Milestones
Wayne Addicoat scored his first goal for the Club.

Inverness CT retained top slot in the Division with this convincing win.

They took the lead in 9 minutes when Barry Wilson scored after a fine run by Richard Hastings. They went 2 ahead in 57 minutes when Wayne Addicoat ran 40 yards before scoring from 12 yards with a drive which Craig Hinchcliffe could only palm into the net.

In 57 minutes Iain Stewart chipped Hinchcliffe to make it 3. Brian Grant pulled one back in 84 minutes but a minute later Charlie Christie made it 4-1 after beating a defender and rounding Hinchcliffe.

Close to the end a Brian Grant penalty was superbly saved by Jim Calder.
