Terry Butcher marked his 100th SPL game in charge of Inverness Caledonian Thistle with a 3-1 win over Ross County but admitted he hadn’t enjoyed the experience of watching the game from the stands.
Goals from Ross Draper, Andrew Shinnie and Aaron Doran gave the hosts three points against Ross County with Iain Vigurs replying for the visitors.
Butcher was serving a one-match ban for comments made after a draw with Aberdeen last month and had to watch the game from the stands.
He admitted afterwards that he felt ‘sick’ at not being able to influence matters from the touchline but added the result made it a night to savour.
He said: "It was my 100th SPL game in charge here and an absolute cracker.
"Ross Tokely's early header against his own crossbar seemed to wake everybody up and all of a sudden the game opened up.
"We got our two goals but it is becoming a strange scoreline for us as Ross County came back into it very well in the second half.
"They made a right fight of it and are a real danger from set pieces with their great deliveries into the box and a lot of people who can attack the ball, but Antonio Reguero made some good saves and we had other men throwing themselves into blocks and we fought and scrapped and needed the third goal - and what a goal it was."
