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."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
