Inverness reached the third round of the CIS Insurance Cup with a 3-1 win over Dumbarton.
Inverness Caledonian Thistle reached the third round of the CIS Insurance Cup with a 3-1 win over Third Division outfit Dumbarton.
Second half goals from Graham Bayne and Rory McAllister ensured victory for the SPL club after the two sides went in level at the break.
A much-changed Caley side took the lead inside six minutes as Dennis Wyness fired home from close range after a mistake by Dumbarton goalkeeper Stephen Grindlay.
However, their advantage was short-lived as the visitors levelled before the half-hour mark through Stephen Dobbie.
The dream was still alive for Dumbarton at half-time but strikes from Bayne (52) and McAllister (72) in the second 45 minutes put the tie out of reach.
