Match ends, Inverness CT 1, Dundee 1.
Ten-man Inverness Caledonian Thistle came from behind to draw with Dundee in a game of two penalties.
The game burst into life after the break when David Raven was sent off for pulling down Greg Stewart and Rory Loy put Dundee ahead with the penalty.
Caley struck back when Kevin Holt was judged to have fouled Ryan Christie and Greg Tansey levelled from the spot.
Both sides had chances to score a winner, but they had to settle for a share of the points.
Injury problems again hampered John Hughes's selection with Miles Storey the latest addition to the list of unavailable players.
A makeshift attack of Williams supported by Christie struggled to create in the final third. Neither side offered much threat in a fairly dour first half bereft of chances.
Josh Meekings did watch a header hit the back of the net, but he appeared to have made his run a shade early and was flagged offside.
Christie also shot tamely at Scott Bain after some great work from Danny Williams down the left-hand side.
The talking points materialised in the second period.
A superb through-ball split the home defence, released Stewart into the box on the left and as he went to shoot, Raven brought him down, earning a straight red card.
Loy confidently slotted home the penalty to put Dundee in front and it seemed a difficult task for Inverness without a recognised striker on the pitch at that point.
However, their opportunity arrived when Liam Polworth went down in the box. His claim was waived away but at that precise moment Christie appeared from nowhere and went down as he raced away from goal towards the touchline.
It looked liked Christie had taken a tumble of his own, but Tansey arrowed his shot right into the corner to level.
With their superior numbers, Dundee enjoyed most possession, but the home side restricted them effectively with Low, Healey and Stewart frustrated as shots could not penetrate.
Polworth almost won it for Hughes' men when he found space in the penalty area and had time to pick his spot.
However, he fluffed his shot wide when he at least should have hit the target.
