First Team Debuts

Ross Tokely made his 300th competitive appearance for the Club.

Ross Tokely's 300th game ended prematurely with a second yellow card in the 68th minute and an early shower.

Caley Thistle were then forced onto the back foot but held out for a draw. They had earlier looked good value for their lead and victory was a distinct possibility.

Stand-in management team John Docherty and Charlie Christie made no changes to that which lost to Celtic. The crowd of 1125 was the lowest for a league match at Pittodrie this season but what they lacked in numbers they certainly made up for in enthusiasm and noise.

The burning issue was the vacant managers post but the players just got on with the job in a professional manner. ICT began the game well and Darren Dods had a chance in nine minutes but his effort from five yards went over the bar.

At the other end the big defender then fouled Jason Scotland on the edge of the box but Mark Wilson's 20-yard drive sailed over the bar. Caley Thistle should have had a penalty when Mark Wilson handled the ball in the area but the referee waived away the claim.

On the half hour Richie Hart had a terrific strike which Paul Jarvie in the United goal did well to parry and defender Alan Archibald was on hand to clear the danger. United's Derek McInnes then had an effort go wide of the mark before Jim McIntyre's left foot strike came back off the far post and fell to Barry Robson but he was well tackled by Stuart Golabek.

Half Time:

Two minutes into the second half and another chance for ICT when Roy McBain's corner kick was swung over and Barry Wilson, at the far post, was unable to get a touch to the ball. It was not long before the opening goal when Russell Duncan played a superb ball through to Roy McBain on the left and the midfielder ran clean through on the United goal only to see Jarvie parry his shot across goal - there on hand to score his second goal of the season was Juanjo who rolled the ball into the net from all of three yards.

Minutes later it could have been two when Barry Wilson's superb 25-yard free-kick came back off the woodwork. United were back in the game just after the hour mark when Jim McIntyre struck a tremendous shot which gave Mark Brown no chance.

Juanjo's excellent 20-yard drive then struck the post and went for a goal kick. Worse was to follow for Caley Thistle as Ross Tokely, who was booked in the first half, brought down Derek McInnes and his second yellow card was followed by the red and ICT were left to play the final 20 minutes of the match with 10 men.

Full Time: 1-1

In the end the team held out for a draw and moved four points clear of bottom-club Livingston.
