ICT FC 2-1 Falkirk 30th May 2015

Scottish Cup Final

Caley Jags won the Scottish Cup after going down to ten men and being pulled back level by a very competent Falkirk side. Caley Jags took the lead through Marley Watkins on 38 mins. Watkins got on the ball through an Arron Doran pass. Watkins then rounded Jamie MacDonald the Falkirk keeper to slot into the vacant net. On 74 mins Carl Tremarco earned a red card after pulling down Blair Alston, who was through on goal. Falkirk scored through the head of Peter Grant on 80 mins to bring the sides level. Caley Jags got the winner on 86 mins through James Vincent. Watkins broke through the Falkirk defence only to have his shot parried by MacDonald. The ball fell to Vincent who was left with a simple tap-in.

Manager John Hughes: "... I'm absolutely elated, but we didn't half make it hard for ourselves. I don't want to sound like Sir Alex Ferguson back in his Aberdeen days but the second half just wasn't acceptable. We brought it on top of ourselves and got a man sent off. But once again, the spirit in the team with ten men, they dig it out. And to do it in a Scottish Cup final is remarkable. I'm absolutely delighted we won the game and Tremarco's blushes are spared..."

Celtic 5-0 ICT FC 24th May 2015

Caley Jags rested key players prior to next weeks cup final. Celtic took full advantage and were convincing winners finishing their season by scoring five goals with no reply. Stefan Scepovic scored after just 5 mins. Stefan Johansen followed on 18 mins. Scepovic got his second on 70 mins. Subs Leigh Griffiths and Kris Commons scored on 80 mins and 90 mins respectively.

Manager John Hughes: “... It’s been a horrible week as we’ve had to start preparing for the Cup Final while knowing we still had to come here. But I owed it to those boys to leave them out because if one of them picked up a straight red they would have missed out. That’s why we left so many of them back up the road – six or seven of them didn’t even travel with us. Now our full focus is on the Final this weekend... The seven or eight players who were left out today will go into the game at Hampden with confidence and momentum because they weren’t part of this. They’ll still be flying high. We still wanted to come here and have a go because, as far as I’m concerned, there are still four places up for grabs in my team."

ICT FC 3-0 Dundee United 16th May 2015

Caley Jags widened the gap between third and fourth places during their final home match of the season. Three second half goals with no reply ensured the home side gained all three points. Caley Jags took the lead, on 5 5mins, through a Josh Meekings' header. Nick Ross smashed in the second on 80 mins from 12 yards. This was followed within 3 mins when Gary Warren scored the third, heading in after a Greg Tansey corner.

Manager John Hughes: "When we're at it and we play like we did today we're a real good football side. As a team I can't ask anymore of them... We had a real different pre-season, we never did a double session, and we rested the boys and they came back fit. I've still got boys on the bench who could get themselves in that starting eleven and keep themselves in there. The emergence of Ryan Christie, I think we've got a real talent in Scottish football, he's only going to get better, he's played over thirty games."

Dundee 0-1 ICT FC 9th May 2015

Caley Jags guaranteed European football this summer after clinching third place in the Premiership. Their victory at Dens Park ensured that they could no longer be caught by Dundee United or St Johnstone, the teams immediately below them. It took a single goal to gain the required three points. It came on 8 mins from an Edward Ofere header. Over the 90 mins Dundee had more possession and more shots at goal but Caley jags managed to keep a clean sheet.

Manager John Hughes: "Absolutely outstanding, first time in the history of the club that we are going to Europe so we're looking forward to it. I'm grateful and thankful that we put it to bed today so that lets us concentrate on the cup final. We've got two games to go and we owe it to every other team still to keep battling away and we'll do that as there's cup final places up for grabs, but it is a fantastic achievement for everyone concerned at the club... We are absolutely delighted not just for the supporters but for the whole city and the community of Inverness."

ICT FC 1-2 Dundee United 5th May 2015

Caley Jags fought back, from an early United goal, to claim a vital three points on their route to European football. United went ahead after only 8 mins when a Ryan Essan clearance fell to Robbie Muirhead who easily lobbed it home. However, two further first half goals for the home side were enough to seal the points for Caley Jags. The first came on 38 mins from Edward Ofere who tapped in from a Marley Watkins' cut-back. This was followed just before the break, on 43 mins, through a Danny Williams' volley.

