Highland Hiccup

Although this was billed as a friendly, Inverness were keen to avenge their Scottish Cup season, and certainly made the more lively start. Although the Aberdeen were under pressure for periods of the game, it was a source of disappointment that they could only muster one shot on target in the game. It was the return of Inverness striker lain Stewart that proved decisive as the Caley Thistle man scored the only goal of the game after 56 minutes. He will probably never score an easier goal as he headed home after a Tokley cross deceived Preece in the Aberdeen goal and came back of the crossbar.
Robbie Winters and David Rowson both scorned easy chances in the first half, and Jess and Zerouali also missed further openings in the second. Former Don Dennis Wyness was unlucky after 76 minutes when his shot crashed off the bar, but it was a source of concern for Ebbe Skovdahl that his makeshift defence struggled against the lively Inverness forwards.
Aberdeen's problems were compounded with the loss of Russell Anderson, who limped off after 15 minutes, to be replaced by young Kevin Rutkiewicz.
