After the 0-0 draw at St. Mary's, Strachan said: "We played the sort of football I like so there were no complaints there, but we just lacked the goals to go with it.
"It's very hard to score against defensively-minded people.
"But we warmed to win it and dominated the game. We played fluently, had chances and threatened.
"I felt we had a strong case for handball, but overall we dominated the match and I have to be pleased with everything except the result because we should have won."
