CELTIC have answered Aberdeen’s title challenge with three points – but the Dons can draw level again tonight.
Derek McInnes’s men face a tough test at Inverness but it’s one they can pass. Aberdeen haven’t beaten the Highlanders this season with a defeat away and draw at home and they’ll be determined to put the record straight.
Both sides are in decent form – ICT have lost one in 10 and the Dons are unbeaten in 12.
Inverness are as big as 7-2 at betfair while the draw will have backers at 5-2 with the likes of McBookie.
Rather than support the Dons I’d rather put my money on both to score at 11-10 with Coral. That’s come up in the meetings this season and McInnes’s side conceded three at St Johnstone last time out.
Inverness have netted 10 in their last seven home meetings with the Pittodrie side but will miss Richie Foran who is out for the season.
Adam Rooney claimed a Pittodrie point with a last-gasp penalty against his former side and has netted in 11 of his last 15 outings.
New boy Simon Church made an immediate impact with a debut goal against Celtic and the Wales international is 23-10 at betfair to score again.
For Inverness the best chance of a goal could come from Miles Storey who is 14-5 with Ladbrokes to net.
I’ve just noticed Willie Collum is the ref tonight so that means a chance of a red card or penalty awarded. Collum’s card stats aren’t above average – 48 yellow and two red in 16 matches but both reds came in live TV games such as this one and he has given controversial penalties in front of the cameras.
Both teams to score
Rooney to score
(7-5, William Hill)
