ICT FC 0-0 St Mirren 17th May 2008

Caley Jags ended the season with ten men after David Proctor was red carded on 54 mins.Despite chances falling to Marius Niculae and Denis Wyness, early on, the match ended without either team scoring.

Craig Brewster was satisfied with the team's performance and believed they could have come away with the points, if things had gone a bit different in the first half: "... I thought we were excellent before the break... we had three great opportunities and maybe on another day we would have been comfortable."

Gus MacPherson was pleased to see his team's defensive record extended to 369 minutes without conceding a goal: "You could see tired legs out there... we didn't pass the ball well enough when Inverness went to 10 men... but we've come away from home and kept a clean sheet... over the last few games the defensive record has been superb."

Falkirk 2-1 ICT FC 10th May 2008

Caley Jags failed to pick up further points this week as they went down two goals to one at Falkirk.   The Bairns' first goal came on 29 mins when Michael Higdon scored following a Pedro Moutinho corner. On 68 mins Carl Finnigan scored Falkirk's second, again with the assistance of Moutinho. Caley Jags pulled one back in extra time. Barry Wilson scored from the spot after being taken down in the box by Thomas Scobbie.

After the defeat Craig Brewster commented: "... they really passed us off the park in the first half hour... they were sharper and stronger than us which was disappointing... we came back strongly after the half time break but the second goal killed us..."

ICT FC 6-1 Gretna 3rd May 2008

Caley Jags had their biggest winning margin, since entering the SPL, when they beat Gretna 6-1 at Tulloch Caledonian Stadium today. It only took little more than a half a minute from kick off before Dougie Imrie fired the ball past Gretna keeper Greg Fleming. Rory McAllister headed home Caley Jags' second goal on 24 mins after Fleming intercepted and pushed away a Marius Niculae header. Then 3 mins later Steven Hogg headed home from a Brendan McGill free-kick. Barry Wilson netted Caley Jags' third on 51 mins blasting the ball from 20 yards past Fleming. Don Cowie had set up Imrie for the first goal. Imrie returned the favour on 70 mins when he cut the ball back to Cowie for Caley Jags' fourth of the day. Guy Kerr's corner was then headed home on 89 mins by Ross Tokely. Finally, Iain Vigurs volleyed number six 2 mins into injury time.

Craig Brewster was pleased with the team's performance: "It was a good performance by the boys and very comfortable in the end.  There were six good goals and six different scorers - so very pleasing all round."

Current Gretna boss Mick Wadsworth said: "It's been a bad week, we've lost a couple of players - Kissock and Baldacchino... I don't want to make excuses because I thought Inverness were terrific... having said that, I thought the first goal was scandalous... it was at least three metres offside..."

Hearts 1-0 ICT FC 26th April 2008

In what looked like a nil nil game, Hearts looked the most likely to score if there was going to be a winner. After a number of poor finished when through on Michael Fraser Hearts finally broke the deadlock on 80 minutes. A nifty one two between Gary Glen and Ruben Palazuelos was followed by a fine finish by Glen.

Craig Brewster felt the team didn't perform as well during the second half: "Second half we didn't really assert ourselves at all and couldn't keep the ball... I think most people thought it was a nil-nil but credit to Hearts... Glen played a one-two and finished well."

Stevie Frail was delighted with Hearts' latest win: "Second half we didn't really assert ourselves at all and couldn't keep the ball... I think most people thought it was a nil-nil but credit to Hearts, Glen played a one-two and finished well."

ICT FC 3-0 Kilmarnock 19th April 2008

After a fairly even first 10 mins Caley Jags opened the scoring. Dougie Imrie netted his first Caley Jags' goal from a free kick on the edge of the Killie box. An own goal on 71mins doubled the lead. David Liley found himself under pressure following a penetrating run from Imrie whose subsequent crossed ball was heading for Roy McBain. Caley Jags' third of the day came on 79mins when Marius Niculae blasted the ball into the top corner of the net.

Craig Brewster was pleased with the teams' performance as they entered the last five games of the season: "The back four defended well and we got goals at the right times... Dougie Imrie's was a sweet goal. We got some good deliveries in the box... It's important that we do finish strongly and positively because everybody then goes home with a smile on their face."

Understandably Jim Jefferies was less than satisfieed with his team's performance:"There was only one team that wanted to win it and that was Inverness. I think some of the quality of our play and passing wasn't good enough... The goals that we conceded, if you look at them individually, were just a joke."

Gretna 1-2 ICT FC 5th April 2008

Caley Jags were determined to return to winning ways when they met Gretna at Fir Park. A frustrating first half finished goalless as Caley Jags managed to pass by five excellent scoring opportunities. The deadlock was finally broken on 71 mins with Roy McBain slotting home following a Dougie Imrie pass. It only took a further 2 mins for Caley Jags to double the lead with a fine finish from Don Cowie. Gretna fought back and managed to score their first and only goal against Caley Jags on 80 mins. A Kyle Naughton shot was stopped but not held by Michael Fraser. Craig Barr was on hand and blasted the loose ball past Fraser.

