We strengthen a result of Michiel Kosters by proving the following theorems: (∗) Let φ: W → V be a finite surjective morphism of algebraic varieties over an ample field K. Suppose V has a simple K-rational point a such that a ∉ φ(W (Kins)). Then, card(V (K) \ φ(W (K)) = card(K). (∗∗) Let K be an infinite field of positive characteristic and let f ∈ K[X] be a non-constant monic polynomial. Suppose all zeros of f in K belong to Kins \ K. Then, card(K \ f(K)) = card(K).
