MANAGER Duncan Ferguson has confirmed Inverness Caledonian Thistle had two men sent off in their 1-0 defeat to Partick Thistle in Glasgow.

Cammy Kerr was sent off midway through the second half after picking up a second yellow card.

After full time, it was also confirmed assistant manager Gary Bollan was sent off by referee John Beaton.

Ferguson says the club will look to appeal Cammy Kerr’s first yellow card in Caley Thistle’s 1-0 defeat at Partick Thistle in Glasgow.

The on-loan defender from Dundee received two yellow cards during the defeat at Firhill which leaves them four points from safety.

Yellow cards can be appealed in cases of simulation and Ferguson says they will look to get it rescinded for Kerr.

He said: “It is a clear free kick, he might not have saw it, but we all saw it. We are going to appeal, we lost 1-0 and are fighting for our lives.

“It was a clear free kick, it probably was a free kick, it is not two yellow cards. We will appeal it and we will win the appeal. I have looked it back, there was connection,but what can you do.”

Ferguson also felt that they did not get a foul on Alex Samuel in their favour before Partick Thistle went on to score the opener.

He said: “I’m not sure if it was inside or outside the box but it was absolutely a free-kick. He turns him and it’s an easy decision. They went up the park and scored.”

Ferguson felt decisions against his team cost them a point at Firhill.

He said: “We dominated the possession and had more shots than them and pushed all the way.

“There were two decisions that went against us which is disappointing.

“Our goalkeeper did fantastic and made a great save but never followed in. I thought we were really good and pushed all the way.”
