Match report
Caley Thistle worked hard but lacked flair and finishing power. Queens created a chance in the 3rd minute when Steve Mallan was clear 15 yards out but hit it well over the bar. In 6 minutes a Sandy Robertson shot went just past and a minute later a Brian Thomson overhead kick in the box cleared the bar. The only goal came in the 11th minute when Bryce set up Mark Weir down the left. He reached the edge of the box and sent in a low angled drive which Jim Calder could only help on its way into the net. Queens had a good chance in the 23rd minute when Bryce lobbed a free kick over the 5 man wall only to see it deflected onto the bar. Three minutes later a Robertson header came off the bar and Sheerins follow up volley was stopped on the line by George Rowe. On 65 minutes Caley Thistle had a great chance but Rowe stopped a good Stewart effort on the line. With 15 minutes remaining Wilson had with only the keeper to beat but Mathieson came out decisively and blocked well. With 5 minutes left Barry Robson looked as if he was going to save the day when he bore down on goal but he was cynically fouled just outside the area by James Thomson. Robertson took the free kick but he curled it round the wall and just past the post. Time ran out for the Inverness side.
