Motherwell jumped to fourth in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League after claiming a thumping 5-1 away victory over in-form Inverness.
The hosts had not lost in 10 games in all competitions since they last faced the Steelmen in September, when Motherwell romped to a 4-1 victory, but that run came to a comprehensive end following another impressive showing from Stuart McCall's men.
Michael Higdon opened the scoring for the visitors in the 17th minute, with Jamie Murphy doubling the lead four minutes later.
Inverness captain Richie Foran netted three minutes after the restart to reduce the deficit but Adam Cummins' first senior goal restored Well's two-goal cushion.
Henrik Ojamaa added a fourth in the 72nd minute and substitute Omar Daley completed the rout with a minute to go, condemning Inverness to their heaviest home defeat of the campaign so far.
A lacklustre Caley Thistle slipped to seventh in the table following the defeat, despite reclaiming the mantle as the league's top scorers.
