In-form striker Billy McKay fired Inverness CT back to the top of the Premiership with a commanding win over Hibernian.

McKay's eighth goal of the season, following a terrible mix-up between Michael Nelson and Ben Williams, gifted Inverness ahead.

Richie Foran scored from close range after Ben Greenhalgh's header came back off the bar.

And McKay sealed the win as he rifled an unstoppable shot beyond Williams.

Inverness, looking to move ahead of Celtic at the top of the table on goal difference, were gifted the opener as Nelson and Williams got into an awful mess and McKay seized on their indecision to score.

The visitors were living dangerously and earned a reprieve as McKay dragged his shot wide as he looked to take advantage of statuesque defending.

Hibs looked poised to equalise when Paul Heffernan sprung the offside trap but he fizzed a shot wide of Dean Brill's goal.

Inverness appeared content with their narrow lead, looking to hit Pat Fenlon's side on the counter attack.

Hibs improved after the break but continued to lack a creative spark in the final third.

Liam Craig's cross caused havoc in the Inverness defence and the ball broke to Tom Taiwo but he blazed over.

McKay spurned a couple of chances to extend Inverness's lead but they nabbed a second when Aaron Doran hit the by-line and dinked over a great cross for Greenhalgh to head onto the bar and Foran applied the finish.

And Terry Butcher's men extended their lead through McKay - his ninth of the campaign - as he rifled the ball home from 20 yards to move Inverness ahead of Celtic on goal difference.
