Preview: Brora Rangers v Inverness CT

John Baird should return to the squad as he returns from his brothers wedding as Inverness prepare for their second pre-season match which comes against Brora Rangers.

Pre-Season got off to a winning start on Saturday for the Caley Jags, as Brad McKay’s 78th minute header earned Inverness a 1-0 win at Forres.

The team that started against Forres contained five trialists and the bench contained a further two, but now two have been converted into signings as Mark Ridgers and George Oakley signed for the club on Monday.

Of the remaining five still on trial, Zachary Elbouzedi is the priority for the club as John Robertson confirmed the club are keen to offer the Irish Winger a contract.

That leaves Joe Chalmers, Jack Leitch, Scott Davidson and Ivor Lawton still on trial, but Fort William striker Scott Davidson, confirmed on Instagram he picked up an injury which could keep him out for 4-6 weeks.

The signing of Ridgers is likely to spell the end for Welsh goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams, who is said to be attracting interest from many clubs.

One report in the Scottish Star also said Inverness had rejected a £50,000 offer for vice-captain Ross Draper from Ross County.

Our opponents, Brora are managed by ICTFC legend Ross Tokely. The Brora squad also contains a few familiar faces with ex-ICTFC players Gavin Morrison, Jamie Duff and Zander Sutherland all in the Brora squad.

Brora got their pre-season underway on Saturday too, with a 4-0 win over Lewis and Harris thanks to goals from Kyle Macleod, Paul Brindle, Gavin Morrison and Craig Gunn.

Last seasons trip to Dudgeon Park resulted in a 1-1 stalemate with a late Liam Poloworth goal rescuing Inverness that day.