Manager John Hughes: "... To lose a goal like that was really disappointing but all credit to them for coming back to win the game. I am absolutely delighted for them. Of late, we've been losing a late goal. We've got a wee habit of sitting in. The best thing is to keep the ball moving and let the other team do the running. Dundee United hemmed us in for the last fifteen minutes and I'm glad we stood up to it. I felt we got deeper and deeper but we thankfully got away with it."

St Johnstone 1-1 ICT FC 2nd May 2015

It was a draw with one goal and five yellow cards apiece at McDiarmid Park. David Raven picked up two of the yellow cards so Caley Jags found themselves down to ten men on 84 mins. Both goals came in the second half. Caley Jags took the lead on 55 mins when a Raven cross was met by Aaron Doran whose shot went in off the bar. St Johnstone fought back and were rewarded on 82 mins when Brian Graham's header beat Ryan Esson.

Manager John Hughes: "We're playing in the SPL and I expect better performances from the referee than that... He was getting conned, people were falling down. And for me there was probably one yellow card in the whole game. Apart from that it was handbag stuff all over the place. I'm just a little bit disappointed to concede the goal in the last 10 minutes. I thought we might have seen the game out, kept a clean sheet. We made the substitutions to do that."

Aberdeen found themselves level on 69 mins when a Niall McGinn free-kick was deflected past Ryan Esson off the head of David Raven. McGinn clinched the points for Aberdeen on 74 mins after Jonny Hayes' corner wasn't cleared by the Caley Jags' defence.

Manager John Hughes: "... It's been a tough week but you can see today we are where we are on merit. We played some good stuff against a high-flying Aberdeen team and we've always been a match for them, but they can always just pip us to the post."

ICT FC 3-2 Celtic (aet) 19th April 2015

Scottish Cup Semi-Final

Caley Jags denied Celtic the treble for this season after taking them to extra time during their Scottish Cup Semi-Final encounter at Hampden. Virgil van Dijk put Celtic ahead on 18 mins after Gary Warren took down James Forrest just outside the penalty box. Van Dijk took a curling free-kick over the Caley Jags' wall and past Ryan Esson into the back of the net via the inside of the near post. It remained 1-0 going into the break. Caley Jags were level on 58 mins through a Greg Tansey penalty. This came after Marley Watkins was brought down by keeper Craig Gordon, who was rewarded with a red card. Replacement keeper Lukasz Zaluska was unable to stop Tansey's shot. Full time finished at 1-1. Edward Ofere put Caley Jags ahead on 96 mins. Celtic substitute John Guidetti brought the sides back level on 103 mins. The match winner came for Caley Jags on 117 mins through David Raven.

Manager John Hughes: "... That's for Dean Brill, a guy who's been absolutely outstanding for us. I'm absolutely delighted. Well done to the boys and supporters. I didn't know that was our first Scottish Cup final and it's a good story, isn't it? It's a dream. We've lost our goalkeeper, our top striker at Christmas, Billy Mckay. We had to sell him as it was good business for the club. We lost our inspirational skipper right at the start of the season. but the boys just keep digging in and they deserve to be in a cup final..."

ICT FC 1-1 Celtic 11th April 2015

The Scottish Premiership leaders, Celtic, could only pick up a single point during their latest visit to the
Tulloch Caledonian Stadium. Leigh Griffith put the visitors ahead after only 3 mins. Caley Jags responded immediately and equalised on 4 mins through Edward Ofere's close range shot. There were no more goals in the match. On 19 mins Ryan Esson replaced Dean Brill who was stretchered off due to a dislocated knee.

Manager John Hughes: "...We matched Celtic in the first half. In the second half, we sat too deep. It was all Celtic and we got a little bit lucky. We had one or two efforts at goal. In terms of effort and commitment, I cannot fault them. I'm trying to guide them and educate them. When you're under the cosh, if you keep giving the ball away against a good side like Celtic then, inevitably, the door's going to open. We need to be better on the ball..."

