Hoping for a victory today, but I’m being a pessimist with my prediction.

Think the ICT run is going well so predicting a 1-2, no doubt Wotherspoon getting one of them.

The defence really gives me the fear without Bene so I’m not too sure. Hopefully we’ll have our shooting boots on as it would be a surprise if we get a clean sheet.

Decent attack minded line up , with experience on the bench
At home we should be going for it so happy enough to see an attack minded line up , We need to get back to making KDM a fortress and taking the game to whoever we are playing !
we just need that wee bit of quality from our midfield etc to give some decent service to our players up front instead of living off scraps
I am Not brave enough to predict the score today though , But I am looking to get the 3 points ( same as every week ) but it depends on what team turns up for us , will take any kind of win though

We`ve had the best chances by far, but weve also given them too much space to work their way up the pitch unchallenged.

Poor defending for the goal, but jeezo, how unlucky are we. On another day, we would have had 3 goals. Possibly some were bad misses, mind you. ICT look to be a nasty shower playing in the image of their manager. Hopefully will be pleasantly surprised by a second half comeback. We`re not a team that should be losing 5 out of 6.

Inverness look like they`re the ones who have had a rocket from their manager rather than us. We`d not really had a kick until the nice wee move down our left that ended with the ball flashing across the six yard line.

We’ve been unable to score a goal since the season began, and we’re now starting to look highly likely to concede at least one a game. A relegation battle isn’t a far-fetched opinion.

We weren’t exactly scoring freely last season and the step up has made thst all the more difficult.Some were shouting for us to sign a 15 goal a season striker but nothing. Unless we sign a finisher in January then its a dog fight at the bottom.

But if we win our next game then we will be playoff bound right? Also how many 15 goal a season strikers are available at this level? Clearly ever other team bar us has one apparently

In the end I am happy we got a point
Because we should have been out of sight in the first half
Hitting the woodwork doesn`t win games
Edwards had a good game but I lost count of how many times he ran the ball out of the park , or just cannot put a decent ball in
On that performance it was really a game of two halves
Another game at home though where we have dropped points and every point is a prisoner in this league !
Looking ahead to the game this Friday its a local derby game and sometimes hard to predict , but If I am honest the way we are playing just now and not really getting the rub of the green and Rovers seem to be getting the rub of the green against us , I can only see one outcome !
I always live in hope though
One thing that would help is if we take our chances , you do not get anything for hitting the woodwork

I think if he got specialist 1 on 1 and goalscoring sessions he would be absolutely deadly, if he sorts out shooting we have easily the best striker in the league imo

We did it in the end. It took us a while but we kept going and got our just rewards. Why anyone wouldn’t be happy with that is mind boggling.

I didn’t say hitting the woodwork is something we should be happy with but we got to those attempts by getting into the right areas. Isn’t that a good thing? They were chances we had.

Inverness have always been a big strong team and that was evident today too. Big Dunc has got them fired up.

I saw tempers flaring in the first half after their goal but we got the point. Happy with the way Wighton, O’Halloran and Jakubiak played when they came on. McCann was my man of the match.

Well I was right (just) that we`re not a team that loses 5 out of 6! As well as we played in the first half, it looked like men against boys for 30 minutes of the second half. ICT definitely upped their game. If I supported them, I`d be disappointed not to go away with the 3 points. That said, well done to the team for keeping on going. The equaliser was a bit of a shock, though we did threaten more in the last quarter and it was well-deserved in the end. Actually a great finish from Lewis McCann.

The team`s confidence is a little fragile and getting the first goal would obviously help. Hopefully next Friday.

Genuine question: how are shots "On Target" defined? Are the goalposts and the crossbar technically "Off Target"?

I had always assumed they were included as "On Target", but given we had 6 or 7 such incidents today, I see the BBC has us down with 12 shots and only 2 on target.

