Inverness Caledonian Thistle manager Terry Butcher says the end of the season has come at the wrong time for his side, with several players coming back from injuries.
Over the course of the campaign key players have suffered long-term injuries, hurting the club’s bid to make the top six of the SPL.
Chris Hogg, Owain Tudur Jones, Andrew Shinnie and Aaron Doran, have all spent spells on the sidelines.
And after their 2-0 win over Hibernian on the final day of the season, Butcher wishes there were still matches to play.
He said: "I'm delighted that we've managed to beat Hibs for the first time this season.
"It was a great free-kick by Greg Tansey to get us going. He's a fantastic player, who has got better and better as the season has gone on, but I think that could be applied to the whole team.
"It's actually disappointing that the season is now over for us because we're beginning to get our injured players back and the team has a good shape about it."
