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."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