I agree with ReturningParsFan
How much I would love to see us to score first !
Changes the whole complexion of the game , teams need to open up a little instead of sitting back in numbers which would certainly help us , I still think we tend to be a wee bit slow at getting the ball up the park to hurt teams too
Here`s hoping we can Score first on Friday night and go on to win the game
Buffy , I am happy to get the point as we deserved to get something out of that game , thank God we got a wee bit rub of the green near the end of the Game albeit in off the post LOL

Frustrated as I am at not winning given the number of hits on the woodwork, I thoroughly enjoyed the game.
Possibly went down the left too many times and didn`t use Ritchie-Hosler enough and on the odd occasion we could have moved the ball a bit quicker.

7 points clear of bottom, all good 👍

I’m going to suggest most of the people on this thread were not at the game, because it sounds like I was at a different game.

Can’t fault the players today. They put in a good shift and were desperately unlucky.

The efforts that hit the woodwork were good efforts, not bad misses. Perhaps KRH might have sone better. ?

Big Dunc was very thankful, post match, for a point

An on target shot is one that would have went in had the goalkeeper (or another player) not stopped it. Clearly a shot off the woodwork wouldn`t count as on target, unless the shot was pushed onto the frame by a save, deflection or clearance (like Moffat`s effort)

First one - great turn and hit, really unlucky and the keeper clearly wasn`t expecting the shot to be hit so quickly.
Second one - think Ritchie-Hosler should be doing better but couldn`t quite connect.
Third one - a touch unlucky but the angle was always against him; could he have squared it to Moffat?
Fourth one - probably hit it too well! If he hit it into the ground it might have trundled in but instead it was heading for the top corner before a tremendous intervention by the defender to head it onto the bar.
Fifth one - couldn`t believe folk were urging Otoo to shoot from so far out as it`s not as if he`s a regular scorer, but what a true strike of a football.

Overall a few good performances, good to get Todd back in (and Ritchie-Hosler although he wasn`t as prominent) and more "never give up" stuff to be proud of. Quite a few issues though, with a very soft goal given up, Chamlers and Allan being totally overrun in the middle of the park, some poor delivery from wide areas when we had some openings and a few times when we tried to be too clever in our own box (fine when you get away with it and beat the press but today in those conditions it was very high risk and even when we got out our danger area we allowed Inverness to filter back anyway)..

The target is the net really so the woodwork is off target.

The game itself was one of the stranger ones, really enjoyed our build up play first half, was very patient at times, controlling the ball and how we didn’t score from some of our chances I struggle to comprehend.

The ICT goal, you just knew the way the game was going it was going to happen, right kick in the gut.

Second half ICT were much better and controlled most of the half, and slowed the tempo nicely, we struggled to create as many clear cut opportunities but deserved the goal in the end.

Think we have a right to be disappointed not to get the W but the way the game went I’m just glad we took something out of it.

Never seen anything like it, hitting the post so much. On another day would be 4/5-1. Strikers need to get in the box, 2/3 times the ball was fizzed across the 6 yard box and striker was at edge of the box.
Jakubiak caused problems for them when he came on with his presence n pace. Shouldn’t start the next game, although he doesn’t look like he will score. Also should’ve had a pen when he was pulled back.

One thing that does my head in is that we will flood the box at corners but fail to leave someone out wide to collect the overhits. Game after game, we see this occurring, and opportunities go amiss. It is so frustrating.

Contented with a point. We had lot of chances and could have been out off sight after the FH instead of being 0-1 down. SH we struggled till the subs. Great strike for the equaliser.

KRH - Good in the FH but isolated when pushed up in the SH. Thought Fisher was always looking to play it inside or cross field.

O`Halloran - Has got pace, play it over the top for him to run onto.

Need to be more clinical & take our chances.

Another point towards 8th, cant say much as missed game today, but if you hit the woodwork 7 times without scoring Id say its more unfortunate not to get more goals than “poor finishing” whats the odds of scoring 1 in every 8 efforts that hit the woodwork?

