First Team Debuts

Milestones
Mike Teasdale played his 100th major competitive game for the Club.

The wind caused problems but Caley Thistle controlled the game. Wilson had the first shot in 3 minutes from the edge of the box but it was blocked. In 5 minutes Livingston�s Conway set up Millar but Calder saved his drive. McLean had a chance in 12 minutes when he sent in a low header after a Wilson corner but it crept past. In 17 minutes Calder made a double save from Rajamaki and McCaldon saved a low Christie shot. In 28 minutes Hastings ran into the Livingston half and shot low past the post from just outside the area. In 44 minutes a Sheerin free kick from 20 yards shaved the post. 30 seconds into the second half Caley Thistle were caught by a move involving Robertson and Bingham, his close range shot was deflected for a corner. The home side began to dominate and in 56 minutes a long Calder clearance fell for McLean who ran on and shot from 15 yard, however McCaldon saved well. A minute later it was 1-0. A McCulloch run set up Christie on the edge of the box, he passed to Shearer who scored from 12 yards. 5 minutes later Christie was again the provider when his pass found Wilson in the box and he trundled it past McCaldon to make it 2-0. In 83 minutes Livingston pulled one back when Millar was unmarked at the back post and headed home a Bingham free kick. This gave Livingston hope but the Caley Thistle defence held firm. A fine victory which put Caley Thistle joint top of the Division with Clyde.
