Match Preview

Davis to return for Inverness David Davis returns from suspension for Inverness's Clydesdale Bank Premier League game against Aberdeen at the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium. Midfielder Davis, on loan from Wolves, missed last week's game against Rangers at Ibrox following his red card against Dundee United but is expected to come straight back into Terry Butcher's side. Inverness defender Roman Golobart will distract himself from a lonely Christmas by concentrating on winning three points against the Dons. The 19-year-old Spaniard is on loan from Wigan and will be away from his family over the festive season. However, Golobart claims he will be able to focus on the Clydesdale Bank Premier League game against the Dons. "It is a difficult time," he said. "All my family are in Spain and I am here on my own. "I don't have anything else to think about apart from a massive game, the most important game of 2011. "It will not be a present (if Caley win) because if you work hard it is something that you deserve. But let's hope we get the three points." Golobart was impressive against Rangers at Ibrox last week, as were the rest of his team-mates, but the 2-1 defeat left them one point off the bottom although the two sides below them, Hibernian and Dunfermline, both have a game in hand over Terry Butcher's side. Aberdeen beat the Highlanders 2-1 at Pittodrie in August and are five points better off, but Golobart insists Caley have nothing to fear. "When we played against them they had a lot of luck," he said. "I don't think they are better than us. "With a good performance by us there is no question (we can win). "We have to work hard and do the things that we have been doing and I'm sure the luck will come." Aberdeen manager Craig Brown believes his side cannot afford to be complacent after a recent run of form. "To become complacent would be a recipie for disaster," he told the club's official website. "We have to go up to Inverness and treat the game as if our lives depended on it. "I have great respect for Terry Butcher and for Inverness. They are a good side. "It will be a competitive fixture and we will have to be at our best. "Our players will be in no doubt as to the demands that will be on them for this game."

Match Report

Golobart hands Inverness rare home success Roman Golobart's first career goal helped Inverness notch their first home victory for almost three months with a 2-1 win against Aberdeen. The Spanish defender's close-range header after 64 minutes was followed by Gregory Tade's 15-yard shot through a crowded area five minutes later to double the lead. Substitute Rory Fallon's 76th-minute goal put the visitors back in it, but they failed to find an equaliser. The win reduced the gap between the clubs to just two points and took the Highlanders further from the foot of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League. Caley Thistle's top scorer Andrew Shinnie and defender Ross Tokely were both sidelined by injuries following last week's 2-1 loss at Rangers. Defender Thomas Piermayr returned from a back injury while David Davis was also in for the hosts after serving a suspension. The Dons made four changes to the side which beat Hibernian 1-0 last time out. Youl Mawene, Andrew Considine, Chris Clark and Josh Magennis came in, while Rory McArdle, Rory Fallon and Fraser Fyvie dropped to the bench and Mohamed Chalali missed out. There was little festive goodwill in the opening moments when Golobart picked up a yellow card for a challenge on Scott Vernon. Richie Foran showed the home side's attacking intent with a diving header just wide from inside the box after a Jonny Hayes' free-kick. Kari Arnason then powered a header wide from Robert Milson's corner before Vernon headed wide after connecting with an Arnason throw-in. Jason Brown was equal to a low shot from outside the area by Hayes before, at the other end, Inverness goalkeeper Ryan Esson was forced into the first save of the game when he parried a Magennis shot wide. Graeme Shinnie tried his luck from 40 yards with the wind behind him but his effort floated over the bar. Magennis made Esson work again with a close-range shot which hit the goalkeeper and spun out for a corner. Milson's cross-cum-shot was the best of the opening stages of the second period, but it was just off target. Davis, who showed glimpses of the quality he possesses as a loanee from Premier League side Wolves, powered in a low, angled effort which Brown turned away for a corner. Hayes took the resulting set piece to find on-loan Wigan teenager Golobart, who sent home a powerful header to open the scoring on 64 minutes. Billy McKay shot over as Inverness continued in the ascendancy and their pressure paid dividends when Gregory Tade's low shot found the net through a crowded penalty area in 69 minutes from 15 yards, following a Hayes corner. Hayes was next to test Brown with a low shot from 30 yards before Fallon pulled one back for Aberdeen on 76 minutes. Six minutes after coming on as a substitute, Fallon's low shot from six yards beat Esson after he was picked out by Milson. Milson himself sent a good chance over as Aberdeen looked for an equaliser, while substitute Greg Tansey almost extended his side's lead in stoppage time as Inverness held on for their first home win since October 1.
