Our toughest challenge to date but we have the advantage of being at home. No reason why we can't progress further in this competition especially if a fair number take advantage of the free entry to give the young lads some vocal backing.

 Great looking team of boys. Fit, sturdy, and  full of confidence. It also looks as if they are enjoying their games and being a player for Caley Thistle. I wish I could go and cheer them on.

Due to the rescheduled Ladbrokes Championship fixture v Brechin City on 28th November, we have agreed with Hibs & the SFA to reschedule this match in order to protect the pitch.  Information on the new date & time will be provided in due course.

Understandable, but tough on the youngsters who have already waited quite a while for this match.  Anyway, good luck to them whenever it goes ahead.

I wonder how likely is this to go ahead on Sunday.  After the recent postponements, due to waterlogging, plus the match at home against Dumbarton on Saturday, I imagine the pitch will be in a right old state by Sunday.  Even if playable, I imagine it will be extremely difficult to play on.  Tough on the youngsters, but, I suppose just as tough for the opposition.  Anyway, good luck to our lads.

If you have nothing to do today, pop down to the stadium and give the lads some support.

A decent run in the competition and a creditable result against a youth system far better resourced than our own.

Well done to the players and coaches.

that's a pity but Hibs will be making a substantial investment to their system so maybe the result should have been expected. well done.

I thought Hibs looked bigger, stronger and quicker than our lads, especially in the first half and could have added another couple before the break. They absolutely smashed one off the crossbar with a wind assisted 30 yard effort and scored a header from a corner, Josh Campbell pretty much unmarked in the box. We almost levelled straight from the kick off, an effort fired over from left side of the box.

Second half was more even especially towards the end of the game where we almost scored but for their 11 foot six inch keeper fingertipping an attempt away. Their winning goal was a break on the right and centre forward Ryan Porteous knocking in from close range. Andy Macrae scored from a stonewall penalty after Daniel Mackay was upended in the box, but were unable to hold on to that score for too long.

Guys can not be faulted for effort and had the wind kept it's force constant throughout the game we might have squared it but I suppose the marginally better side edged it.

Terrible day for a game of football, swirling wind giving more advantage to Hibs in the first half and abating slightly after the break which offered us little assistance.


Inverness CT - 1 (Macrae pen 61)

Starting XI : Hoban (GK), Stark, Harper, Brown McRitchie, Johnstone, Mackay, Chalmers, Foy, Macrae,  Wilson

Subs: Foster (GK), Smith, Fyffe, Macdonald, Macgregor, Hastings, Nicolson

Hibernian - 2 (Campbell 35, Porteous 68)

Starting XI : Dabrowski (GK), Donaldson, Mackie, Campbell, Waugh, Stirling, Watson, Woods, Paton, Murray, Gullan.

Subs: O'Connor, Gallantes, Porteous, Murray, Shanley
