INVERNESS CT- FALKIRK
I am not a great fan of ICT boss Terry Butcher, his short comings whilst at Brentford were all too apparent and his negative approach is not fun to watch. His team will survive another season in the SPL with a point, basement club Falkirk will save themselves and send Butcher's boys down in their place, with all three.
Falkirk have saved their best performances for the Cup this season and have a final against Rangers to look forward to, but this game is far more important. They have lost just once in six starts and at least know what they have to do, only a win will save them , ICT have the problem of whether to play for a draw or seek the cushion of a lead. Knowing Butcher, he will not be overly adventurous and I have to take the visitors getting the handicap start. They will be buoyed by a fine record here, winning 9 of 17 visits in the last decade, which included a cup win in early March. They also administered a 4-0 thumping in the reverse league fixture later that same month and travel with some confidence. They have proven themselves as a cup team and that is exactly what this has become. Some 1,000 + fans are expected to make the long trip north and the club have spent some of their cup windfall in providing free coach travel.
6 points Falkirk +1/4 ball 2.04 asian line.
