Inverness Caley Thistle 2 Dunfermline 0

Dunfermline’s hopes of Championship survival were dented as their unbeaten run was halted by an on-form Caley Thistle.

No goals in the first half but 13th minute of the second half proved unlucky for the Pars. Duffy was forward to earn a free kick 25 yards out and from the setpiece Welsh drove the ball into Ambrose in the Pars wall. The ball dropped to the right side towards McALEAR, the on loan Norwich City player drove a stinger of a shot into the far side of the net. 1-0

Thirteen minutes from the end, Austin SAMUELS, who had just replaced Billy McKay, with his first involvement ran through on to a Doran ball to score. 2-0
