Caley Thistle had their chances, indeed they had a goal chalked off, but over the 90 minutes they had few answers for when Motherwell asked questions of them and for the first time in a while we can have no complaint about the final outcome.

130216 mwell_ashinnie_001An unchanged ICT side started well winning a quick corner with G.Shinnie volleying over from the resulting cross. Motherwell introduced youngster Kallum Higginbotham to the side in place of the suspended Keith Lasley and he went close early on sending a long range dipper just wide.

Caley Thistle then had pretty much their most dominating spell of the match, first started off by a lovely move in the centre of the park which found its way out to Aaron Doran who's cross was headed over by Billy McKay.

130216 mwell_doran_001A.Shinnie had a shot from the edge of the area saved by Darren Randolph before another mesmeric move by the boys in blue was halted before McKay got the chance to pull the trigger.

Owain Tudur Jones saw his effort from 20 yards go wide (hints of a deflection) before A.Shinnie thought he'd given Inverness the lead, Randolph fumbling Doran's rasper but the Scotsman’s follow up was deemed to be offside.

On the half hour Motherwell looked to have taken the lead after Henrik Ojaama's shot deflected off team mate Higdon sending the ball just past the post.

130216 mwell_mckay_001The Steelmen did get the opener soon after through a rather fortuitous cross cum shot from Ojaama which found Higdon all alone at the back post to tap Motherwell in front.

Doran went close once more 10 minutes before the break, firing over from David Raven's cutback before Higginbotham found himself in plenty of space but his attempted lob over Ryan Esson failed spectacularly and Inverness were let off the hook.

HT: Motherwell 1 ICT 0

A word in their ear from the boss and Inverness looked set to level the game up within a minute of the restart after Doran played in Nick Ross but the 21 year old shot over with only Randolph to beat.

130216 mwell_raven_001However ICT's hopes of a comeback were scuppered when another goal laced with more than a bit of luck and a handball saw Motherwell 2 up. Nicky Law getting onto the loose ball in the box to smash in from close range for a goal which shouldn't of stood.

Four minutes later and once again an arm in the box left ICT feeling aggrieved after Ross Draper's volley clearly struck the arm of a Motherwell player but once again Ewen Murray waved play on.

Still reeling from that ICT were caught cold as 'Well added a third thanks to a great volley from Higdon, finding the bottom corner for his second of the game.

130216 mwell_polwarth_001Law hit the crossbar late on and Chris Humpreys saw his shot hit the side-net as Motherwell closed out the game to leapfrog ICT into second and leaving Butcher's boys feeling that once again they just didn't get the rub of the green.

Not great then but its onwards and upwards, we received praise from the Motherwell support for actually turning up and trying to play football and its something which we'll continue to do till the end of the season. Hearts up next and a chance to get some revenge on our League Cup conquerors.
