Inverness Caledonian Thistle are offering supporters a "pay what you can" deal for the visit of St Johnstone on 20 January.

League Two Albion Rovers piloted a similar scheme last season, with increased gate receipts.

Inverness are fifth in the Scottish Premiership, averaging home crowds of 3,819 this season.

Children under 12 accompanied by a paying adult will get free entry to this month's derby with Ross County.

"In relative terms our club is still in its infancy having just recently passed our 20th season in existence," said chairman Kenny Cameron.

"We do not have the supporter base of some of the older clubs but will continue to work hard with the Highland community and beyond to turn this around.

"We often hear in the press that games in Scotland are over priced and if prices were slashed crowds would increase dramatically, well this is certainly an opportunity to dip our toes in the water and see if this is really the case.

"We feel it is certainly worth trying and if it successful we would certainly look at doing it again and then the carry over from that would be a full review of our pricing structures for next season."
