    Inverness CT 3-1 Morton - Report

     

    Play Off Despair

     

    Ahead of kick off it was out of our hands with Queens Park holding all the aces. To escape the play offs, we had to better what Queens Park did against Airdrie. First and foremost we had to ensure we did not lose and hope that the Spiders dropped points at Hampden versus the Diamonds on the last night of the regular season. Both sides were missing some important players for this game with Morton undefeated in their last five visits to the Caledonian Stadium.

    It was a lovely evening for a game of football, what could possibly go wrong? Well, what did go wrong was Queen's Park beat an understrength Airdrie 2-0 at Hampden, therefore despite beating Morton 3-1, Inverness head for the play-offs. Morgan Boyes opened the scoring with a thumping volley after half an hour. Kirk Broadfoot benefited from slack defending to level before the break then proceeded to earn the wrath of the home support with an embarrassing celebration in front of the North Stand. Cammy Harper relieved Billy Mckay of penalty kick duties and duly slotted home from the spot ten minutes after the break. The scoring was completed just after the hour when Sean McAllister drilled home into the bottom corner. Robbie Muirhead had been sent off for simulation then taking a wee fit to himself and was promptly sent off after 58 minutes just after Harper had knocked in his penalty kick, probably aggrieved that he never earned a spot kick for his dramatic dive.

    When news of Queen's Park going two up filtered through to the North Stand and the familiar tactic of sideways passing reared it's ugly head, the home fans turned their frustration to the main culprit, and  chants of Gardiner Gardiner GTF rang round the home end.

    So, it's off to meet the Gable Endies for us on Tuesday 7th May with the return at the Caledonian Stadium on Saturday 11th May.

    Full Time 3-1

    image.pngAlex Samuel was injured after 69 minutes and that will be a blow should he miss out in the play-offs. Hopefully just a precaution.

    Samson Lawal looked up for it when he came on and gave us another dimension. Cammy Harper did brilliantly to ignore the distraction attempts by keeper Ryan Mullen before slotting the penalty in. Robbie Muirhead. What a tool! Having been booked he then put himself in the referee's face before angrily leaving the pitch and kicking anything within his reach. 😂 How's yer toes this morning ya rocket?🚀 🪐 🚀
