'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Inverness CT 1 - Dundee United 2

Caledonian Stadium

Sat 11th May 3pm

Attendance: 3,728

Late shows brings timely reward

Gary Mackay-Steven scored an injury-time winner to end a run of three straight defeats for Dundee United at Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

Goalkeeper Radoslaw Cierzniak had earlier kept out a 35th minute Billy McKay penalty but was then beaten by Aaron Doran just before the break.

However, Ryan Dow equalised with his first-ever United league goal early in the second-half and Mackay-Steven went on to snatch a late victory.

Caley's defeat came as a blow to their own Europa League hopes, although Andrew Shinnie soon had a drive deflected behind.

Their Spanish keeper Antonio Reguero was required to block from Stuart Armstrong, but the hosts continued to threaten with Brian McLean covering well while Cierzniak twice denied McKay - the second time from the penalty spot following John Rankin's challenge on Doran.

But Doran then turned and finished well from the edge of the box ahead of the break, until Jon Daly helped Dow to equalise with a low shot early in the second-half.

Recalled top scorer Johnny Russell could have soon added to that before then testing the keeper from distance as Reguero snatched his 30-yard lob underneath the crossbar.

Skipper Daly next headed wide for the visitors and they were rewarded as Armstrong's low cross was despatched by Mackay-Steven for the winner in added time.
