First Team Debuts

Milestones

A determined performance by the visitors gained them a draw.

Young opened the scoring in 11 minutes with a spectacular overhead kick into the bottom left hand corner. Caley Thistle came back and chances fell to Stewart and MacArthur. At the other end Baillie came close in 37 minutes but hit the side netting.

One minute into the second half Baillie made it 2-0 when he curled the ball past Calder after beating Bennett and Noble. Livingston still pressed and in 56 minutes Calder tipped over a Baillie half-volley. In 62 minutes Young headed past from four yards.

Livingston rued their earlier chances when a Sinclair own goal made it 2-1. In 80 minutes a Mitchell pass was intercepted by Sinclair and he touched it past Douglas. Four minutes from time Mike Teasdale rose above a flat-footed defence to head a dramatic equaliser.
