DEFIANT Ayr boss Ian McCall has hit out at key refereeing decisions which cost his side as they suffered defeat in the Premiership play-off quarter-final. But he insists they are still in the tie.
United lost 3-1 at home to Inverness Caley Thistle, with the away leg on Saturday.
He said: "I don't like to complain about referees as I have made mistakes myself But their second goal was offside and it was never a penalty on a month of Sundays. These big decisions went against us.
He added: "The tie is not over. If we go up there and score first which we are capable of doing, who knows what happens.
Added the manager: "I  don't think the score was a fair reflection of the game. We were worried about the physicality of Inverness. The type of players we have, Jamie Adams, Steven Bell and Andy Geggan can match up to that.
The first goal came from a set play  and we had two or three chances from really good football and ironically we scored a goal from a set play.
"I must give great credit to Ross Docherty and Liam Snith, you're  lucky if  they were 70 per cent fit and they put in a great shift for this club."We can't moan about injuries as in the first half of the season we didn't have injuries. 
"We will go up on Friday night, prepare well and put on a performance."
