First Team Debuts

Milestones

Home draw:

Caley Thistle were unable to repeat Saturdays result and could only salvage a point from the game after a very poor showing in the first half saw them go a goal down after only 18 minutes when dire defending gave Higdon acres of space to get his shot on target.

A double substitution at half time saw Rooney and Barrowman replace Vigurs and Wood.  The resulting change in formation allowing the ICT Players to do what they do best, get the head down and get stuck in, and the reward for that came in 80 minutes when Flinders was left floundering and Rooney managed to stick the ball away on his second attempt.