I thought a draw was at least what we deserved today. If we went in 3 nil at half time it would be hard to complain with. We hit the post 6 times but the positive is that we are creating chances.

Our midfield for me was too slow at reacting to sloppy passes which led to ICT picking up a majority of the second balls.

Bollocks. KRH was playing a deep wingback position and did very well even though that`s not his position. The formation changed when the subs came on and O`Halloran had much more freedom to push on.

It doesn`t seem to matter how we play against ICT, we almost never beat them. I can think of one game when we beat them 5 - 1 at EEP, otherwise we find different ways to batter them without winning.

First half we were really unfortunate, maybe KRH should have scored but otherwise the rest were very good efforts. The goal was soft, although Inverness did miss one excellent chance first half and had a few decent ones second half when they played a lot better. Allan and Chalmers again fell out the game second half and there were only a few flashes from Todd, Moffat and KRH - probably to be expected for the two that have been injured for a while.

I`d really like to see one of Hamilton or Otoo in midfield, but that would mean a 4 at the back until Bene or Breen return - which won`t be soon. I still think Fisher and Otoo together have enough pace, with Edwards and Comrie either side to do it.

I`m quite happy with a point from that. We were fine in the first half but just didn`t get a break at all. I don`t think we were miles ahead of them though, as they missed the best chance of the half from a ball across goal at the back post and most of the play was pretty even. We were unlucky to be a goal down after all those shots off the post, though it was a pretty poor one to lose with two of them waiting on the ball coming down, neither dealing with it and leaving the space for the shot.

Second half while chasing the game was poor from us. In the first half we`d been able to get forward with some decent play but, after half-time, we seemed determined not to try anything that involved passing further than 10 yards. It was as if everything had to be perfect, rather than just mixing up the passing with some simple balls as we`d done to good effect before half-time. With 20 minutes left, it was hard to see us scoring as we`d looked way off the pace since half-time, but we started to be a bit more direct when Jakubiak came on and they started to look a bit flustered at the back in trying to deal with it. O`too was unlucky with a well-hit shot off the post, and thankfully we did eventually manage to score from one near the end.

We`re not having the best run of results just now, but not much has gone our way in recent games. Sometimes that`s just they way it goes, but the good thing is that we`ve maanged to stay competitive in most games, even though the breaks haven`t really been going our way.

Duncan Ferguson was obviously pleased to get a point which says it all. Let`s face it, if ICT had hit the goal-frame 6 or 7 times without scoring we`d be blaming our defence for allowing them the chances rather than saying they were poor finishers.

I was pleased to see us creating more chances than normal and KRH and Matty getting some game-time. It was a bit of a gamble bringing on the strikers when we had no control of midfield but it paid off eventually. When your left CB hits the post from outside the box in a right central midfield position you deserve to get something from the game.

One of those games you have to take on the chin. On the positive side, we can create chances. On another day, 3 or 4 would have gone in. With players coming back, we will become stronger. Psychologically, it's getting into the head space where we can be clinical. If we can bang in 3 or 4 goals in a game in the next couple of weeks, the flood gates will open, I think. Still think we are a top 4 side.

When you hit the woodwork so many times, it can only be described as desperately unlucky. Some doom mongers on here had us relegated at half time. Not a chance. This team is going to give someone a doing at some point. With Toddy and KRH back, we are a stronger team and they are not fully fit yet. Add Bene, Breeny & Summers and we will be even better. This will free up Hamilton and Otoo to strengthen the midfield also. A playoff place at the top is perfectly achievable.

Euan Anderson is the new Stephen Finnie/Craig Charleston for me. I thought I’d mellowed in my old age with the ref rage but couldn’t help myself today, based on our history with this guy in the middle.

We regularly get baffling decisions made against us with this fud in charge. The foul on Jakubiak was a clear penalty kick, inexcusable not to give that as a penalty.

