Dundee United 1-1 Inverness CT: Robbie Neilson claims point in home bow

Coll Donaldson
Coll Donaldson was sent off after Inverness levelled

Robbie Neilson took a point against Inverness Caledonian Thistle in his first home game in charge of Dundee United.

United striker Pavol Safranko glanced a header inches wide before he opened the scoring with a bullet header.

Caley Thistle were back on level terms in the 72nd minute when Jordan White rose in a crowded box to loop a header past Benjamin Siegrist.

Coll Donaldson was sent off with eight minutes later for a second booking.

A Paul McMullan curling shot by the post was all the home side could muster as they sought a winner.
