Inverness CT 0-1 Dundee United

Paul McMullan scores a penalty
Paul McMullan scored his fourth goal of the season

Inverness Caledonian Thistle started life in the Scottish Championship with defeat at home to Dundee United.

Paul McMullan converted a penalty for the visitors after Joe Chalmers had fouled the United attacker.

Sam Stanton missed an excellent chance to double the Tangerines' lead in the second half, firing over with the goal gaping.

And Caley Thistle, relegated from the Premiership last season, could not find a way back into the match.

The hosts also had manager John Robertson sent to the stand on a disappointing day for the home fans.
