Unknown @ Tulloch Caledonian Stadium

Inverness Caledonian Thistle ensured Kilmarnock remain in relegation danger after a victory that turned on a red card for keeper Jamie MacDonald. The visitors led 1-0 at half-time from Kallum Higginbotham's smart finish. But when MacDonald pulled down Ross Draper and was sent off after 55 minutes, Greg Tansey's equaliser from the spot changed the game's dynamic. Draper flicked home after a corner to put Caley ahead before Danny Williams wrapped up victory three minutes later.

 

Comments

Lee Clark: "I could understand if he (Balatoni's "blind" back-pass) was facing the keeper but he just turned and hit it blind when he was facing up-field. It was a crazy decision and it has hurt us, There were so many knock-on effects from it. We gave away a penalty, allowed them back into the game and lost a keeper who has probably been the best in the division this season. We then made another error from a set-piece and when the players keep making errors, you have to think they are not learning the process, and you have to change the personnel. We might have made it more difficult for ourselves now but we have to keep fighting, We will be fine. We have to re-group and next week (against Hamilton) was always going to be a huge game anyway. It is no different now."
