Butcher demands Inverness Caley do not allow season to fizzle out

Inverness Caley boss Terry Butcher doesn't want his players to let the season fizzle out.

After their draw with Hearts, Caley Thistle will finish the season in the bottom half of the SPL.

But Butcher said: "It didn't mean little to us. We wanted to go out and win the game and showed a great desire to do that.

"We got ourselves into the lead and probably should have scored more goals as we carved them open a few times, particularly in the first half.

"I was disappointed to be only a goal up at the interval because I knew Jim (Jefferies) would give his players a roasting at half-time and he duly did.

"With the goal I think there was a whistle blown just before a throw-in and we stopped a little bit. Because of that it allowed Hearts to get into a good position, from which they scored.

"At 1-1, their tails were up and we had to defend well, but we also had opportunities even when we went down to 10 men. The players certainly couldn't have given me anymore."
