Caley Thistle recorded their first league win of the season in the most dramatic of circumstances following an injury time winning goal against St Johnstone in a dramatic 90 minutes in the Highlands.
Caley Jags manager Richie Foran made three changes to the side mauled 5-1 at Hearts last weekend with David Raven, Jake Mulraney and Scott Boden dropping to the bench alongside new signing Lonsana Doumbouya. Lewis Horner, Alex Fisher and Billy King took their place in the starting 11.
Inverness, who went into this game at the bottom of the league following three straight defeats to start their season, dominated the first half and should have been ahead by half-time.
Ross Draper saw his header from a free kick kept out by Alan Mannus in the Saints goal before the goalkeeper denied Fisher a goal when he tipped his header over the crossbar.
Mannus made another save to deny King as Caley Jags pushed for an opening goal but despite the home side’s efforts Saints made it to the break without conceding.
The visitors were more competitive in the second half but Caley Thistle finally made the breakthrough just before the hour mark when Draper headed a Tansey free kick past Mannus to put his side ahead.
However, Saints drew level with a goal out of nothing 11 minutes from time and it was former Ross County defender Richard Foster who produced it, beating Owain Fon Williams with a stunning 20 yard angled drive after Steven McLean had laid the ball into his path.
It was a kick in the teeth for the home side but they were not to be denied victory and it came in dramatic fashion in the 90th minute when Tansey’s corner sparked bedlam in the Saints penalty area before Josh Meekings scrambled the ball across the line to spark wild celebrations.
