Caley Thistle let a 2-1 lead slip to fall behind at Dingwall before Foran pounced to take County back to the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium for a replay.

"It wasn't the same quality as the first game (Inverness won 3-1 when the teams met in the SPL on 5 October) but there was still plenty of action and incidents," said Butcher.

"We are just delighted to get them back to our place. I'm really happy with that, considering we lost a goal in added time.

"It was good to go in at half-time in the lead. But they equalised quite quickly in the second half.

"To be fair to Ross County, they really had a go in the second half. They pinned us back and got the ball forward quickly. They dealt with the scraps and the second balls better than us.

"But then we scored and you are thinking with seven or eight minutes to go we can grind this one out. Then, disappointingly, we concede two goals but we had to character to come back and get the equaliser.

"I said to the players afterwards you never know when you're beaten. If you have that resilience and toughness in your team, it's going to be a cracking season."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
