Inverness Caledonian Thistle vs Arbroath – Match Preview

Scottish Premiership Play Off Semi-Final 1st Leg – Season 2021/2022

Tuesday 10th May 2022, Tulloch Caledonian Stadium, Inverness, 7.05pm kick off.

Arbroath travel to Inverness this afternoon for the 1st leg in the Scottish Premiership Play Off Semi-Final which kicks off at 7.05pm, and is one of the biggest games in the Club’s history.

Inverness defeated Partick Thistle both home and away in the quarter finals, showing great grit to come back after going a goal down at Firhill, before a composed performance and a goal from Austin Samuels sealed the win at home.

Inverness Caledonian Thistle hit form at the right time, and have only suffered one defeat since our last encounter. The form of former loan Lichtie Logan Chalmers has inspired them as he has scored some spectacular goals and made some vital assists with several other big players coming back from injury just at the right time for Inverness.

The Lichties should have a full squad to choose from, however Arbroath Manager Dick Campbell has a nice headache selection as all the players who started against Greenock Morton put on a stunning display and each one of them showed him just how important and skilful they are.

It will be a very tough game, and both sides will be up for the battle.

We know it is a very long way to travel, but if you are traveling please have a safe journey and if you are cheering the team on from home then we appreciate your support!

C’mon the Lichties!
