Terry Butcher: Pleased with his players

Caley Thistle leapfrogged their derby rivals into third place in the SPL table thanks to Andrew Shinnie's fifth minute opener and Billy McKay's 59th minute spot-kick.

County manager Adams was left fuming at the award of the penalty, insisting Mihael Kovacevic had won the ball when challenging Charlie Taylor inside the 18-yard box.

However, Butcher pointed to a similar incident in the previous Highland derby two weeks ago

He said: "We felt we should have had a penalty at Victoria Park, so maybe justice has evened itself out.

"Derek Adams didn't think it was a penalty, but I think the one two weeks ago was.

"I'm very pleased with the players. We're not quite there yet in terms of top six, but we're just about there, so I'm delighted."

ark clattenburg is one of those referees that tends to get stick from both sides cos he likes to let the game flow and is quite lenient, and people only remember the fouls against their own team that go unpunished whilst not noticing the ones they've gotten away with. To pick up 4 yellow cards with clattenburg in charge speaks volumes about your approach to the game mr pellegrini.

astly under-rated goal keeper. Barcelona could have gone out and bought a keeper at any point they liked, but they stuck with him for a reason.
