First Team Debuts

Milestones

The first half was very even and the result could have gone the other way if Arbroath had taken their chances.

Caley Thistles best chance fell in 7 minutes to Scott but he hit it just wide. Inverness took control in the second half and had several chances. In 72 minutes Ross sent over a great ball from the left and Stewart hit it home from 10 yards. In 84 minutes it was 2-0 when Scott lobbed the ball over the advancing Dunn. In the dying seconds Arbroaths Elliot sent in a weak shot but it deflected off Mike Noble to give the home side a consolation goal.