Aberdeen 1-0 ICT FC 8th April 2015

A win by Aberdeen saw them extend their lead over Caley Jags to 11 points. Half time was reached without either side scoring. Early in the second half Aberdeen went into the lead. A Barry Robson corner, on 47 mins, was turned in at the back post by the head of Ash Taylor.

Manager John Hughes: "I was disappointed in the way that we conceded. In the last three or four games, we seem to switch off. I don't know what happens at half-time... We need to pass the ball quick, we need to pass it better, we need to go and express ourselves a little bit more and our decision-making in the final third, we have to have a little bit of belief that we can make it happen instead of hoping that it happens."

ICT FC 1-1 Dundee 4th April 2015

Caley Jags only managed to collect one point after pulling back level with Dundee. Despite a number of chances falling to Caley Jags in the first half neither side could pull ahead before going into the break. It was Dundee that took the lead, going against the run of play, on 53 mins from a David Clarkson strike from 15 yards. Graeme Shinnie pulled the sides back level again after only 2 mins. Neither side went on to find the net again.

Manager John Hughes: ""... Lady luck deserted us a little bit. We were looking for a bit more in our combination play with Aaron, Nick, Ryan and Marley, to make the most of our total domination in the first half. I thought the whole game was played in their half. But in the first 20-25 minutes of the second half they were on top. Their shape was better and we struggled to adjust. They scored with their first shot on target but we showed great spirit and character to go straight down the other end and score."

Partick Thistle 1-0 ICT FC 21st March 2015

Caley Jags failed to take the opportunity, during their visit to Firhill, to close the gap on Aberdeen and pull away from Dundee United. A late goal from Steven Lawless was enough to ensure the home home claimed all the points. On 84 mins a high cross was met in the box by Lyle Taylor who knocked it back to Lawless who then beat Ryan Esson, blasting in from 18 yards.

Manager John Hughes: "... We never got on it, never passed it, played it too straight, and that put us on the back foot. We kept giving the ball away, and all credit to Partick, that gave them the incentive to get on the front foot and they got their goal. I'm a little bit disappointed in the goal, we should have been round about the second ball so to see it nestle in the bottom corner was a little bit disappointing. I thought we were not too bad first half, but, second half, miles off it."

Caley Jags progressed to the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup after a home win against Raith Rovers. Despite numerous opportunities in the first half Caley Jags failed to score. The situation changed after 63 mins when the only goal of the match came. A Greg Tansey corner was met by Danny Devine at the back post, where he headed in the winner.

Manager John Hughes: "... In the first half we were very good and a little bit unlucky to come in having not scored a few goals. It's all about winning the game, we knew what the prize was - a semi-final at Hampden. In the second half we weren't quite at it but we certainly did enough to win the game. We're grateful that the goal came because this club deserves to be in a semi-final. It's great for the highlands, great for the club, and I'm delighted for the board and the chairman because they've backed us and I know the financial rewards for getting to a semi-final."

Motherwell 2-1 ICT FC 28th February 2015

Caley Jags were unable to extend this year's unbeaten run for another week. Motherwell started the more determined side. Their early efforts were rewarded on 48 mins when they were put ahead through Louis Laing finishing from a Conor Grant cross. New Caley Jaggie Edward Ofere levelled the sides on 76 mins when he headed in from a Graeme Shinnie cross. Both sides fought to gain a winning goal. It came on 84 mins when Motherwell's Lionel Ainsworth's shot deflected off Ross Draper to beat Ryan Esson. Caley Jags still sit third in the table.

Manager John Hughes: "After hitting the woodwork twice, putting a couple past the post, we certainly deserved to take something out of the match. I don't know if it's all three points but we could have took three points. We show character to come back having lost a goal. I felt we could have gone on to win the match but it wasn't to be. It's the first time we've been beaten (this year), on a heavy pitch, by a team that's fighting for their life..."

Caley Jags held on to their lead until 74 mins when Ryan McGowan levelled. Gary Warren was dismissed in added time after a clash with Nadir Ciftci.

