First Team Debuts

Milestones

An even first half where both sides had efforts cleared from the goalmouth produced no goals with defences on top. The wind was causing as much havoc as the officials. Sean Welsh fired just wide at the start of the second half, but he made no mistake with a free kick on the hour to open the scoring. Plenty of huff and puff thereafter, but no further scoring and it's the Caley Jags that go into tomorrows draw for the next round.

That draw has now been made and we will travel to Easter Road to take on Hibernian on the weekend of the 29th February.

from BBC Sport
In blustery, wet conditions, the first chance fell to the visitors but Steve Lawson pulled his shot wide from the edge of the area.

Scott Pittman struck over the bar from inside the box and Ciaron Brown and Ricki Lamie had headers cleared off the line.

For Inverness, Welsh tugged a shot wide and Storey also had an effort cleared off the line and fired over the crossbar.

The breakthrough came when Storey was fouled 20 yards from goal by Steve Lawless and Welsh powered in a right-footed strike.

As Storm Ciara made her presence felt in the Highland capital, the visitors pushed for an equaliser.

Substitute Craig Sibbald had a shot from outside the box cleared by Brad McKay and Dykes' volley went straight at Inverness keeper Mark Ridgers as the home side prevailed.
