Preview- Inverness (a)

Last updated : 30 November 2006 By Firparkcorner

And we have every chance of getting it. Not only did we win twice in Inverness last year but they are on a very poor run of form and have failed to score in their last three matches. Their style is much more suited to playing us at Fir Park than at home. If we can sit back and keep things tight it will force them to chase the game and that is not on of their strengths. Dargo seems to be having a bit of a slow season and if we can contain the troublesome Bayne we could be in for a quiet afternoon at the back. As the game progresses we would then hope to draw out their defence so McDonald and Clarkson can get in behind the likes of Dods and Munro – big guys who are good in the air but not great on the deck.

Craigan will presumably be a late decision and Martyn Corrigan will no doubt take another place on the bench. Ross McCormack may even join him there after his scoring comeback to the reserves in mid-week. A big question mark will hang over the goalie position as Meldrum looked at fault for Falkirk's first last week even if we went on to win the game. However it would be a brave decision to change the 'keeper on the back of a win when his mistake was not a total howler.

Inverness have been tinkering with their side in recent weeks in a bid to snap out of their poor form. Rankin was dropped last week, as was Bayne, and if neither of those two come back we can probably consider ourselves lucky. Regardless this is a match we must be looking to win although a point would not be a disaster. The 'Well fans will get to come home happy though after a hard fought 1-0 win.
