Match ends, Arbroath 0, Inverness CT 1.
Shane Sutherland's second-half goal proved enough to give Inverness Caledonian Thistle an opening Scottish Championship win over Arbroath.
Sutherland had come closest to breaking the deadlock before the break when his effort was cleared off the line.

But three minutes later Sutherland raced through and dinked the ball over Gaston to win the game for Inverness.
