Match Report


Source unknown.

A second-half own goal by Gary Warren earned a vital point for Ross County to prevent the home side Inverness going second in the Scottish Premiership.

Marley Watkins broke the deadlock with a curling effort low past Antonio Reguero to break the deadlock. Ross County levelled when Warren appeared to touch home a Jackson Irvine cross under pressure from substitute Jake Jervis.

Home manager John Hughes appeared to change his set-up to accommodate conditions. He had to solve the conundrum of the loss of his star striker Billy McKay to Wigan.
Watkins was advanced to McKay's normal role and he took to it superbly as demonstrated by the opening goal.

The pitch seemed to contribute to the County players being unable to gather the ball.

Dingwall had an earlier opportunity to put the us in front when he gathered inside the box, he had time from around 12 yards but could not find the angle to beat Esson who blocked well with his legs.

It was a first half of few chances but the home side took confidence from their goal.

Tenacious play by Watkins on the right gave Williams the opportunity to strike from a central position inside the area. His shot was blocked away for a corner when he possibly should have done better.

Warren then used his considerable frame to muscle his way through a packed six-yard box, but his header was blocked a yard or so from goal. Meekings then had an opportunity from another corner, but agonised as his drive was kicked off the line to safety.

However, County demonstrated real character and hauled themselves level. Irvine gathered on the right and surged up the wing with real determination. His cross was searching and perfectly weighted for the on-rushing Jervis but it looked like the unfortunate Warren was last to make contact with the ball.

As County went for the winner, Graham Carey put the striker in on the left hand side but with only Esson to beat he cracked his shot wide. Greg Tansey came close with a curling free-kick which Reguero covered well but there was a big call for referee John Beaton with just a minute to go.

Boyd hesitated as the ball held up in the mud. Watkins nipped in and beat Reguero to the ball. It appeared that Watkins was left with a tap-in but he went down and the referee said no penalty.
