A GAME TO REMEMBER
For this weeks game to remember we take you back another one of InvernessÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s great cup killing shocks. On the 26th January 2001 in the Scottish Cup 4th round, Inverness CT were drawn away to Hearts. Nobody predicted a shock, but Inverness werenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t listening. A tremendous display from the inform 1st Division side gave the Highlanders another giant cup killing act to add to their collection. Ross TokelyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s opener was cancelled out just before the break by Gary Wales of Hearts. A few thought that was the chance of a shock gone but Inverness showed the world how to play football in the second half when Dennis Wyness and David Bagan both slotted perfect goals to gift Inverness CT passage to the Quarter-final. Man of the match was Hearts fan Ross Tokely. The attendance was 12016.
The teams were as follows:
INVERNESS CT: Walker, Tokely, Mann, McCaffrey, McBain, Munro, Duncan, Chrisite, Robson, Ritchie, Wyness.
Subs- Bagan (for Christie), Calder, Bavidge, Golabek, Stewart.
HEARTS: Niemi, Webster, Severin, Mahe, Maybury, Flogel, Gronlund, Fulton, McCann, Fuller, Wales.
Subs- Kirk (for Webster), Simmons (for McCann), Adam (for Wales), McKenzie, Kazcan.
The referee was Alan Freeland and there were two bookings on the day: Duncan and Robson both of Inverness CT. Six of the Inverness players who started the match still play for the club and one is now the manager!

PLAYERS TO WATCH
Russell Duncan (Inverness CT): The sometimes forgotten Inverness midfielder has started to find his form this season in recent games. He has been used to sitting on the bench this season although due to Ian BlackÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s disciplinary record, he has his starting place back and isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t going to give it up lightly. Russell scored his first goal of the season in the cup last week against Dundee Utd and it was an absolute cracker. It is good to see him back in the team and performing well.
Barry Wilson (Inverness CT): I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t miss this guy out. All going to plan, Barry will make his 300th appearance for the club, becoming only the 3rd player to do so (after Charlie Christie and Ross Tokely). This is a great achievement for a man who has started to find some form recently, giving him the man of the match award against Celtic two weeks ago. Well done Barry on this incredible milestone and gaining a new contract. Christie may make him captain for the day to mark the occasion.
Andrius Velicka (Hearts): The Lithuanian forward has so far contributed 10 goals this season, the top scorer at the Edinburgh side. The last time Velicka scored was in the Scottish Cup 3rd round against Stranraer where he scored a hat-trick. However, his last league goal was on the 9th December against Motherwell. Has 4 yellow cards so far this season and has played a part in 22 games.
