    Hearts 1-0 Inverness CT - League Cup

    Over and Out


    Inverness slumped out of the League Cup in unsurprising fashion after a 1-0 defeat at Tynecastle, Jamie Walker with a second half goal enough for the dominant Jambo's. Michael Gardyne was sent off just before the ninety minutes for a rash scissors tackle on Walker to add to our woes. The League Cup; its not for everyone, meh!

    A promising start to the game became more diluted as time passed and Inverness had Mark Ridgers to thank on numerous occasions for keeping the scoreline blank. He saved from Boyce, Pollock twice and Gnanduillet in a more even first half. Craig Gordon was quieter but still had to make vital saves from McAlear, and Walsh. After the break the visitors were rarely seen as an attacking force with Mackay-Steven forcing Ridgers into action and Gnanduillet and Pollock both hitting the same post within the same move.  Gnanduillet and Boyce put substitute Jamie Walker through and he won the tie with an excellent drilled finish from the edge of the box. Ridgers denied Walker a second two minutes later parrying the ball away and minutes later he used his legs to thwart the same player. We had time for another Ridgers save from Walker before Gardyne had seen enough of him receiving a straight red for his rash challenge.

    Suffice to say Mark Ridgers was our MotM and Jamie Walker's introduction gave Hearts more of a cutting edge.
