A GAME TO REMEMBER
For this weeks game to remember we take you back to the biggest win in this fixture. It took place at the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium in the SPL on the 02/03/2005. This was InvernessÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ only second game in Inverness in the SPL after ground sharing with Aberdeen for the first half of the season. Inverness out played Hibs for the whole game and deserved their 3-0 victory. Goals came from Juanjo, Brewster and Wilson. The attendance was 4443.
The teams were as follows:
INVERNESS CT: Brown, Tokely, Munro, Dods, Golabek, Wilson, Hart, Duncan, McBain, Brewster, Juanjo.
Subs- Proctor (for Hart), Bayne (for Brewster), Fatai (for Juanjo), Fraser, McCaffrey, Hastings, Prunty.
HIBERNIAN: Simon Brown, Whittaker, Caldwell, Smith, Murphy, Orman, Antonio Murray, Ian Murray, Scott Brown, OÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Connor, Riordan.
Subs- Shiels (for Orman), McDonald (for A.Murray), Sproule (for I.Murray), Brown, McCluskey, Morrow, Konte.
The referee was John Underhill and there were three bookings on the day all for Hibernian: Antonio Murray, Murphy and Ian Murray. Eight of the Inverness players who started the match still play for the club. Only Craig Brewster, Juanjo and Mark Brown have left.

PLAYERS TO WATCH
Michael Fraser (ICT): The Caley Thistle young goalkeeper has waited years for this moment, to see a man he has learned so much from leave the club. Fraser has waited patiently for this moment and now he has the chance to make the no.1 place his own. This is after Mark BrownÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s shock move to Celtic just a few days ago. Fraser has started only 2 games for Inverness CT, and has come on as a sub 2 times as well. From what we have seen, he looks like he could have the potential to do well in the SPL consistently; however Christie will be looking to give him some competition for the goalkeeperÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s jersey. I have every belief in Michael though to do well as Caley ThistleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s number 1. Good luck!
Benjelloun (Hibernian): The Hibernian midfielder made a vital contribution on Thursday night to help the Hibees progress to the 4th round of the Scottish Cup. He came on as a sub and scored 2 goals to secure his team victory. This season, Benjelloun has scored 7 goals: 3 in the SPL, 2 in the League Cup and his latest 2 in the Scottish Cup. Will probably start on Sunday after his performance on Thursday.