Also, the cheek of the man to constantly point at his watch with the Caley keeper timewasting at every opportunity, refusing to brandish a yellow card then, but then proceeding to add only 3 minutes of stoppage time on!? Yet at Tannadice earlier in the season, he finds 7 minutes of stoppage time out of nowhere. Add on top of that the inability to give a red card for serious foul play by Fraser Murray in the Viaplay Cup game earlier in the season.

Absolutely walloper of a man.

There was also the case when Paul Allen got treated after his head knock and the Inverness player got booked for it. The ref made them both leave the pitch, but Allen shouldn’t have had to leave due to the yellow card. That’s the ref not knowing or applying the rules.

That`s a bit harsh to compare him to Finnie. Very few referees come anywhere near the awfulness of that clown, who was the worst to referee at a high level in Scotland for a long time. He might have got away with being murder if it hadn`t been for his constant need to aggressively point fingers in players` faces every game, but the combination of the two put him a level apart. Craig Napier is the only one of the current lot who comes close, and I don`t think I`ve seen him do one of our games since the play-off game.

I thought it was a very good penalty shout today as well, and he maybe would have had to go for it as well, given that Jakubiak surely would have been about to get a shot away. Similarlay puzzled at only 3 minutes injury time. But, at Tannadice they equalised in the 5th extra minute, and most of the rest was due to the delay restarting. Wasn`t really any problem with that. I also thought he was right with that decicison against Kilmarnock and also OK today aside from that penalty shout.

Good sign that we are peppering the woodwork -- means that we are creating chances again.

Technically, a shot against the woodwork is off target, but it often doesn`t go out of play and creates havoc for the defense so it is much better than a shot that truly misses the target.

We just might take the wee team apart on Friday.

Undoubtedly?
What happens to, "The table doesn`t lie" so often quoted when it suits the agenda?

2 points off 4th with a game in hand doesn`t suggest anything is undoubted.

Granted we are only 3 above 2nd bottom but surely that indicates several teams are marginaly more likely to feature in this battle than we are. we also have players returning, which makes it a bit less undoubted too.

Not saying we won`t be but it isn`t undoubted.

Having seen the video of the woodwork being struck, its incredible that at least 1 of them hasn’t gone in! Its not poor finishing either, as every one has left the keeper completely rooted and its been literally a matter of inches that it hasn’t gone in off, especially the one that comes back out, hits Devine, then hits the post again!

Typical doom mongers on here after a no win result…..wont be happy till we are bottom to go “I told you so”

Seeing the replays this morning, I can’t believe McCann hit the post when he went round the keeper, then Moffat missed the follow up. Both chances should have been buried. Unbelievably McCann’s goal was his hardest chance. We really should have had 6 points from the last two games but poor finishing has let us down, as well as goals that could have been easily avoided at the other end.

Been thinking about what I said about the team currently being a bit fragile. After reading what James McPake said after the game, I was wrong. At no time did the heads go down, even after Ewan Otoo`s effort, and it says so much for the squad and management that a late equaliser was achieved. The fans also kept going, very few grumbles around me. Well done to all, it won`t be long before we go on a strong run.

Football is so easy for some fans; you should convert every chance that comes your way and not concede any soft goals.

None of these chances was a `sitter`. They either took the opposition by surprise or had to be attempted under pressure or in an instant; one was an attempted clearance by a defender. There were two `double chances` but on an another day they would have resulted in five goals instead of one.

Moffats should have been buried? Eh? There was 2 defenders directly between him and the goal and hes managed to put it within an inch of the top corner 😂

If parrot is correct and we are only 3 points clear of second bottom then strictly speaking we are in the relegation battle now but also going for the play off place. I think this situation could continue right up to the last few games of the season because there is so little between most of the teams in this league.

In a competitive league with only 10 teams and 6 of the 10 positions leading to promotion/relegation or a possibility of it after the season ends, most teams will likely be in a promotion and relegation battle most of the season - to use either term is pretty much meaningless at the moment.

The fact that promotion and relegation is a possibility for most of the teams for most of the season, is the one half decent argument for such a small league.

