Milestones

An important victory which earned a lucrative fourth round away tie against Hearts. Caley Thistle started sharply and in four minutes Russell Duncan latched onto a Ross Tokely pass but chipped onto the roof of the net. At the other end, midway through the half, David McInally curled a shot from 18 yards which Nicky Walker punched away. In 37 minutes Charlie Christie set up Barry Robson but his effort went just wide. Robson made no mistake four minutes later when he scored with a tremendous curling free kick from 25 yards. Six minutes into the second half the lead was doubled when Martin Bavidge ran down the right and sent in a low ball which Paul Ritchie turned past Craig Hinchcliffe at the near post. Hinchcliffe then denied Bavidge with a diving save and at the other end Walker held a long range effort from John Cusick. With ten minutes left Arbroath´┐Żs Jordan Tait hit wildly over the bar. Despite a late surge there was no way back for the home side.
