Richie Foran equaliser earns Inverness Caley draw against St Mirren
As recently as 1994, the festive football highlight for the denizens of Inverness was a Highland League derby between the town’s two main teams. The intervening years have seen Inverness afforded city status, and an even more notable football rise. The acrimony which surrounded the merger of Inverness Thistle and Caledonian has not been forgotten, but Terry Butcher has done an impressive job at writing fresh chapters in a recent history.

St Mirren had stated their intentions after only 80 seconds. Dougie Imrie, once of this parish, collected a Paul McGowan pass before lashing a low shot past the flailing arms of Antonio Reguero. Graham Carey came within the crossbar of doubling that advantage from a wonderful free-kick.
Inverness produced an equaliser of even better quality. Andrew Shinnie looked like being blocked out by the St Mirren defence but instead cut infield and lashed the ball home from 25 yards.
St Mirren should have been back in front before the interval, Steven Thompson instead wasting a fine chance. The Paisley team did edge in front again after 55 minutes.