Manager John Hughes: "... Dundee United were up for it. They've come off two defeats and they were up for it, they were getting stuck in, they were very aggressive and I don't think we got enough protection from the referee... We got the penalty and played some nice stuff in the first half and once again forgot to play in the second half. When I look at my team, we needed to get our foot on the ball and make a couple of passes and take it a run, but we failed to do that."

Manager John Hughes: "We need to be a bit more ruthless and manage the game better, just to keep that back door shut. We were defensively poor from the front. But we'll take that dunt on the chin and hopefully come back from it on Tuesday night..."

Caley Jags progressed to the Scottish Cup quarter-finals after a win at Firhill. A fairly comfortable first half saw them score twice. The Partick Jags had a stronger showing in the second half but only managed a single goal. Marley Watkins put the visitors ahead after 16 mins when he outpaced the home defence to slot past Paul Gallacher. Greg Tansey got a second for Caley Jags on 27 mins, again making short work of the home defence. Lyle Taylor came on as a substitute at the start of the second half. This tactical move was rewarded on 67 mins when his shot from the edge of the box beat Ryan Esson.

Manager John Hughes: "...On our first half performance it would have been an injustice had we not won the football match. Some of the stuff we played in the first half, it was real good stuff. Dominated the game and should have been two or three goals up. That's my only disappointment, no-one in the second half was brave enough to get on the ball, two or three passes, and take the sting out of the game. All credit to Partick Thistle they gave it a real good go and we just held on..."

The second came on 76 mins when Nick Ross knocked in a Ross Draper lay-off from the edge of the box. In the end a comfortable win. Unfortunately, this was soured somewhat when Dean Brill was stretchered off with a leg injury on 94 mins.

Manager John Hughes: "I didn't enjoy the game. There was a real apprehension before the game. We were getting a bit complacent and it showed in the first half. Second half we got back to what we're all about. Even if it wasn't a great performance it showed me the spirit and that's what got us the win... But, credit to them in terms of still keeping that clean sheet... It's all about getting results and if you're getting results your job is made easy."

Caley Jags and Killie had to contend with a Rugby Park subjected to sleet, rain, and high winds. Both teams had first half chances but neither keeper was beaten. Early in the second half David Raven received his second booking of the match and Caley Jags were down to ten men. Having taken down Josh Magennis in the box Killie were awarded a penalty. This was converted by Alexei Eremenko on 47 mins. Billy McKay then went on to score twice to win the match for Caley Jags. On 53 mins McKay nimbly wove his way through the defence to line up his shot which flew beyond Craig Samson. He then put Caley Jags into the lead on 81 mins with the aid of Nick Ross.

Manager John Hughes: "When you've got Billy McKay on the park, you've always got the chance of scoring goals and he came up with two wonderful strikes... It took us going down to 10 men and losing a goal to give us that intensity in our game. But, throughout the match I thought we dominated the game, but we lacked that killer instinct in the final third during the first half. The whole game changed on the sending off. They got their goal and it gave us the impetus to get on the front foot."

My only disappointment was losing the goal so quickly after scoring our second one, but it was a really good team performance... The link-up play was great and that was really pleasing.

Manager John Hughes: "It was a good team performance, we were clinical and I'm absolutely delighted. I have to admit I was a bit apprehensive about the game tonight but all credit to the boys, we went about our business in a real good manner. They are a wonderful bunch to work with. I get everything out of them. I see boys that are enjoying their football, they're playing with an education, we're passing it really well and we're confident."

ICT FC 3-1 Motherwell 22nd November 2014

Caley Jags held on to second in the Premiership after hosting a determined Motherwell side. Billy McKay put his side in front after 29 mins. However, the celebrations were short lived with Henrik Ojamaa responding for the Steelmen within 2 mins. The sides went into the second half level. Caley Jags retook the lead on 71 mins through a Marley Watkins' header. Josh Meekings stretched the lead on 78 mins when a Greg Tansey corner was met at the back post by Meekings who tapped it home.

