Accies Have Us Sussed
The second game between these sides in three days produced yet another three points for bottom club Accies and a red card for Billy Mckay to rub salt into our wounds.
Inverness were unchanged with Austin Samuels and Robbie Deas on the bench but Lucas De Bolle missed out for Accies with Andy Winter starting and Lewis Smith was on the bench.
Accies started where they left off in Inverness pushing the visitors onto the back foot from the start looking to impose themselves on the game early on. Steve Lawson had an effort cleared from the line by Cammy Harper and Connor Smith brought Ridgers into action before Sean Welsh headed over and Billy Mckay and Scott Allardice had efforts for the visitors. However, Accies took the lead when a Lawson short corner fed Connor Smith who crossed in for Daniel O'Reilly to powerfully head home. JP Tiehi missed from close range following a corner but Dan Mackay and Nathan Shaw retaliated for Inverness and Scott Allardice headed wide. Danny Devine had a shot blocked in the box ten minutes before the break and Welsh headed wide at the back post after a corner as Inverness threatened to get back on level terms. Billy Mckay had a header blocked away for a corner as the pressure ramped up heading towards the interval and it paid off in the 43rd minute when Allardice drilled home from the edge of the box to level the game after a Carson cross was half cleared. Still time for Winter and JPT to combine but the latter shot wide. A deserved goal for the Caley Jags who have pushed hard to get back on level terms.
HALF TIME 1-1
Welsh had a header cleared off the line from a Henderson corner five minutes after the break. Wallace Duffy also headed wide from a corner and Dan Mackay hit a post after Billy Mckay set him up. Despite the Inverness pressure Accies went back in front from the spot moments after a big penalty shout for handball in the visitors defence. Similar to Saturday, Connor Smith made no mistake from the spot after Dan Mackay brought down Rhegan Tumilty after the previous claim for handball was waived away. Billy Mckay shot wide as Inverness looked to come back again and Henderson had an effort blocked in the last minute of normal time. Billy got a yellow instead of a penalty then a second yellow followed and that just about summed up our three days of the Jackass.
FULL TIME 2-1
