Craig Levein says he shares the fans’ frustrations after the goal-less draw with Serbia.
The Scotland boss said that he was content with the performance but believes his side can play better as they prepare for Macedonia at Hampden on Tuesday.
He said: “I can understand the frustration and no-one was more frustrated than me. We wanted to win the match.
“It was interesting that we had our best chances when the two lads and James Forrest came on but the Serbians also had their best chance after the game opened up.
“I looked at it afterwards I was fairly content with the way we played.
“I know we can play better and I can understand the fans’ frustration because we want to win every match.”
The home draw has been looked upon as a negative start to the campaign but Levein said it is now up to the players to make it a positive point.
He said: “If results go out way we can be top of the group tomorrow night, then all of a sudden the point against Serbia becomes important.
“Who knows, come the end of the campaign the point against Serbia might be the one that made all the difference.”