I`d say there is more chance of us being in the promotion than the relegation playoffs after 38 games, but that`s pretty far away. I just want to see us beat Rovers next Friday, why look further ahead than that?

@wee eck, I don`t think any pars fan is realistically expecting us to score from every single chance or not to concede an occasional soft goal. However, when it is taking 8+ chances to score a goal, surely you can understand where some fans concerns/frustrations are coming from?

The players get criticised for not shooting. Yesterday they had half a dozen shots that missed the target by inches. To me , that`s progress. Of course it`s frustrating but anyone who follows football or has played it knows that putting the ball in the net is the hardest thing to do. Duncan Ferguson acknowledged his team were lucky. Why can`t Pars` fans?

I don’t remember ever seeing the woodwork (or goalframe?) being hit so often.

We had a more attacking line-up – Todd was almost an auxiliary forward, and we seemed to be getting more players in the box – McCann, Todd, Moffat, KRH, even Allan and Edwards, so it was no surprise we created more chances.

I think Kelty called it right with the chances that came off the posts – imo McCann missed an easier one with the header earlier on – he did get his head to a couple later, which I think is an improvement, so I think he more than deserved his goal. Well done to McPake for persisting with him – it would have been easy to conclude it wasn’t his day and give someone else a shot.

I agree that hitting the post doesn’t count as a shot on target – possibly it should be a separate category. Where you have difficulty is which a shot that is blocked. If one is cleared off the line it is clearly on target – if it is blocked at close range at the edge of the box, guesswork comes into play, then you have the beloved cross-cum-shot…

Clearly if one of the shots goes in, the game is irrevocably changed and the other chances don’t arise – in particular if McCann goes round the keeper and scores, Moffat doesn’t get the chance to follow up. Good anticipation from McCann though, which is key.

I felt our play was a bit ponderous at times, allowing ICT plenty of time to regroup. A lot of it came through the left – if Otoo came forward, it tended to go to Edwards who had a mixed game. If Fisher brought it forwards sometimes he swung it to the opposite wing. I imagine ICT had viewed KRH as a threat and were keen to deny him the ball.

I didn’t really think Todd or KRH would get more than an hour – it seems to be the way of comebacks after injury for offensive players – 15 mins as sub, then an hour from the start, then 80 minutes, then you are good for the full game.

After the “too many substitutes” error last week (I was surprised nothing more was made of this – did Chris Graham get a gig this week or has he been quietly demoted?) I was baffled by Paul Allan not being allowed to resume immediately after treatment since the culprit was booked. Is there a head injury protocol at play here? I didn’t notice any official assessment like you’d get if there was bleeding.

Overall, we should have won, but happy to get a point in the end. I think we are getting the hang of this division and should be looking up the way.

It was one of those games where any fair minded analyst would say they can’t have been disappointed at the players on the park.
Frustration yes when we hit the post and bar 6 times before the inevitable Inverness goal but it would be ludicrous to lay any blame on the players in our team who must have been equally frustrated wondering how we hadn’t scored three goals by half time.
I see nothing to be despondent about regarding our league position as I really think we will finish the season strongly when we have a fully fit squad.
Long term we really need a penalty box striker who can guarantee 20 goals but every single team are looking for such a striker with limited finances.
We are not so far away from having a team to be reckoned with though.

If we`d had square posts yesterday, would the first one (McCann`s shot across goal) have gone in? I think it would.

I agree that the only chance we should have done better with was McCann`s early header that he fluffed and put wide. None of the ones off the post or bar were especially bad misses. That first one from McCann across goal was a really good effort and was just very unlucky that it didn`t go in.

People often talk as if luck isn`t a real thing and that everything is explainable by decisions made on the park and by the manager. With many things that is the case, but breaks of the ball happen all the time. Some folk, generally those who always want to put a relntlessly positive spin on everything, rarely acknowledge breaks that go in our favour while others won`t acknowledge when thngns go against us. Even looking again at the goal we lost, although it wasn`t well defended it was still a bit lucky as Devine completely scuffs his attempted header back across, it causes confusion and ends up falling for him to hit it himself. The breaks have definitely not been going our way recently.

