we'll not be climbing anywhere. We have problems which we've got to sort out.

"Again, I don't think we created too many openings and we lost a silly goal.

"I don't think we're giving the guys up front proper service so we have to address that. I definitely think Inverness were there for the taking but we didn't turn up and maybe we got what we deserved."

Wilson was left shell-shocked after Pars sub Scott Muirhead helped Tokely's effort on his way past a helpless Dorus de Vries who had thwarted Graham Bayne with a wonder save minutes earlier.

Wilson added: "It's sickening because I was right behind it and it was going wide until it hit Scott and spun in.

"I don't know why we were so flat. We started terribly when we beat St Mirren the previous week but stepped it up in the second half to get the three points.

"It was just one of those games that had 0-0 written all over it and we didn't create that many chances overall."


BAD BLOOD: Jim Hamilton had a frustrating day playing up front for Dunfermline and this clash with Darren Dods left the Caley Thistle defender bleeding and earned the Pars man a yellow card from the referee