After the match Caley Jags manager Craig Brewster commented on the missed opportunities: "We had five great chances in the first half, not just good chances, great chances... I was worried when we were missing those chances but we didn't panic, we kept playing it around and that was important."

Current Gretna boss Mick Wadsworth said: "I was asked if it was hard motivating the players but it's not because they are a smashing bunch of kids... they are just a joy and I just really, really wish we could get a result."

ICT FC 3-4 Aberdeen 29th March 2008

Aberdeen managed to keep their unbeaten record against Caley Jags after scoring in extra time. Caley Jags started strongly but it was the on-loan Birmingham player Sone Aluko who put Aberdeen into the lead. After only 7 mins he shot low past Michael Fraser. Caley Jags came back and managed to equalise on 21 mins after a Russell Duncan free kick was headed into his own net by Dave Bus. Caley Jags pushed on and took the lead on 40 mins when Duncan scored from 25 yards. Aberdeen replied just before half time when Barry Nicholson headed home a Ricky Foster cross. Caley Jags dropped to ten men for the second half after Russell Duncan received his second yellow card of the day. It was on 52 mins that Aberdeen took the lead again. This time Lee Miller headed in from a Nicholson corner. Again, Caley Jags drew level when on 57 mins Roy McBain scored from a Don Cowie cross. True to form Aberdeen picked up all the points in the final moments of extra time when Chris Maguire scored the Don’s fourth of the day.

Overall Craig Brewster could not fault the Caley Jags' performance: "... all in all I was delighted with the performace today. That's what I talk about... work-rate and effort and enthusiasm from my players... I think they showed everything today. I think the game had everything. It had good football, incident, sending-offs, seven goals. It's just a pity that we had fewer goals than Aberdeen."

Jimmy Calderwood acknowledged that Russell Duncan's red card was the turning point in their game: " We heard at half-time that Russell Duncan had been sent off and that galvanises teams... we had to win and we've done it... we're still in the melting pot (for a top six finish)".

Kilmarnock 4-1 ICT FC 22nd March 2008

After an extended poor run of results Caley Jags started the stronger of the two sides.  Their early efforts were rewarded when Ian Black scored from the spot after 14 mins. Kilmarnock however became a greater threat as the first half progressed. On 37 mins Black brought  Danny Invincibile down just outside the Caley Jags’ box. The resulting free kick was taken by Iain Flannigan. The ball came off the upright and Frazer Wright tapped it home to level the score going into the interval. Then, 5 mins into the second half, Craig Bryson blasted the ball past Michael Fraser from 25 yards. Bryson scored his second on 56mins, the ball deflecting in off Phil McGuire. Finally on 64 mins David Fernandez crossed the ball to Flannigan who shot it into the roof of net.

Manager Craig Brewster acknowledged the side's shortcomings during the second half: "At the start of the second half they put us under pressure and Garry Hay hits three crosses into the box in the first ten minutes which we don't really deal with and one of them leads to their second goal.  After that our heads really go down and that was a major disappointment, every time they went up the park they looked like scoring for a spell."

Jim Jefferies changed his team's strategy for the second half: "We played far too many long balls, which played into their hands though and I emphasized at half-time we needed to get the ball down and pass it. That's what happened in the second half and, when we got the third goal, suddenly everyone wanted to get on the ball."

"... at no stage did we look like scoring... "

ICT FC 0-1 Falkirk 15th March 2008

Today’s game was important to both Caley Jags and Falkirk as each eyed up a top six position before the split. However the closely matched sides cancelled each other out for the majority of the game. The introduction of substitutes by both sides, during the second half, lifted the game for the final fifteen minutes. Caley Jags pressed the stronger and looked like they could break the deadlock. However, when the only goal of the match came it fell to Falkirk. On 86 mins substitute Billy Clarke scored from six yards after Russell Latapy penetrated the Caley Jags defence.

Manager Craig Brewster points to the team's recent inability to score as his biggest worry: "It was a very disappointing day especially the way the game finished.... the chances of getting in the top six are well gone and at the end of the day if you don't score goals you are never going to win games.... at no stage did we look like scoring and that is a worry... we have only scored four goals in nine games which is not good enough and you can't expect to win games with a record like that... we don't want to slip down the table and we need to put things right as soon as possible."

John Hughes commenting, after the match, said: “It wasn't the best of games... one or two of the players thought it was end of season stuff... the introduction of Latapy and Riera put us on the foot and it was a great time for us to score... it gets us nearer the top six, which has to be our target."

"...our confidence drained away... "

ICT FC 0-3 Hearts 1st March 2008

Hearts took charge of today's game. Two goals in the first half and one in the second from the Edinburgh side saw them take all three points and move to within one place of a top six position. On 22 mins Christos Karipidis headed home an Andrew Driver corner. Then on 33 mins Calum Elliot ran on to Christian Nade's cut-back and slammed home past Michael Fraser. Early in the second half a poor back-pass by Ian Black was intercepted by Elliot. His initial attempt was blocked but he regained possession and chipped Fraser on 47mins. Caley Jags' best chances fell to Marius Niculae, but the two close range opportunities failed to be converted to goals.

