A much delayed first league win accomplished in style. Arbroath created little apart from an early second half flurry. Dennis Wyness broke his league duck for the season with a hat-trick. In under a minute Paul Ritchie sent a header past the post then in 6 minutes Wyness opened the scoring. A long lob from Ross Tokely eluded two defenders and fell for Wyness � he drew Craig Wight and finished clinically. In 14 minutes Barry Robson took a corner on the right and Bobby Mann headed his fourth goal of the season for 2-0. A Ritchie header flashed past in 25 minutes but the rest of the first half was a dull affair. Arbroath�s Innes Ritchie was lucky to stay on the field when he handled just before half time. James Mercer shot over the home bar just after the interval then a James Gardner free kick came off the wall and Walker made his first save. On the hour mark a Roy McBain corner reached Wyness at the back post and he shot home his second off the post. Five minutes later a Stuart Golabek run set up Ritchie but his on-target header was saved by Wight. The fourth goal was only delayed by three minutes � McBain took a touch from Ritchie and hit a low ball into the net from 12 yards. Arbroath gained a consolation with two minutes left when Paul Brownlie took a corner on the left and Stevie Mallan�s downwards header eluded all. Caley Thistle ran upfield and Wyness completed his hat-trick. Mike Teasdale set Ritchie off down the right and he ran into the box before cutting it across the six yard line � Wyness took it first time and scored under pressure. A welcome three points and a lift off the bottom of the table.
