away dunfDunfermline 1-3 Inverness CT (aet)
William Hill Scottish Cup

Last night’s cup win was a surreal experience, watched from the Caley Thistle Social Club in Greig Street, insulated from the cold and rain that would have afflicted us had we been able to go down the road.

It’s a peculiar business, watching a game in the pub and much less common than it used to be now that everyone has sky. It only really seems to work if it’s a Scotland game and the place is packed cheek to jowl, but those who came along enjoyed the occasion. It’s more difficult to know what Williams, Doran and Gillet thought of it all.

The game it’s self didn’t really live up to its billing above the Barcelona v Real Madrid Copa del Rey extravaganza relegated to Sky2 in the listings and the first half was more messy than Messi, although Roman Golobart did his best to inject some Iberian skill into a tepid first half.

Tuffey took little time in this game to remind us that he is fine keeper – his distribution was quick and accurate all night. Of course, Inverness went a goal down in 40 minutes after Barrowman ghosted in at the back post and powered a header over Graeme Shinnie and past Tuffey. This cued universal gloom in the Caley Club, almost as much as for who scored as the fact that he did.

Half Time: Dunfermline 1-0 Inverness Caledonian Thistle

Half time was enriched by the arrival of pies for the masses, but I’m sure that Lager doesn’t have the same ring as Bovril. You could tell the athletes by their refusal to partake and their resultant waistlines. Its diets for the rest of us!

Inverness made a change for the second half, with the reintroduction of Andrew Shinnie for Cox and we immediately began to look more threatening.

In 54 minutes, that threat paid off and poor Chris Smith’s night imploded again. Put under pressure by a dreadful back header from Keddie, he battered the ball off Rutkiewicz and into the path of, you guessed; Jonny Hayes. He looked speechless, but that was more than made up for by his fans. You could have heard the derision in Fife.

Inverness were pressing for victory now, but Smith kept them at bay and forced extra time. Roman Golobart was taken off with a nasty looking ankle injury and replaced by David Proctor, and Terry Butcher will be praying that he will recover quickly. The big man was excellent at the back again, and if injured, he will be missed.

The prospect of penalties evidently didn’t appeal to Andrew Shinnie, who took all of 3 minutes to dispatch a sublime shot past Smith from the edge of the area. I doubt if he even saw it. Nick Ross had shown signs of his best after coming on for McKay, and he produced an exquisite take and pass on the left to Tansey. His placed effort finished the game there and then.

Full Time: Dunfermline 1-3 Inverness Caledonian Thistle (aet)

And so it is that we move on to a fifth round tie against Celtic at TCS. They will prove harder opponents without any doubt, but there is history there and hope springs eternal. It was a prospect that filled the Caley Club with anticipation and thanks to the players who came along, the Supporters Trust and the Club for organising things and Westie for his excellent hospitality. The final word though has to go to the 54 fans that took to the road and made it to East End Park. It’s far from easy midweek in January, but we heard you and saw you. Respect.
