5 SPL games, 5 losses... that's the bottom line at the end of today's game as Caley Thistle made their worst ever start to a season. However, terrible though it is, today there were signs of hope.
For long periods of today's game Caley Thistle dominated Hibs and if it was not for some good goalkeeping from Ma-Kalambay, including a penalty save from Marius Niculae, the outcome may have been a lot different.
Both Niculae and Brewster had numerous chances but couldn't grab the goal that would cancel out Steven Fletcher's 2nd minute penalty.