After Caley Jags' fourth defeat on the trot Craig Brewster said: "They got a lift from the two first half goals and our confidence drained away. Now we need to pick up and it's my job to lift everybody. We're not too far away from the top six but we need to get back to basics and start defending better."

Stephen Frail however, was delighted to see Calum Elliot score twice: "Calum Elliot has come in for a lot of criticism but he's chipped in with two goals and the second finish was real class..."

"... we have to be really switched on from the start. "

Hibernian 2-0 ICT FC 23rd February 2008

No points today for Caley Jags. For the second time in four days their fate was sealed in the opening minutes of the game. Hibs scored their two goals in the first five minutes of the match. Caley Jags, especially during the second half, played some of their finest football of the season. This display however did not result in any further goals. Hibs opened on 3 mins when Merouane Zemmama sent Colin Nish clear through on goal with only Micheal Fraser to beat. Then, only 2 mins later, Steven Fletcher scored from a low drive from the middle of the penalty area.

Craig Brewster was pleased with the second half performance, but was at a loss to explain the opening period of play: "It was an unbelievable start and you fear a long afternoon... the second half performance was superb and the only thing missing was a goal... it's not easy winning games in the SPL and we have to be really switched on from the start."

Mixu Paatelainen was delighted with his side's win: "Inverness are not a bad team at all and not to concede a goal is great too... but after a really good start we stopped playing... our defending at times wasn't good and there were too many misplaced passes."

"... we were very comfortable today... "

ICT FC 1-1 Dundee United 16th February 2008

Caley Jags pick up another point after pulling back level with visitors Dundee United. There were no goals in the first half after both teams cancelled each other out. Changes to both teams during the second half resulted in new attacking options. Noel Hunt came on at half time for United. His low cross on 67 mins was netted by Prince Buaben. Then on 80 mins Markus Paatelainen came on for the Caley Jags. Four minutes later Roy McBain got the ball through to Paatelainen who fired into the roof of the net to level the score.

Craig Brewster saw his team match United today, an improved performace compared to the last time the teams met in Inverness: "I thought we were very comfortable today without that final killer pass in the opposition's box, it was either hurried or too short.  We made a couple of changes and got ourselves back into the game through Markus... I was delighted for him to get the goal.  He will gain confidence from that today.

Craig Levein acknowledged that a draw was a fair result on the day: "Lots of teams come here and get nothing, but we have a fair bit of strength in depth with players coming back into the squad. It was unfortunate to concede the equaliser, but overall, I think things are looking good for us at present."

"... two unbelievable saves... "

St Mirren 1-1 ICT FC 9th February 2008

Caley Jags were the better side during the first half. Their efforts were rewarded on 38 mins when Grant Munro scored the clubs landmark 1000th goal. A Don Cowie corner was met by Dennis Wyness who headed the ball back to Munro. He drove the ball into the back of the net to score his first of the season. St Mirren took more control of the game during the second half. They levelled the score on 75 mins. Billy Mehmet equalised after the ball fell to him from Michael Fraser after he denied Jim Hamilton.

Craig Brewster was happy with today's result: "We had the better of the first half and they had the better of the second half... Chris Smith had two unbelievable saves from Ian Black and Dennis Wyness in the first half... but you've got be to be happy coming here and getting a draw."

On the other hand Gus MacPherson was not happy: "I feel frustrated not to have taken three points... we look at it as two points dropped... it would have been a travesty if we hadn't taken anything."

"... great energy and enthusiasm... "

ICT FC 0-1 Rangers 20th January 2008

Caley Jags were unlucky not to share the points after the season’s second meeting at home to Rangers. After a strong defensive display, which contained the Rangers threat, a high ball in the 89th minute was not cleared and was prodded home by Jean-Claude Darcheville.

Craig Brewster was pleased with the overall performace of the team: "The players should take a lot of credit from the performance... we showed great energy and enthusiasm and if we keep playing like that we will cause teams problems."

Walter Smith was pleased to go away with a difficult three points: "Inverness have not lost at home for a long time, so that was a really good result for us... any team that comes here will have to work hard because Inverness have such a good determination about them... teams in Scotland don't always get the credit for the good football they play and how well organised they are."

"... players didn't really perform."

Hibernian 3-0 ICT FC 12th January 2008

Caley Jags were convincingly put out of the Scottish Cup by Hibs. Three goals without reply saw Hibernian progress to the next round. Dean Shiels scored a hat-trick with goals on 5, 53 and 84 mins. The Caley Jags support have to wait a bit longer for goal 1000.

Craig Brewster said: "... it's always difficult when you lose an early goal... I don;t think we were really at the races today... too many of our forward thinking players didn't really perform."

Hibs new manager Mixu Paatelainen acknowledged the part his new assistant Donald Park played in Caley Jags' defeat: "We trained and worked on stuff we wanted to exploit and it worked. Donald Park played a big part as he knows the Inverness players' strengths and weaknesses."

"... we're happy..."

