As you can see this was no Alamo type performance from Inverness. The only uneven statistic is the amount of shots for Celtic. Despite having triple the amount of efforts, they only had just over double on target. This shows that Celtic were forced into speculative efforts. This shows that the defensive tactics of Inverness worked.
By shielding their 18 yard box (the larger square in the picture) Inverness prevented Celtic getting in behind them and creating too many chances. The midfielders push out in front, creating two banks of four, arrayed in line with the 18 yard box. The strikers, work against the opposition midfielders and defenders, chasing for the ball and closing down the play before it has a chance to develop.
Inverness' job was made easier due to the fact that Lennon admits that Celtic need more attacking options. The Celtic boss is after two more strikers, after the departure of Gary Hooper.