Manager John Hughes: "I felt we dominated the football and were always on the front foot, but we need to pass it with a better purpose and belief, everybody take part in the game, and that was the case in the second half. It just shows you the strength we've got on the bench because I felt the introduction of Aaron Doran and Nick Ross certainly swung it in our favour..."

ICT FC 4-2 Hamilton Academical 8th November 2014

Caley Jags moved to the top of the table after beating Hamilton for the second time this season. However, it was Accies who scored first, from a Tony Andreu free-kick on 17 mins. Billy McKay brought the sides back level on 25 mins. A Gary Warren header on 59 mins put Caley Jags into the lead. McKay got his second, of the match, with a tap-in on 68 mins. Andreu cut back the Caley Jags lead on 72 mins. James Vincent's finish on 78 mins ensured a decisive win for the home side.

Manager John Hughes: "... Hopefully that's the monkey off his back and he can get going, get back to scoring goals. Billy McKay's a natural goalscorer. He's had a wee barren spell and been taking a bit of flak in the dressing room. He's a big character in the dressing room - small in stature but the boys look up to him for that inspiration... Today, we've really merited the victory. Hamilton can take great pride in what they're doing. On another day, it might've been their day but we were worthy of the victory."

Celtic 1-0 ICT FC 1st November 2014

Caley Jags managed to keep Celtic at bay until early in the second half. Then on 49 mins John Guidetti broke the deadlock. He was fed the ball by Anthony Stokes and went on to beat Dean Brill after sending him the wrong way. Despite a strong finish from Caley Jags, with chances falling to Carl Tremarco and Billy McKay, Celtic held on to claim the three points.

Manager John Hughes: "I'm disappointed in the goal, I felt there was a free-kick on Danny Williams and so did the boys... The game-plan was to keep it tight, keep the shape of the team and grow into the game. We certainly did that, although we rode out luck a little bit. In the last 20 minutes or so we had Celtic on the back foot a little bit. We gave as good as we got. The last time we came here Celtic took us for five so it shows the massive improvement that's gone on at Inverness."

ICT FC 1-0 Dundee United 25th October 2014

Caley Jags finished the day back up into second place in the Premiership table having taken three points from Dundee United. The only goal of the match came on 11 mins. A low cross from David Raven was met by Marley Watkins who shot into the bottom right-hand corner of the net. Although they dominated the game Caley Jags were unable to add to the scoreline.

Manager John Hughes: "All credit to Dundee United, they're always dangerous, they hang in there, but I felt overall we deserved the game. But I'm a bit disappointed we didn't score another goal. I felt our ball retention, our shape and our turnover of the football was more determined. When we get the ball back quick we can be more decisive. When we get into that final third, we've got to be more clinical, but in terms of commitment and shape, I can't ask for any more..."

St Mirren 0-1 ICT FC 18th October 2014

Caley Jags found themselves down to ten men after 50 mins when Ryan Christie picked up a second yellow card. They hang on to the end, however, to ensure a clean sheet. A Greg Tansey goal from a penalty on 43 mins ensured all three points went north.

Manager John Hughes: "... We'll take the three points and keep the clean sheet. But I thought it was a terrible game, I didn't enjoy it. It had too many bookings, too many stoppages and it never got going. It's unfortunate because I'm a manager and I like to see good football. I can imagine what the spectators are saying. We took all the credit because we were reduced to ten men. Wwe were very professional and we kept our shape, and we kept the back door shut. But it's about football, and we're here to entertain the punters."

ICT FC 1-1 Ross County 5th October 2014

Caley Jags had to settle for draw after the season's first Highland derby. County went ahead on 21 mins when Yoann Arquin headed in from six yards. Marley Watkins responded for the home side on 49 mins. A Ryan Christie cross was deflected off Scott Boyd's head to land just right for Watkins to net from 10 yards.

Manager John Hughes: "... I am a little disappointed we didn't pick up the three points, but to get 17 points two games before the first quarter, all credit to the boys... That Lady Luck has just evaded us. Is it luck or that final bit of quality and that final decision making, that cut-back, that final pass, that cross that's letting us down? If I'm totally honest, they had one or two chances in the first half and Dean Brill had one or two saves, but we had enough chances in that second half to win two games never mind one."

