Ok, we’re not nearly as good as we perhaps thought we were. That wasn’t our strongest starting XI but big improvement still needed.

Performance not great today. Bit of a worry how easily Stirling created chances against us. I am sure the manager will have identified areas of concern. Disappointing after the performance and result

When we kept with the ball on the deck we looked interesting. We’d do 10/12 passes then someone would lose patience and try a useless chip into ‘space’ ….in a howling gale! Patience !!

The wind could make conditions interesting this afternoon.

 

Speak to a pharmacist. I am sure that they will recommend something to alleviate it.

League Cup

 

Second game of the season has Stirling Albion coming North to face the Caley Jags with both sides getting off to a winning start in their opening group 'A' fixture. The Bino's went to Cove and came away with an excellent 3-2 win and Inverness defeated Peterhead 2-0 in Billy Dodds first game flying solo. The match is a 3:00pm kick-off on Saturday afternoon with home fans only allowed in the stadium under current covid restrictions.

OFFICIAL PREVIEW

INFO

 

We comfortably beat Peterhead on Tuesday night thanks to two fantastic second half strikes. Manny Duku opened his account with a tight finish from sixteen yards and Aaron Doran thundered in a swerving 30 yarder to complete the scoring. Inverness were rarely troubled and eased home with Peterhead winless after two games.

Stirling edged out Cove in an entertaining five goal game at Balmoral Stadium. Rabin Omar put Stirling in at the break a goal to the good. Nathan Flanagan doubled the advantage early in the second half but a Fraser Fyvie double looked likely to take the tie to a penalty shoot-out. Note that Vigurs is credited with the assists for both Cove goals. However Flanagan scored again in stoppage time to win the game for the visitors.

Bino's starting XI v Cove Rangers:

Currie; Cummins, McLean, McGregor, McNiff, Laird, Leitch, Omar, Flanagan, Moore, Mackin

Latest Team News

Robbie Deas has returned to full training and Billy Mckay will return to full training, possibly next week. Anthony McDonald has been on light training and will be stepping up his rehab with full training soon.

Looks like we will be along similar lines to the Peterhead game. Manny Duku and Kirk Broadfoot caught the eye on Tuesday night with Aaron Doran, Sean Welsh and Tom Walsh looking spritely.

At the ground, looking forward to this one on a sunny afternoon.

Have just come in from the garden, where we are roasting at 27C, and it is expected to go higher. 

Will be closing the blinds and firing up the televisual apparatus.

Ice-cream for half-time.

:crazy:

That wasn’t in the script! 0-1. Direct free kick after foul by MacGregor. They’ve started on the front foot. We were down to 10 when the foul was committed as Carson had a heavy knock. He’s back on though.

Stirling playing like they want it more. Need to get out of second gear.

Good finish by MacGregor after patient build up. We can win this. Carson really struggling after that early knock.

1-2 HT.

Probably a deserved lead for Stirling but the ref certainly hasn't done us any favours.

Disappointing 45. Stirling started flying and the early goal came from a free kick following a corner. Carson was injured in the build up but looks to have shaken it off.

Since then we’ve had all the ball, but Stirling opened us up for their second.

MacGregor got us back in it with a decent finish, then Welsh went off with what looked like a knock.

Stirling look much better than Peterhead, and this is a bigger test than perhaps expected.

We are not playing as well as on Tuesday and have spurned a few decent chances. We are not getting Walsh on the ball at all, similarly Gardyne.

Our defence does not seem as organised or composed as on Tuesday despite being the same four starters.

We need to watch Stirling on the break as they are pacy, but I still feel we can win this. The next goal is vital.

Still work to do. Stirling have just hit post after a quick break with Cammy well beaten.

Losing patience with Duku.  Wasted a free kick, when he could have tapped it to Doran, who had the gap between the wall and the other clump of players in front of him.

And as I type this, Duku is subbed.

Penalties.

We can’t complain as just not clinical enough today.

Doran missed our best chance late on.

A lot of my optimism from Tuesday has receded I’m afraid.

Obviously disappointing and unacceptably slack and complacent in the first half hour.

No doubt a bad day at the office with the defence being exposed for more than just the two goals that went in.

However, it was only our second competitive match after a disrupted pre season so I am not inclined to read too much into it regards our prospects for the season.

Much better expected next time out though.
