Last Meeting

Dundee had to settle for a point from a scrappy goalless draw at home to Inverness Caledonian Thistle in August. Both sides tried hard in warm and humid conditions but neither could do enough to deserve three points in a game that offered little to thrill the fans. The Dark Blues had a slight edge for most of the match but the visitors might have sneaked victory at the end as Dundee went for all out attack with their substitutions.

Inverness Caledonian Thistle’s Season So Far

Inverness enjoyed a superb pre season with wins over Clachnacuddin, Strathspey Thistle, Forres Mechanics, Rothes and St Johnstone and draws with Aberdeen and Hearts.

Their competitive season started with a trip to Balmooor Stadium to face Peterhead in the Betfred Cup but it didn’t go to plan as the game ended 0-0 and the Blue Toon took the bonus point by winning the penalty shoot out 11-10.

They recovered in their second group game when they defeated Raith Rovers 4-1 at the Caledonian Stadium and in their next group game managed to get past Cove Rangers with a 3-2 win with Cove having a last minute goal disallowed.

Their final group game was a visit to the Kilmac stadium and a Danny Johnson goal was enough to send the Dark Blues through and knock Thistle out.

Caley’s Championship campaign started disastrously with a 4-1 defeat at Tannadice but won their first home league game 2-1 against newly promoted Arbroath.

A third seasonal visit to the City of Discovery saw a 0-0 draw with Dundee before wins against Morton, Dunfermline and Queen of the South.

A surprise defeat at home to bottom of the league was followed by an excellent 2-0 win at high flying Ayr before dropping two points at the Caledonian Stadium to Alloa and losing at Morton.

A long midweek trip to Dumfries was rewarded with a 2-0 win over Queen of the South but a double Tayside defeat to Dundee United and then Arbroath keeps ICT just inside the play off positions.

In the Tunnocks Caramel Wafer Cup Inverness recorded home wins over Morton and Alloa to set up a quarter-final tie with League Two Clyde.