ICT FC 3-0 Gretna 5th January 2008

Caley Jags bring their unbeaten run of home games to five after seeing off Gretna. An eight minute spell towards the end of the first half determined the outcome of the game. On form Marius Niculae drove home past Gretna keeper Tony Caig from 25 yards after receiving the ball from Russell Duncan on 33 mins. Five minutes later Niculae was bundled down in the box by Chris Innes. The resulting penalty was taken decisively by John Rankin. Caley Jags third of the day came from Niculae on 41 mins. Ross Tokley headed on a Grant Munro corner which Niculae volleyed home.

Craig Brewster was rightly pleased with today's performance: "It's pleasing when you score three goals and you don't concede any... Marius Niculae has scored two goals... the first one was sweet and the second a snap volley... so we're happy with that."

Gretna's Davie Irons said: "... I've said to the players it's easy to play when you are 3-0 down... I need players out there who will play when it' 0-0. When you lose a goal it's important not to concede again quickly... It gives us a mountain to climb in the second half. We knew the SPL would be tough but we won't give up."

"... a good solid performance..."

Aberdeen 1-0 ICT FC 2nd January 2008

Caley Jags had not beaten Aberdeen in any of their previous encounters.  They have been close a number of times in the past with the Don’s denying defeat in the final seconds of the game. Having won six of their last seven games Caley Jags were upbeat and determined to take the points from Aberdeen. After a close game it looked like ending in a draw. Unfortunately for Caley Jags the deadlock was broken on 83 mins. Ross Tokely barged into Lee Miller in the box. The resulting penalty was drilled home by Barry Nicholson. The Don’s record against Caley Jags remains unbroken.

Craig Brewster was disapointed with the result but pleased with the team's performance: "I am very disappointed with the result after another decent performance here at Pittodrie... we were very solid in every department but Lee Miller has done well and got himself in an area and the referee has given a penalty... we were certainly the better side in the second half again but it is Aberdeen who take the points... I can only praise my players for a good solid performance in what was a disappointing result."

Jimmy Calderwood was satisfied with the Don's performance: "It's always tough to play well in difficult conditions... we were missing six players, so under those circumstances it's a very pleasing result.. the quality of the game dropped after a good start, and we can definitely play better... overall, I have to be satisfied with a win against a team that has been playing well recently."

"... a joy to watch..."

ICT FC 3-1 Kilmarnock 29th December 2007

It was a fine end to the year for Caley Jags as they beat Kilmarnock at Tulloch Caledonian Stadium for the first time. On 42 mins John Rankin was denied by keeper Alan Combe.  The ball however fell to Marius Niculae who scored from close range. Caley Jags added a second on 52 mins when Don Cowie volleyed home from a Richard Hastings' cross. Niculae added another on 76 mins after Grahan Bayne’s shot was stopped by Combe. Colin Nish scored from a late penalty for Kilmarnock after Grant Munro handled the ball on 87 mins.

Craig Brewster was pleased with the team's quick return to winning ways: "The boys were fantastic in the second half and showed great energy levels to run out comfortable winners in the end... Marius has had to adapt to a new life in Scotland and he is a joy to watch when he's in the mood."

Jim Jefferies was disappointed with the Killie performance: "The application and the tenacity just wasn't as good as it could have been after encouraging signs in recent weeks... if it hadn't been for the good form of Alan Combe, we could have lost by one or two more."

"... we did not perform..."

Falkirk 1-0 ICT FC 26th December 2007

Caley Jags returned to Falkirk Stadium looking to continue their undefeated run at that venue. They defended deep during the first half and looked to score on the break. Three opportunities fell to John Rankin but no goals resulted. It was Falkirk who managed to score on 35 mins with a diving header from Gerard Aafjes. In the second half Caley Jags put greater pressure on Falkirk. Both sides had opportunities to add to the score. However, the game ended 1-0 allowing Falkirk to climb above Caley Jags in the table.

Craig Brewster was disappointed with the teams performance: "... for some reason we did not perform.  I thought we were very poor in the first half of the game however we probably had the two best chances of the game before the half-time interval.. aside from the goal, the goalkeepers didn't have many saves to make. I don't think we had much spark today... I don't know why."

Falkirk assistant Brian Rice said: "In the first half we played patchily, in the second half we didn't really play at all... we got the win so obviously we're pleased with that... but disappointed with the perfmance."

John Rankin doubled the lead from the spot on 52 mins after Marius Niculae was brought down by Kurskis. Christophe Berra pulled one back for Hearts on 62 min when he headed past Michael Fraser.

Hearts levelled the score from a penalty on 90 mins after Phil McGuire brought down Andrius Velicka. In the final seconds of extra time the ball fell to Graham Bayne who blasted home from 15 yards.

A delighted Craig Brewster said: "It was certainly some finish to the game today, it had everything from goals to sending offs but I am delighted to send the fans home happy again.  I have a dressing room full of delighted players. .."

"... a big win for us today..."

