It was brilliant to host 4,300 fans at a thrilling Highland Derby at the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium on Saturday, with the game finishing 2-2.

Jamie Lindsay had County ahead after 17 minutes with a strike from around 25 yards but ICT hit back straight away as George Oakley scored on his return from injury. Shaun Rooney then had the Caley Jags ahead just before the half-hour mark with super finish after he was set up by some brilliant play from Liam Polworth. County hit back as Billy Mckay beat the offside trap and his cross was turned in by Brad Mckay. Despite chances for both sides in the second-half, the game finished 2-2.
