First Team Debuts

Milestones

This was a lively game and the first chance fell to Livingstons Harvey but his shot was well saved by Calder.

Stoute saved from Hercher and Thomson and Calder made further saves from McMartin, Smart & McLeod.

In 40 minutes Stoute saved well from Christie after a solo run and just before half time Stoute saved from Teasdale and Thomson shot past.

The fast pace continued into the second half and Stoute made a great save from a Thomson header. In the 81st minute Harvey shot from close range but Calder amazingly pushed it onto the bar. The clearance reached Caley Thistle substitute Stewart - he flicked it to Christie who stroked it past Stoute.

Livingston retaliated and Calder saved a deflected shot from McMartin. The game was over in 88 minutes when Teasdale scored with a spectacular shot from 25 yards after a run from the halfway line.