ICT FC 3-2 Celtic 16th December 2007

For the second time this season Caley Jags met Celtic and again five goals are scored. Unlike the previous meeting Caley Jags came away with the three points.  They made a strong start, but poor defending allowed Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink to score on 24 and 26 mins. Then on 42mins Caley Jags pulled one back when John Rankin scored from the spot after Marius Niculae was impeded by Steven Pressley. The second half saw Caley Jags start with renewed vigour. They were rewarded on 57 mins when David Proctor headed home the equaliser.  Four minutes later Don Cowie put the home side ahead when he picked up a poorly defended high ball from Richard Hastings to hit it home past Mark Brown. Proctor was sent off on 68 mins. Ten man Caley Jags held on to the lead despite continuous pressure from Celtic. The resulting three points allowed Caley Jags to climb above Hearts in the table.

Manager Craig Brewster praised the team's performance: " It was a big win for us today especially under the circumstances of going two goals down.  You have to give the players a lot of credit, I thought they were exceptional in the second half... I wanted them to put the Celtic back four under pressure in the second half, we did that and got the rewards..."

Gordon Strachan felt hard done by: "We had all the possession... all the chances... and all the decisions going against us... we feel a bit hard done by. They took their chances, but we should have won that game quite easily."

"... I'm really pleased for Marius..."

ICT FC 2-0 Hibernian 8th December 2007

Caley Jags achieved their third consecutive league win to place them just one point behind Hearts. Much to the delight of the home support, Marius Niculae scored his first two SPL goals for Caley Jags. His opener came on 42 mins when Niculae picked up the ball from John Rankin and then neatly lobbed the advancing Hibs’ keeper Yves  Makalambay.  Niculae’s second came on 78 mins, his time being fed by Graham Bayne. His shot looked to be going wide but was intercepted by Darren McCormack. His botched clearance went straight back to Niculae who proceeded to knock the ball back into the net.

Manager Craig Brewster was pleased to see the team's winning performance continue: "... that's our third win and third clean sheet on the trot... we rode our luck a bit at times but the longer the game went on the stronger we became... I'm really pleased for Marius... he has a big smile on his face and I think he enjoyed that."

John Collins was disappointed not to pick up any points: "I don't think we played that badly... it was one of those days when we were close but not close enough."

"... we were excellent..."

Dundee United 0-1 ICT FC 1st December 2007

Caley Jags moved further up the table as they take three points from United while St Mirren are thumped by Falkirk. A much improved Caley Jags defence ensured a clean sheet despite the sustained onslaught from Dundee United following Ian Black’s goal on 19 mins. This was only the second goal United have conceded at home this season.

Manager Craig Brewster was satisfied with the performance of the whole team today: "In the first-half we were excellent and we really had to compete... second-half we had to dig in as they threw a lot of balls forward to hit big Lee Wilkie... it was a really big result today against a team going really well... it's up to us to catch the teams above us."

Craig Levine was disapointed with United's performance: "... I'd be looking to win this match at home... we just had too many players off the boil today and too many out of position... on another day with the chances we had we still could've won the match... we had a poor performance."

"... the goal was superb..."

ICT FC 1-0 St Mirren 24th November 2007

Caley Jags moved above Falkirk, and within a point of St Mirren, after today’s home win. All it took was a single goal scored after 6 mins. A penetrating run by Barry Wilson saw him take the ball into the box where he passed to Roy McBain. McBain’s resulting cross was met by a Don Cowie volley which saw the ball beat keeper Chris Smith.

Manager Craig Brewster recognised the improvement in the team's performance: "... I thought the build-up to the goal was superb.... This was a big win for us as it puts us a point behind St Mirren."

St Mirren's Gus McPherson however was not impressed the the referee's performance: "I am not saying the referee has cost us the game... referees don't believe they do that... but there were some strange decisions... referees need to get experience and we understand that, but it always tends to be teams down at the bottom half of the league who have to put up with that."

A day best forgotten for Caley Jags. Another defeat, this time conceding three goals and having two players sent off.

Motherwell’s third came 3 mins from the end when Michael Fraser was nutmegged by Darren Smith. Graham Bayne was sent off after 51 mins and Ross Tokely after 62 mins.

I thought with nine men we did ok... we contained them until the third goal...."

Another disastrous start, as Caley Jags give away a goal after only 34 seconds. Stuart McCaffrey pulled down Nacho Novo just inside the Caley Jags’ half. A quick free-kick resulted in Novo feeding Kris Boyd who slotted home from 18 yards. Rangers second goal came on 62 minutes, when Jean-Claude Darcheville fed Carlos Cuellar who headed home from 6 yards. Graham Bayne, Grant Munro and Russell Duncan all had opportunities but were unable to convert them into goals. Michael Fraser also made a number of saves which ensured a respectable score against a team who next play Barcelona.

Craig Brewster had no complaints with the team's performance against strong opposition: "... I think my players handled it quite well and showed good character after going a goal down in 30 seconds...  We were disciplined and organised and that made sure we never caved in, we got to grips with the game and did ok.  You know that Rangers are always going to have more possession and more chances but you still have got to try and do well when you have the ball and I thought we did that today."

Walter Smith was pleased to pick up the three points: "... I am pleased with the result, which was the main thing for us... we started the game well and got an early goal, but after that we were fairly flat... we didn't reach the levels of some recent games and that is fairly understandable, although not an excuse, considering the number of games we have had recently.

"... Aberdeen won't score three easier goals..."

