King Carl's crowning comeback. Inverness breezed past the Dons u20 side at Glebe Park, Brechin to score their eighth goal at the same venue in just eight days. Riccardo Calder scored as early as the fourth minute and Liam Polworth added a second, with David Raven also scoring before the break. The young Dons stuck to the task and were rewarded with a goal when a short pass back saw the keepers clearance cannon off Seb Ross. Comeback king Carl of Tremarco was a second half sub and he crowned his day with a late goal. A bit of naughtyness and afters saw Frank Ross and Charlie Trafford go for an early bath before Bruce Anderson scored a last minute consolation for Aberdeen. Hardly a game to get the pulses racing, but it was great to see Carl Tremarco (@tommytremarco3) make his comeback, and he topped his day off by scoring the fourth for Inverness. It turned out to be a decent game though with opportunities at both ends of the park. Disappointing that the main strikers are still not scoring, but the win will breed confidence which is something that has been lacking recently. There's a full detailed report in the Highland News ymip from the middle aged team made these observations based on what he saw today. Very much a game of two halves. First half we looked pretty comfortable and had all but put the game to bed against a pretty shaky Dons side. Second half was very disappointing and highlighted how weak we are in defence. We also appear to lack a cutting edge up front. The goals we're scoring are coming from midfield. As far as I can see we have signed some very average players and look particularly fragile at the back. Communication between a very unconvincing keeper and similarly limited defenders looks very suspect and needs to be addressed as a matter of urgency. Good to see Tremarco back and scoring. One player I do like the look of is Trafford but his needless reaction to an appalling tackle from Frank Ross which led to a red card for both players was totally unnecessary and hugely frustrating. I'm praying for an away game in Ireland in next round. Only chance of European football we're likely to experience for the foreseeable future.

Back to Back at Brechin. Inverness are in action again at Glebe Park on Saturday in the Irn Bru Challenge Cup against Aberdeen Colts. This game could see long term injury victim Carl Tremarco make a return to competitive action. The tenacious left back has been out for four months after suffering a cruciate ligament injury against Motherwell back in April. Looks as though he will start on the bench. Gary Warren will sit this one out and Zak Elbouzedi and Aaron Doran remain sidelined. Coll Donaldson will get a start as will Alex Cooper. There's a full and detailed Preview on the official ICTFC Website.
