First Team Debuts

Milestones

For the third time in 11 days Caley Thistle faced St Mirren but they could not repeat their earlier victories. The Saints gained revenge with a 3-2 victory leaving the visitors pointless at the foot of the table. The match flared up in 21 minutes when a clumsy Tokely challenge on Chris Kerr led to tension amongst the players and a red card for the Caley Thistle player. A Paul Sheerin penalty gave the home side the lead in 29 minutes but Saints scored three before half time. Mike Teasdale made it 3-2 four minutes from time but the home side could not grab a point.
