    Hibernian v ICT - Preview

      Teaser Paragraph:

    hibernian2_50.gifSo then Mr Brewster, will it be a 4-4-2, or a 4-2-3-1, or a 4-5-1, or a 4-3-3 or something else? Whatever it is, after the midweek loss at Motherwell, it is vital Inverness CT start to pick up some points again on the road. Sadly the away form seems to have gone from bad to worse with the last win away on the 22nd December against Hearts.

    Brewster’s team selection on Wednesday raised some eyebrows with no Marius Nicuale, Ian Black dropped to the bench, and Barry Wilson still nowhere to be seen. Surely Saturday will bring more changes to the starting 11.

    Draws: 1 (1 League, 0 Cup)

    Hibernian: 5 wins (4 League, 1 Cup)


    For this weeks game to remember we take you back to one of the biggest wins in this fixture. It took place at the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium in the SPL on the 02/03/2005. This was Inverness’ only second game in Inverness in the SPL after ground sharing with Aberdeen for the first half of the season. Inverness out played Hibs for the whole game and deserved their 3-0 victory. Goals came from Juanjo, Brewster and Wilson. The attendance was 4443.


    The teams were as follows:


    INVERNESS CT: Brown, Tokely, Munro, Dods, Golabek, Wilson, Hart, Duncan, McBain, Brewster, Juanjo.

    Subs- Proctor (for Hart), Bayne (for Brewster), Fatai (for Juanjo), Fraser, McCaffrey, Hastings, Prunty.

    HIBERNIAN: Simon Brown, Whittaker, Caldwell, Smith, Murphy, Orman, Antonio Murray, Ian Murray, Scott Brown, O’Connor, Riordan.


    Subs- Shiels (for Orman), McDonald (for A.Murray), Sproule (for I.Murray), Brown, McCluskey, Morrow, Konte.


    The referee was John Underhill and there were three bookings on the day all for Hibernian: Antonio Murray, Murphy and Ian Murray. Seven of the Inverness players who started the match still play for the club (including Brewster who has returned).



    • All League meetings between the teams have taken place in the SPL. The Scottish cup tie last month was the first cup tie between the teams.
    • In the last 5 games of this fixture, the home team has always won.
    • The away team has not scored in this fixture in the last 6 meetings!
    • Barry Wilson is the top scorer in this fixture with 5 goals.
    • In Craig Brewster’s first spell at the club, his opening game was away to Hibernian. Brewster has now gone 2 rounds of SPL fixtures since returning to the club.
    • Inverness CT are one of Hibernian’s bogey team!!


    5 goals: Barry Wilson (ICT)

    3 goals: Derek Riordan (Hibs), Fletcher (Hibs)

    2 goals: Juanjo (ICT), Niculae (ICT)

    1 goal: Brewster (ICT), Proctor (ICT), Wyness (ICT), Dods (ICT),

    Beuzilin (Hibs), Killen (Hibs), McBain (ICT)


    Phil McGuire (Inverness CT): Having signed for the club in the January transfer window thanks to a successful loan spell, Phil will need to work on his discipline. In his 16 games for the club, he has chalked up 7 yellow cards and 1 red card. After returning from a 3 game suspension last Saturday, he has already got another yellow against Motherwell in midweek. A decent player who has formed a solid relationship with captain Munro


    John Rankin (Hibernian): The ex-Inverness CT midfielder has had a decent start at his new club in Edinburgh . He has featured in 5 games and has already scored his first goal against Dundee Utd away. Moved for a 6-figure fee and is settling into Mixu’s plans very well. I hope he continues to do well, but not this weekend!
