MANAGER Duncan Ferguson says he is pleased with the players that he has brought in during the January transfer window saying they have made a positive contribution.

Midfielder Sean McAllister from Everton was signed yesterday afternoon on a loan deal until the end of the season.

He is the latest player to arrive at the club on a loan deal along with James Carragher from Wigan Athletic, Alex Samuel from Ross County, Cammy Kerr from Dundee and Jeremiah Chilokoa-Mullen from Leeds United. Remi Savage arrived from Newcastle United on a permanent deal last week.

Ferguson says he has been impressed with the contribution each of them has been made since arriving at Inverness.

He said: “I can say the players I brought in and played on Saturday certainly contributed, with Alex Samuel scoring a hat-trick.

“I am happy with the players we have brought in. We got a great result at Kirkcaldy on Saturday and I gave two players, Jeremiah Chilokoa-Mullen and Remi Savage, their senior debuts.

“We won away to the second best team in the league - Raith Rovers.From that small snippet, you would say we’ve been very good in terms of who we have brought in.

“But we have a long way to go this season.”

Inverness return to action in the Scottish Championship tomorrow when they take on Queen’s Park at the Caledonian Stadium.

Despite their impressive form on the road, with wins against Ayr United and Raith Rovers, Inverness have been poor at home, winning only twice at home in the league this season.

With their next three matches at home including against Hibernian in the Scottish Cup next week and Partick Thistle later in the month, Ferguson says it is vital they sort out their problems at home.

He said: “We have put ourselves under pressure with our home form not being as good as we think it should be. We’re really good on the road, for whatever reason. Away from home, we score a lot of goals and play well. At home, we have played well also, but not got the results. Playing at home should be an advantage, but at the moment it doesn’t seem to be.

“Hopefully we can change that on Saturday - we are looking forward to the match.”