Aberdeen 4-1 ICT FC 31st October 2007

Serious defensive errors led to Caley Jags’ exit from the CIS Cup. Only 10 mins into the game and Barry Nicholson scored from the spot after a foul by Richard Hastings on Derek Young. Then on 21 min Nicholson scored from a second penalty after Stuart McCaffrey brought down Lee Miller. Miller went on to score Aberdeen’s third goal after Michael Fraser failed to clear a Grant Munro back-pass. Caley Jags pulled one back after 68 min when Graham Bayne finished after Dennis Wyness dispossessed Zander Diamond. Finally on 78 mins Nicholson made it a hat-trick when he scored from close range.

Craig Brewster said after the match: "We certainly made it difficult for ourselves this evening, Aberdeen won't score three easier goals than the first three they scored tonight, two penalties and an easy third goal. It is very hard to take losing the game 4-1 when you consider how the game has went in the second half.  I thought we were excellent in the second half. "

"It was a good day..."

Gretna 0-4 ICT FC 27th October 2007

A SPL record low turn out of 1092 saw Caley Jags pick up three points in a four goal demolition of SPL newbies Gretna. With only 2 mins on the clock Dennis Wyness netted his 101st goal for the club after Ross Tokely was bundled down in the box by David Cowan. This was followed on 31 mins by Caley Jags second goal when Don Cowie hit his free kick from 25 yards past keeper Tony Caig. Barry Wilson came on during the second half and added to the Caley Jags tally on 73 mins with a fine finish from 6 yards. Roy McBain's 30 yard shot, 2 mins later, went in off the bar to give Caley Jags their fourth and final goal of the match. A lot more was expected from a Gretna side that showed no spirit. The Caley Jags supporters chant of the day: "You're just a pub team."

It was a pleased Craig Brewster commenting after the match: "It was a good day, very pleasing to get the four goals and especially not to concede any and keep the clean sheet.  We are all delighted with the three points... "

Dejected Gretna manager David Irons said: " "It was a poor result for us and I'm very disappointed... it was a test of character to come back from that and the players did not respond... we have let ourselves down big style with that performance."

"...we didn't play well..."

ICT FC 1-2 Aberdeen 21st October 2007New

Aberdeen extended their unbeaten record against Caley Jags. They were first to score when on 7 mins Derek Young ran with the ball from inside his own half, into the Caley Jags penalty area, and blasted it under keeper Zbigniew Malkowski. Caley Jags improved their performance during the second half and were rewarded on 57 mins. Dennis Wyness headed home his 100th goal for the club. The good work was undone however when an unlucky Ross Tokely scored an own goal just four minutes later.

Craig Brewster was disappointed with the first half performance: "We came into the match and were excellent in the second half and I can't believe we didn't get anything from the game... but we didn't play well in the opening stages and that is what was disappointing for me."

"...we were a bit sloppy..."

Kilmarnock 2-2 ICT FC 6th October 2007

Caley Jags faced an injury hit Kilmarnock side and had the opportunity to move up to eighth place in the league on collecting three points. Thirty-five seconds into the game, and one goal down, and the new objective was to avoid defeat. A Willie Gibson cross was picked up by Craig Bryson, unfortunately Michael Fraser could only deflect the ball back off the post where Aime Koudou tapped in from a few yards out. Caley Jags were lucky to drew level in 21 mins when a lob into the Kilmarnock box was headed into his own net by an unfortunate Ross Ford. Kilmarnock went into the lead for the second time on 55 mins when Colin Nish scored from 18 yards. Caley Jags drew level again on 61 min with the best goal of the match when Don Cowie scored from a free-kick from 25 yards.

Craig Brewster acknowledged Caley jags were not as sharp as they have been in recent games: "We have to be happy with a point as I don't think we performed very well... Rugby Park is a difficult place to come... even though Kilmarnock have had injury problems... after our good performances recently, it is maybe difficult to keep up those standards... and we were a bit sloppy."

"I thought we equipped ourselves quite well, but Inverness were the better of the two sides," said Kilmarnock assistant manager Billy Brown. "We would have taken a point before kick off after all that's happened this week, especially against a team going as well as Caley Thistle."

"...we played tremendously well..."

ICT FC 4-2 Falkirk 29th September 2007

Caley Jags recent defeat to Celtic, John Hughes must have thought his side were going to have an easy time. Probably, anticipating a weak Caley Jags defence, he fielded three strikers and went for a 4-3-3 formation. Not a wise move as Caley Jags went on to claim their third win in a row and move above Gretna from  the bottom of the table. The opening goal came on 7 mins from Denis Wyness. A Ross Tokely cross was struck at goal by Marius Niculae but was blocked by keeper Tim Krul. Wyness was on hand to knock in the rebound. Russell Duncan added to the Caley Jags lead on 18 mins when his shot was deflected past the keeper. Falkirk replied on 27 mins when Kenny Milne netted following a Tam Scobbie free-kick. Caley Jags restored their two goal lead within five minutes after Ian Black scored when Niculae headed the ball down to him. Within a minute of the second half Falkirk got their second goal when Scott Arfield's 25-yard volley shot low past Michael Fraser. Wyness scored his second goal of the match on 54 mins. Despite a further two excellent opportunities for Wyness to get a hat-trick no further goals were scored in the match.

