From Dundee Fc  official website http://dundeefc.co.uk/news/20s-lose-caley/

The U20s were beaten 1-0 by Inverness Caley Thistle in the Development League. Jamie Wilson’s strike midway through the second half was enough for the Caley Jags to secure all three points. The Dee’s put out a strong starting 11 that featured the likes of James McPake, Nick Ross and Nicky Low.

The Dark Blues started brightly, and would have been ahead after four minutes of not for an excellent piece of goalkeeping by Daniel Hoban. Nick Ross flicked Ian Smith’s cross into the path of Yordi Teijsse, but the Dutchman’s low first time effort was kept out by the Caley keeper.

Hoban was called into action two minutes later, this time denying Kyle Clark. The wingback’s volley from Conor Quigley’s cross bringing another fine save out of Hoban.

Caley were beginning to grow into the game, and had their first chance after 27 minute’s courtesy of Kier Smith. The striker firing into the side netting from a tight angle.

Teijsse had another opportunity after 34 minutes, the striker did well to bring the ball down on his chest inside a crowded penalty area, but was unable to keep his effort on target. As half time approached Nick Ross picked out Michael Duffy at the back post, but the winger couldn’t generate enough power on his acrobatic volley.

With just over an hour gone, Inverness took the lead. Jamie Wilson’s initial shot was well blocked by Kerr Waddell, but the ball broke back to the winger who fired past Kyle Gourlay from just inside the penalty area.

Dundee were now searching for the equaliser and sent on Taylor Berry, Mark Smith and Connor Coupe in place of Ross, McPake and Teijsse.

Berry won a free kick on the edge of the Inverness box after 72 minutes, but Duffy’s effort went straight into the wall. As Dundee pressed and probed looking for a goal, the visitors nearly added a second. The ball broke loose to Struan McArthur inside the penalty area, but his effort was straight at Gourlay, who gathered the ball at the second time of asking.

As the game entered its closing stages, Dundee continued to press. Duffy’s effort from distance brought a save out of Hoban before Berry sent a volley from the top of the box just wide of the mark. In the last minute of the game Clark teed up Coupe, but the substitute fired over from the top of the box, as Inverness held on for all three points.

This result will be a tough one to stomach for the Dees, who become the first team that Inverness have beaten on the road in the Development League this season. One positive is the 70 minutes that James McPake got under his belt as he continues his comeback from injury. Next up for the U20s is the second “wee derby” of the season against Dundee United on Friday, which provides the perfect opportunity to bounce back from today’s defeat.

Subs Unused: Ferrie

Booked: McPake, Waddell, Low

A young ICTFC u20s lifted themselves of the foot of the table with a 1-0 victory over the Buddies at a cold Grant Street Park. ICTFC dominated the first half and could have been 3 or 4 up if it hadn't been for the woodwork. However St Mirren nearly took the lead early with a shot from 5 yards which brought an excellent reflex save from young Hoban. ICTFC took the lead in the 24th minute with Jason Brown claiming the honours. The second half saw the Saints on the ascendancy but ICTFC held on to claim all three points and a clean sheet. The U20s themselves have been on the ascendancy, 2 clean sheets in the last 3 games and only narrowly losing against Celtic 1 nil on Friday. Indeed the boys have only lost 1 in the last 8 games. Now 14 points of the top of the table when once we were 14 points of 2nd bottom. Well done lads

Yes, one of my favourite ever games (well, the last 5 minutes, plus ET and penalty shoot out).  Nick Ross's finest hour?

So, hibs, top of the Development League, are allowed to take in an emergency signing, but ICT with no fit GK's aren't allowed a game to be postponed....? Hmmm double standards from the SPFL.....surely not?

The improvement continues. If the development squad can drag themselves off the bottom then so can the first team.

But did you notice that the Dev team only came good when the first team hit bad form? It's like we can only have one of the teams doing well!

Dean Ebbd scored the first, the second was knocked in after he threw a shot against the post.

Get the Leinster Lukaku in the XI against Partick.

Excellent win, Good to see Ebbe scored, proves he can do it at that level. Looking forward to his first team debut, could be that we now have real choice up front.

Interesting to note a Canadian  International player on trial, I am looking forward to reading about his performance, he could be the one to shore up our defence.

Fingers crossed.

What a turnaround for the young 'uns. Brilliant - whatever the magic dust was, we need it sprinkled on the first team!
