Arbroath v Ayr United KO 12:00 17/04

Inverness Caledonian Thistle 1 – 0 Arbroath




Inverness Caledonian Thistle 1 – 0 Arbroath

It was the home side who grabbed all 3 points in a match where both keepers were really troubled.

Ricky Little was desperately unlucky in first half injury time as Mark Ridgers somehow kept his header out which was heading towards the postage corner, following a corner kick.

Arbroath dominated the early proceedings in the first half but a Todorov diving header following an Inverness free kick found the back of the net as Arbroath failed to pick him up.

Arbroath looked for an equaliser but didn’t really trouble Ridgers, whilst at the other end Derek Gaston made two good saves from long range efforts.

Greenock Morton remain 3 points above Arbroath after suffering defeat to Raith Rovers but Alloa Athletic close the gap to 4 points after a 2-2 draw with Ayr United.
