St Mirren   1 - 2   Inverness CT

St Mirren v Inverness CT

Highlights - St Mirren v Inverness CT

An Eric Odhiambo brace proved the difference as Inverness CT grabbed a vital away victory in Paisley.

The home side dominated the first half, but were made to pay for not taking their chances when Odhiambo drilled a shot past Paul Gallacher.

Odhiambo doubled his tally early in the second half, firing home after picking up a fine Jonny Hayes pass.

Paul McGowan rifled in a terrific volley to give St Mirren a lifeline, but they could not find a leveller.

Both sides were eager to press the game in the early stages, with the result that no player was able to have time on the ball to deliver any pass of telling quality.

Although long balls were being played at frenetic speed to get the ball to the forwards quickly, neither side's frontmen were able to carve out any opportunity in the opening period of the match.

The visitors had the first opportunity when Nick Ross, on for the injured David Proctor, fired in a low drive which beat Buddies keeper Gallacher but struck the outside of the post and went out for a goal kick.

David Van Zanten then fired in a shot for St Mirren as the match began to liven up but Ryan Esson pulled off a fine save to tip the ball round the post.

Buddies substitute Paul McQuade then saw a long-range chipped effort tipped over the bar by Esson to keep the scores level.

Lee Mair then went close for the home side with a header which beat Esson but slipped agonisingly wide of the post as St Mirren stepped up a gear.

However, out of nothing, the home side found themselves a goal down when Odhiambo fired in a left-footed angled drive after a neat exchange of passes at the edge of the box to break the deadlock.

Inverness struck again on the counter-attack shortly after the restart as Odhiambo picked up on a fine Hayes pass to slip the ball over Gallacher and double his side's lead.

The match had turned on its head and Caley Thistle almost went three ahead when Hayes' header hit the outside of the woodwork and bounced clear.

St Mirren were leaving themselves open at the back as they pushed forward, and Adam Rooney was left one-on-one with Gallacher, but the former Scotland international did well to beat the ball away for a corner.

However, with the game seemingly drifting to full time, McGowan handed St Mirren a late lifeline with a fierce volley from the edge of the box which beat Esson.

The home side pushed for what would have been a dramatic equaliser, with McQuade going closest, but could not find a way past the Highland rearguard.
