Ross Draper netted an early goal for Inverness and the hosts wrapped up the points with late strikes from Richie Foran and Billy McKay.

Fenlon found it hard to explain why his side let their standards slip so badly after their recent William Hill Scottish Cup triumph over Hearts.

"It was a poor performance all round from start to finish," he said. "We defended poorly, which we haven't been doing.

"We didn't get to the levels of previous performances. It's hard to explain why straight after the game, we will need to analyse it.

"But when you are not playing well you have to make sure you stay in the game and do enough, but we let in sloppy goals."

The Premier League: As Crazy As A Bag Of Snakes

haos reached its ultimate reckoning last weekend with Tony Hibbert looking assured at left back and Osman looking like a cultured ball playing midfielder before busting a gut to get to the back post for a Samuel Eto'o ball. Different chaos but chaos. If Kone scores the winner tonight I fear the world will end.
