Dreadful time for dire display
I’ve always tried to be positive about Caley Thistle but Saturday’s performance against Dundee United was the worst I’ve seen from an Inverness team in two years.
I can’t think of a single player who deserves pass marks. It was dire and what will hurt John Robertson more is the knowledge it was an opportunity missed.
Robbo must have been scratching his head at how poor his side was after an excellent performance and away win at Queen of the South in midweek.
It was only one game but it was a classic six-pointer. Victory for Inverness would have taken them to within a point of the top of the table. But the 3-0 loss to United means they are now seven points adrift.
It’s not an insurmountable tally to claw back but it is going to be a hard slog over the winter to try to stay in touch.
United have steadied the ship after a few poor results, while Dundee look to have found form again and Ayr United continue to defy expectations by keeping themselves up there among the contenders.
That leaves Inverness knowing they have to put together a run of good results to stay with the pack.
With the Dundee derby looming on Friday, Inverness have to take advantage by beating Arbroath at Gayfield on Saturday.
