McKay and Andrew Shinnie struck to put Caley Thistle three ahead inside 27 minutes but Motherwell had scored 15 goals in their five most recent games and 12 against Inverness in three previous meetings this season and they stormed back.

James McFadden hit two goals either side of Michael Higdon's penalty to draw Motherwell level in the 64th minute as they sought the point needed to secure second place. They looked like they might take all three but Henrik Ojamaa was sent off and McKay atoned for an earlier penalty miss when he fired a close-range winner six minutes from time.
