17/02/2001 (Scottish Cup 4th Round) INVERNESS CT 1-1 Kilmarnock:
Two late goals were the topic of this game. A Barry Robson goal was cancelled out by Garry Hay meaning a replay was to be played.
06/03/2001 (Scottish Cup 4th Round replay) Kilmarnock 2-1 INVERNESS CT:
Even though Davide Xausa put the 1st Division side in front, McGowne and Wright made sure that Kilmarnock were the team to go through. Ally McCoist came on as a sub for Kilmarnock.
23/10/2004 (SPL) Kilmarnock 2-2 INVERNESS CT:
After going down twice Inverness deservedly earned their first away point in the SPL. Barry Wilson cancelled out MurrayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s opener but then Kilmarnock went ahead through a good goal by Greer. Craig MacKay wrongly sent off McCaffrey after 51 minutes but even though down to 10 men Inverness worked hard and deservedly Liam Fox scored his first ever goal for Inverness with a late equaliser.
04/01/2005 (SPL) INVERNESS CT 0-2 Kilmarnock:
ICT ended their stay at Pittodrie with a loss as Killie stopped the good form the team were in. 2 goals by Invincible late on meant Inverness started 2005 off bad. The team could have played better according to some of the ICT fans on the Message Board.

PLAYERS TO WATCH
Ian Black (Inverness CT): The Scotland future-squad midfielder is a key part of the Inverness CT squad. Black was signed by John Robertson from Blackburn in 2004 and featured heavily for the reserves that season although was given his chance towards the end of the season with Brewster in charge due to some good appearances in the reserve league. He impressed in the first team and kept his place in the squad for the majority of season 2005/2006. A small player who can jump twice his height always shows 100% and has the ability to become a really good player. He so far hasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t showed his form of last season but I am sure he will in the near future, starting on Saturday.
Steven Naismith (Kilmarnock): Steven is a brilliant forward with a bright future ahead of him. Already been watched by Arsenal scouts, he will no doubt move down to England in the not so distant future. However since the Arsenal scouts watched him, he has seemed to go off form at the moment. He hasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t scored in the last six games although has scored against both the Old Firm already. A really hard player to play against and one Inverness CT will have to mark well in order to keep a clean sheet.