A very satisfied Craig Brewster said: "I thought we played tremendously well from the first minute to the last minute.The energy in the side just now is really good and we could have scored more if our final pass was better."

A reflective John Hughes said: "Going in at half-time three goals down you know you have a mountain to climb and we defended badly again. It's disappointing because we're a better football team than what we're showing at the moment."

"It was a good team performance..."

ICT FC 3-0 Gretna 25th September 2007

This CIS cup tie brought together the two SPL basement clubs for the first time this season. It was the home side that had the best of the early chances. Caley Jags controlled most of the play and were deserved winners of this meeting. Graham Bayne marked his return to the starting line-up when he headed home the opening goal on 21 mins. Barry Wilson increased the lead on 67 mins when he slotted home a low cross from Dennis Wyness. Then, on 80 mins Wyness scored the final goal of the evening when he tapped in a Ross Tokely through ball.

Craig Brewster commenting after the match said: "It was a good team performance and that's what I am looking for, a real solid unit with a back four protecting the goalkeeper, the midfield supporting the strikers and everyone plays their part, that's the bonus of having a real good team spirit , good unit and a good structure."

Celtic A 7-1 ICT FC A 25th September 2007

This reserves match was held at the Excelsior Stadium, Airdrie. With Caley Jags playing Gretna in a CIS Insurance Cup tie this evening many of the usual reserve team were missing.  Richie Hart was the only first team player fielded. Caley Jags went ahead after 9 mins. After the ball was handled in the box Hart scored from the resulting penalty. Although the Celtic team had the majority of the possession during the first half the Caley Jags managed to hold onto their lead until the break. Celtic started the second half with renewed vigour. Within 4 mins they were 2-1 up. Chris Killen scored 2 mins into the second half. This was followed on 49 mins by a goal from Jim O’Brien. O’Brien scored a second on 57 mins. Two mins later Darren O’Dea made it four. Jiri Jarosik added to the Celtic total on 64 mins. Killen scored his second of the afternoon on 77 mins. Paul McGowan made it 7-1 on 89 mins.

"This could be the turning point for us."

ICT FC 2-1 Hearts 22th September 2007

Caley Jags managed to get their first points of the season, taking all three from visiting Hearts. Hearts were first to score, largely against the flow of play, on 34 mins. An unfortunate Ian Black deflection saw Andrew Driver's cross sent into the home net. A Barry Wilson volley was parried by Steve Banks on 63 mins, it came down almost on the goal line and was knocked in by Denis Wyness. In the dying minutes of extra time an Alan Morgan cross was fired home by Craig Brewster.

Craig Brewster was pleased with the teams' first league win of the season: "A goal down from an own goal... but we didn't let the heads go down... we didn't make things happen in the first half... it was a really good second half performance and I kept believing we would get something. This could be the turning point for us."

Hearts assistant manager Stephen Frail acknowledged his side were "sloppy": "Passes went astray and we didn't really have the same level of performance as we had last week against Rangers... we handed the initiative to Inverness in the second half... credit to them for coming back into the game."

Hibernian A 1-2 ICT FC A 18th September 2007

This reserves match was held at Almondvale Stadium, Livingston. Caley Jags looked most likely to score first after a strong start. Then on 28 mins Alan Morgan made a penetrating run down the left wing. His cross into the box was met by Jake Inglis who netted the ball. It was only 4 mins before Hibs levelled the score when Damon Gray put the ball past Zibi Malkowski. Hibs were stronger in the second half and pushed the Caley Jags into their own half for most of the remainder of the game. However, another surging run by Morgan into the Hibs box saw him pulled down. The resulting penalty was put away by Dean McDonald on 80 mins.

"...we will always have a go..."

Celtic 5-0 ICT FC 15th September 2007

Caley Jags approached this match with their usual positive attitude and had a number of on target opportunities throughout the game. Unfortunately on form Celtic were the ones with the skill and experience to consistently finish their attacking moves. In brief, Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink scored on 15 mins, Massimo Donati made it two, 4 mins before the end of the first half. Caley Jags continued to fight back but it was Shunsuke Nakamura who scored from a spectacular 25 yarder on 56 minutes. Vennegoor of Hesselink then scored his second on 59 mins. Finally an own goal from Phil McGuire on 70 mins made it 5-0 for Celtic. However, honorable mentions to Dennis Wyness, Phil McGuire, Barry Wilson, and Marius Niculae who all had scoring chances. In the coming weeks when Caley Jags' luck improves, and they start scoring, they will still need to have a far tighter defence or it may not be enough to accumulate the points required.

Although heavily defeated, Craig Brewster was upbeat: "I don't know many teams who come to Celtic Park, play the way we did and create as many chances... we will always have a go... I have total confidence in the team."

Gordon Stachan acknowledged Caley Jags' contribution to an entertaining afternoon: "The enterprise Inverness showed surprised us. For a team at the bottom of the league to have their central midfielders trying to break beyond their strikers was a surprise for our defenders who are used to having opposition midfielders in front of them. They tried to get in behind us and had a smashing game."

