With Yeovil seeing out a 1-0 win, earned thanks to John Lundstram's first Football League goal, the visitors' frustration boiled over in dramatic fashion with Kirk Broadfoot and Gary MacKenzie picking up second yellow cards either side of Ricardo Fuller's red for an attempted headbutt on Luke Ayling.

"They've let everyone down," Ince said. "They've let the fans down and the club down.

"Our main two centre-halves, our stalwarts, are now out for bloody Derby and Ricky (Fuller) did something stupid.

"They are experienced players and they've cost me here and for the next couple of games.

"They've got to understand the problems it caused given how well we've done this season and with the games we've got coming up.

"We should know better and they'll be dealt with. I will take further action with them for sure. I think they need to be (dealt with). I took action against myself when I got banned."

Ince, on the touchline for just the second time since returning from that five-game stadium ban, had no arguments about the two of the reds dished out by Chris Sarginson between the 88th minute and the final whistle but felt the final sending-off, for MacKenzie's foul on Ishmael Miller, was the wrong decision.

"To be fair Broady (Broadfoot) had to go, that was reckless, and you know you are on a yellow card. The last thing you want is your centre-half sent off, he has just got to stand up. The referee got that one spot on to be fair.

"With Gary MacKenzie he's gone to ground and its no more than that. I don't think that was a sending-off.

"Ricky (Fuller) should know better. He puts his head to him. I think the lad (Ayling) went down as if he'd been shot which is poor. You just want a bit of honesty - he saw a chance to get one of my players sent off and he took it."

Ince's men did create a number of clear-cut openings with the manager's son Tom firing wide when clean through in the first half before the likes of Stephen Dobbie, Fuller and Michael Chopra all failed to hit the target when well placed.

"We can't moan about the chances that we've had, we've had some clear-cut chances," Ince added.

"Probably more than we've had since I've been here but if they don't score and don't hit the target then they aren't going to score goals.

"It has been, all in all, a crap night. It is a crap journey down. The Football League gave us a crap game on a Tuesday night at Yeovil which was crap."

The late drama overshadowed what was a vital victory for Yeovil, who were in danger of being cut adrift before back-to-back victories for the first time at this level.

With the Glovers now just two points from safety and within five points of seven teams at the foot of the Sky Bet Championship it meant a thoroughly pleasing night was capped by another positive for Gary Johnson.

"That is another win for us and it is nice now to see four wins on the board and hopefully we can see some more quickly," he said.

"Psychologically to go above Barnsley and Sheffield Wednesday was massive and to beat Blackpool has dragged in probably seven or eight teams.

"Suddenly, all of a sudden, you can pull in more teams than you could a few weeks ago and that is good.

"We knew Blackpool compete - that is why they are at the top end of the league.

"They compete and they have that little bit of quality and ability as well. They are all clever players so I am proud of our boys that we competed with them.

"We move on to the next game, which is a massive game against Charlton."