You’re absolutely correct. I’ve seen enough of this team to see they can give everyone a game and at the very worst we’ll be outside the promotion playoffs.
Barring a major disaster of lack of team confidence, we seem to be in very good hands on and off the park.
Still think we were hasty to let go of Toderov though.
An impact sub who could win a game.
We have an abundance of support strikers but no goal machine in the penalty box.
I think back to Kevin Nisbet who could win us games whilst playing p*** poor football and that’s the kind of young player we should be looking for.

In Crawford`s first year as manager the first 7 games I went to we never scored a single goal.In the 8th match we finally scored but then lost 3-1 to Alloa🤣 I think I was just a bad luck omen but nonetheless a pretty unenjoyable time to be a supporter.I can`t remember watching more 0-0s under any other manager?
I`m not sure he really improved McManus or Faissal in their second spells here either?

Better to have fewer goals from more players I think. Yesterday looked like a good setup to do so and it was only an inch away from bearing fruiton several occasions.

I think the ref did point to his head when refusing to allow Paul Allen on but the fact he let him on about 10 second later once the ball was in play made that a bit farcical, unless it`s just one of those rules.

Re shots on target - does anyone know the actual criteria? If a shot from distance is on target but it`s blocked by a crowd of players on the 18 yard line for example is that counted? I think that would be quite hard to judge. Maybe it only counts if it`s stopped in the 6 yard box?

Stevie resigned as our manager, 1st team manager at that and we think he’d come in for pennies to take strikers?. Why would he accept a job taking strikers only. I’m sure he’s got far bigger targets in his career.
He’s quoted as being linked to Tampa Bay as Robbie Neilsons assistant again having been a premiership number 2 last season. He has also stated that he’s helping put a strategy in place at Rosyth (his boyhood club and where he grew up) to give something back.
He’ll be back at a good full time level soon I’ve no doubt

I think that`s over-egging it slightly... it was a good ball dropped into a dangerous area for sure, but McCann had a hell of a lot still to do. I think he and Allan were overrun somewhat and that can cause issues against teams who have a decent midfield - Inverness are one and the Rovers will be a similar test on Friday night.

Not necessarily because they had a decent midfield, more to do with the fact that their midfield was a more solid shape which meant Allan and Chalmers were left 2 on 3 a lot.
Moffat and Todd were slightly further forward with the flexibility we were trying to use and we never got to grips with passing the opposition players over so gaps were more easily found in the middle

A good ball into a dangerous area is good yes (as I said myself) but a "cracking assist" for me is a defence splitting pass, a ball that only requires a touch to go in, or something similar. A chipped ball in where the striker has to chest the ball down and fire off a volley in a crowded vox is more about the work of the striker than the assist maker IMO.

I wasn`t able to get to the game, but I`ve watched the highlights and I can`t believe that some posters refuse to concede that we were unlucky to hit the posts and bar so many times, preferring instead to come out with smartass comments that we failed to hit the target on each occasion. Technically correct, but still extremely unlucky all the same.

To be honest, I had almost given up hope of an equaliser. If it hadn’t have been for demonstrating optimism to my grandson then I maybe would have. I did tell him it is hard being a Pars fan at times. I also noticed the slow walk out before McCann scored.
So there it is, the team have more faith than some in their ability and they have shown it again.

Onwards and upwards for a nice wee defeat of the wee team.

Statistically, the final 10 minutes (+ injury time) is the most likely time for goals to be scored. It`s also when fans are most likely to leave the ground early...

Match stats should be banned, imo. A trundling shot, easily mopped up by the keeper, is classed as a shot on target,whereas a 30 yard screamer that hits the underside of the bar and bounces back out with the keeper helpless is off target.

Not in the least misleading, eh?
