Match report
The game started well for the visitors when Richard Hastings went clean through the Forfar defence in the 10th minute but he failed to score.

Forfar took control and in 17 minutes a rebound fell to Morgan who blasted it home.

Inverness came back in the second half and were denied twice by Arthur after excellent strikes by Teasdale & Thomson.

Thomson made it 1-1 from the penalty spot in 75 minutes after Teasdale was brought down but Forfar quickly hit back. Substitute Hannigan proved to be the match winner as he strode through the visitors defence and set up goals for Higgins in the 81st and 87th minutes. A disappointing afternoon for the Inverness team.