Shay Logan got a second for the Dons 5 mins before the break. Caley Jags drew level on 50 mins through Marley Watkins. Aberdeen went on to pick up the points though, after Jonny Hayes scored the winner on 59 mins.

Manager John Hughes: "... We have an open, expansive style of football and I ask the boys to get on the ball and play football and I've no doubt we are going to make mistakes. I take full responsibility because I want my boys to be brave. I am just proud at the way they took the game to Aberdeen and for long periods of the game played real good football... We could be a little bit more clinical and defend a bit better, but let's give Aberdeen respect - they are a good side. But we love being underdogs and coming to places like Pittodrie and giving it a right good go."

Caley Jags got back to winning ways after playing host to St Johnstone. On 61 mins Aaron Doran broke down the left and squared the ball for Marley Watkins. Watkins then side-footed past keeper Alan Mannus to put Caley Jags ahead. The lead was doubled just 5 mins later by Ryan Christie, St Johnstone pulled one back through Brian Graham on 78 mins but were unable to find a second.

Manager John Hughes: "... It came for us in the second half and Marley Watkins came up with a sublime finish. Usain Bolt would struggle to keep up, he's that quick! Then young Christie showed his quality again and we were delighted when he came up trumps with the second goal. We always find it tough against St Johnstone. There's not much between the teams. My only disappointment is conceding a goal. At 2-0, with our style, we should have been playing keep-ball."

Manager John Hughes: "I'm disappointed to lose the match but not in terms of the way we played... I thought we played some lovely stuff... The final pass was the thing that was letting us down tonight... I look at my team and I think my boys dominated the football for long periods. A wee bit of belief in the final third was all that was missing."

Partick Thistle 3-1 ICT FC 13th September 2014

Caley Jags ended their unbeaten run, going down three goals to one to the other Jags. The game started well enough, for the visitors, with Arron Doran getting the first goal on 13 mins.

Abdul Osman scored on 23 mins after he headed in from a Kallum Higginbotham corner. Higginbotham went on the get Partick's third from a 25 yard strike on 72 mins. Partick had a chance at a fourth in added time when awarded a penalty. However, Brill saved James Craigen's effort.

Manager John Hughes: "... In the first half, we took the lead and I thought there was chances there to go and score more goals... Second half, the whole style of the game changes, Partick could sit in and hit us on the counter attack and, all credit to them, they did that. They scored a wonderful third goal. Even I applauded that... You'll never get me having a go at these boys as they have been absolutely brilliant since I came in. We need to put that behind us and let's go and try to improve."

ICT FC 2-0 Kilmarnock 30th August 2014

Caley Jags maintain their position at the top of the table for another week after a home win against Kilmarnock. A quiet first half was followed by a second that saw two Caley Jags goals and another clean sheet for the club. It was Aaron Doran who put the side ahead on 75 mins with his second of the season. This was followed just 5 mins later when Greg Tansey's 25 yarder struck the post and then rebounded into the net off the back of keeper Craig Sampson.

Manager John Hughes: "We have to be patient, and I said that to the players at half time. I felt some of our play wasn't too bad. We just lacked that final cutting edge in the final third... I just asked the players for a little bit of the stuff we work at on the training pitch, that final link-up or even a better quality cross. But it was our day, and I'm just grateful and thankful that we picked up the three points, because Kilmarnock were resolute..."

The ball then went on to ricochet off Eoghan O'Connell, into his own net, for the only goal of the match. Caley Jags remain the only team in the league not to have conceded a goal this season.

Manager John Hughes: "We rode our luck a couple of times in the first half but we created a few chances ourselves. Then we got our goal, maybe too early. I like a goal in the 85th minute against Celtic. But we coped well, changed our shape, played on the break and could have nicked another one. We want to win as many games as we can as quickly as we can to make sure we stay in the Premiership, then we'll set about reassessing out targets."

But we got our wee break just before half-time and that settled us down... There is still a lot to do. For instance, I thought our crossing was very poor."

What we tried to do was come out and impose ourselves on the game... and we got the result that we came here for."
