Kilmarnock   1 - 1   Inverness CT

Kilmarnock v Inverness CT

Highlights - Kilmarnock 1-1 Inverness CT

A draw at Kilmarnock in a match dominated by the home side ended Inverness CT's hopes of a top-six Scottish Premier League finish.

Johny Hayes put the visitors ahead with a fine solo goal after a mazy run through the Killie defence.

But Liam Kelly replied instantly for the home side, levelling the match with a lob over goalkeeper Ryan Esson.

Kilmarnock continued to have the better of the play and William Gros missed an amazing chance from only two yards.

Both sides made three changes for a match that the visitors really needed to win if they were to entertain any hopes of making the top six.

Killie caretaker manager Kenny Shiels brought in Rui Miguel, Kelly and new arrival Ryan O'Leary for the injured Frazer Wright and Mohamadou Sissoko, with David Silva dropping to the bench, for his first home match in charge.

The visitors replaced Eric Odhiambo and the benched Russell Duncan and Grant Munro, with Kenny Gillet, Nick Ross and Aaron Doran coming in.

It was a quiet opening to the match, with neither side carving out a clear opportunity, but the visitors had the first attempt at goal when Ross Tokely's shot from a half-cleared corner was charged down.

However, Hayes then lit the game up when he went on a mazy run, dribbling past two defenders before slotting the ball low past Anssi Jaakkola to put the visitors ahead.

But Kelly replied instantly for Killie, with a fantastically weighted lob over Esson from the edge of the box.

William Gros put the ball into the back of the Inverness net shortly after, but the assistant referee's flag went up and the goal was ruled out.

Alexei Eremenko was pulling the strings in midfield for Kilmarnock. But, despite spraying fine passes into dangerous areas, none of his team-mates were able to quite connect in a threatening position.

However, the Ayrshiremen did go close when Rui Miguel's backward header from Craig Bryson's cross flashed a fraction wide of the post.

The visitors were on the back foot, but Hayes managed to pick out Lee Cox in the box only for the midfielder's shot to flash wide.

Jaakkola almost handed the advantage back to the visitors when he let a Doran free kick squirm from his hold, but the Finn managed to recover before the ball crossed the line, sparing his blushes.

Inverness changed systems in the second half, replacing top scorer Adam Rooney with midfielder Gavin Morrison and leaving Richie Foran on his own up front.

However, Killie continued to have the bulk of play and Esson had to look smart to save from Miguel after Bryson beat defender Chris Hogg and crossed the ball.

Killie then carved Inverness open. But, after Eremenko set up Gros only two yards out, the Frenchman somehow contrived to head the ball wide and was promptly substituted.

Esson then tipped a dangerous cross from Garry Hay over the bar with the mis-hit ball looking as though it may sneak into the net.

The home side remained in charge in the latter stages of the match, ending the Highlanders' dream of top-six football in their first season back in the SPL, with Motherwell's draw at Hearts giving the spoils to them.