"...absolutely terrific... some of the football was fantastic"

Hibernian 1-0 ICT FC 1st September 2007

Caley Jags went a goal down after 2 minutes from a penalty, and failed to equalize from a penalty on 36 minutes. However, the rest of the game was entertaining with Caley Jags dominating long periods of play, particularly in the first half. Steven Fletcher scored from the spot after Stuart McCaffrey was seen to handle the ball. Caley Jags had the opportunity to level the score when Robert Jones fouled Craig Brewster. Marius Niculae took the resulting penalty but it was saved by Yves Kalambay.

Craig Brewster said after the game: "We gave ourselves a mountain to climb after a minute... some of the football after that was absolutely terrific... we got a penalty and unfortunately the keeper saves it... in the second half we had a lot of shots from the edge of the box but never really troubled the keeper... but some of the football was fantastic."

John Collins was not satisfied with the Hibs performance: "We're not comfortable on the ball and there seems to be a bit of tension... I don't know where it's coming from but the good news is that we're still winning... and not playing well."

"a real body blow"

ICT FC 0-3 Dundee United 25th August 2007

After a very good first half which ended 0-0, Dundee United started the second with greater determination to take the points from this game. Their efforts were rewarded on 47 minutes when Sean Dillon's cross ended up in the back of the net. A further two goals resulted from Barry Robson's penalty kicks on 58 and 81 minutes. Not a happy day for Caley Jags supporters with some booing at the end from the singing section. The United supporters, although not large in number, were the most vocal and urged their team on far more effectively than the largely silent home support.

Commenting on the game, Donald Park said: "At the start of the second half we get a real body blow with the goal that we lose and because of the style of the goal it has knocked the stuffing out of us....  the second half was very disappointing although the first half was good... but at the end of the day it was the second half that counted."

Dundee United's Craig Levein acknowledged Caley Jags' dominance in the first half: "We were so far behind Inverness it was unbelievable and we were lucky the score was 0-0... In the second half we were miles better though and that is why we won the game."

"sloppy and slack defending"

St Mirren 2-1 ICT FC 18th August 2007

For the second Saturday in a row Caley Jags traveled away from home, played in the rain and lost by two goals to one. Also, like the previous week they played with determination and passion. Unfortunately, St Mirren were allowed to penetrate the defence twice and opportunities in front of the St Mirren net were not converted. Franco Miranda scored St Mirren's first goal after a 19 minutes period in which Caley Jags had made a strong start. The Buddies doubled their lead ten minutes into the second half with a goal from Mark Corcoran. Then three minutes later Caley Jags pulled one back when Don Cowie slid the ball into the net at close range following a cross from Marius Niculae. Caley Jags pressed hard for the remainder of the match but were unable to beat the St Mirren defence again.

After the match Donald Park was unhappy with the performance of the Caley Jags defending: "I'm disappointed with the result but I thought we played very well, especially in the midfield area... The only reason St Mirren scored these goals was down to our sloppy and slack defending."

Gus MacPherson was happy to see his team take their first points of the season and happy with the start made by Franco Miranda: "He has settled in very well, there a few aspects to look at obviously. It was a fantastic ball from Hugh Murray, a fantastic first touch and he finished well with his weaker foot."

"it's really disappointing"

Motherwell 2-1 ICT FC 11th August 2007

Caley Jags journeyed to Motherwell for their first away match of the new season. Last week's missing passion turned up and after a very close game Ross Tokely broke the deadlock on 82 minutes when he netted from a Don Cowie free kick. The Steelmen broke through the Caley Jags defense on a number of occasions over the 90 minutes, but were denied due to fine saves from Michael Fraser. However, the Caley Jags' lead only lasted three minutes before Phil O'Donnell headed home the equalizer. Motherwell went on to claim all three points when, on 90 minutes, sub Ross McCormack scored from the spot.

Charlie Christie was satisfied with the improvement in the teams performance since last week. However, he was disappointed with the performance during the last five minutes of play: "When you score a goal late in the game, you expect to defend it... it's a challenge to see the game out, and we didn't manage to do that today, so it's really disappointing."

Motherwell boss Mark McGhee acknowledged that the teams were fairly evenly matched today: "Inverness will be very disappointed to have lost this game... had they won, they would have stolen it the way we've stolen it, to a degree."

"There was no passion..."

ICT FC 0-3 Rangers 4th August 2007

The new SPL season started at Tulloch Caledonian Stadium with a 12:30 kick-off and a visit from Rangers. Two goals from Barry Ferguson on 16 and 90 minutes and one from Nacho Novo on 64 minutes ensured an easy win for Rangers and a drop to the bottom of the table for Caley Jags.

Graham Bayne had caused Rangers plenty of problems last season, but due to an injury he was not available today. Charlie Christie said: "... what it showed is just how important Graham Bayne is to us... there was no passion and not the requisite desire to win... make no mistake, there will be changes next week."

Rangers manager Walter Smith said: "We have had some difficult games here, so I'm obviously delighted to win this one... It was a good performance by us in difficult, very windy conditions."
