The visitors should have won but were denied mainly by Russells good goalkeeping. The first chance came in 14 minutes - a Christie cross found Stewart who headed straight at Russell. On 30 minutes Stewart took a McGinlay pass but his shot was well saved. In 35 minutes Christie hit it straight at Russell and a minute later Stewart shot over the bar. In the second half Cowdenbeath pressed forward and in 55 minutes Calder saved well from Conn. In 60 and 79 minutes Russell made good saves from Teasdale. Near the end Caley Thistle had a penalty claim turned down after a defender blatantly handled.
