Milestones
Charlie Christie played his 250th major competitive game for the Club.
Stuart McCaffrey played his 50th major competitive game for the Club.

This was Caley Thistle�s first away league win of the season and it edged them up to third spot. Falkirk had the better of the first half but had only one goal to show for it. Despite Falkirk�s dominance Caley Thistle created first half chances. Mike Teasdale was set up by a Dennis Wyness pass but with only Myles Hogarth to beat he scooped the ball over the bar. Martin Bavidge had the chance to score into an empty net when Hogarth dropped a low ball from Charlie Christie but McQuilken blocked his shot from the edge of the area. Falkirk�s goal came in the 28th minute when Kevin McAllister sent in a low cross from the left and Steven Rennie headed past Nicky Walker. Caley Thistle took control of the second half and equalised in 59 minutes with a Bobby Mann low free kick from 22 yards. The winner came eight minutes from time when substitute Stuart Golabek sent over a cross from the left which deceived defenders Kevin Christie and Steve Rennie � Paul Ritchie controlled it well ten yards out and sent a left foot shot past Hogarth.
