Airdrieonians vs Inverness CT

Saturday 23rd January 2010

Rooney spot on for Inverness

Inverness needed an Adam Rooney penalty to see off basement-boys Airdrie 1-0.

The Diamonds should have taken the lead in the 13th minute when Diarmuid O'Carroll headed over from six yards.

John Baird spurned another excellent chance for United when he volleyed wide from close range.

Six minutes before the interval Rooney met a Ross Tokely cross on the volley and rattled the post.

But he gave his side the lead from the penalty spot two minutes later after Stephen Robertson fouled Danni Sanchez.

Caley continued to look to press home their advantage in the second period but Scott Gemmill missed a golden opportunity to equalise for Airdrie in the 83rd minute when he dragged wide six yards from goal.
