Lights halt Highland derby
Friday night's Scottish Premiership clash between Ross County and Inverness was forced to be postponed because of faulty floodlights.
The lights went out at half-time at the Global Energy Stadium and despite a couple of aborted attempts referee John Beaton was forced to call a halt to proceedings with the score still goalless.
As well as the frustration for the supporters, it was far from ideal for either team with the visitors looking to move level with leaders Celtic and the hosts desperate for victory to climb into the top six.
The referee said there was no other choice but to postpone the match once a third attempt to get the floodlights working failed.
Beaton said: "We've been speaking to the police, we've had two attempts to put the floodlights back on, the third attempt looked like it was going to work okay but obviously the lights are down again and we can't leave it any longer.
"The officials are as disappointed as the players will be, that's why we gave it as long as we possibly could, but it's obviously now past that point and we have to pull the plug on the match unfortunately.
"It's the last resort and the last thing we want to do, but we have to be fair to the fans. We've got TV as well, and the police, and ultimately we can't leave the players too long, then you risk injuries and other things, but naturally everybody's disappointed."
Inverness had looked the most lively in the opening 45 minutes with Nick Ross and Billy McKay going close, while Graham Carey and Ivan Sproule impressed for County.
In a flashpoint just before half-time Caley Thistle's Ross Draper and Mihael Kovacevic and De Leeuw were all booked after Kevin Luckassen was fouled.
Inverness boss Terry Butcher stated: "It's just one of those things. I'm not sure what the reason was but we live to fight another day and we'll come back and do it all again. It's disappointing of course."
