Though St.Johnstone was winning 1-0 in the first leg, Minsk would score one goal, which led the match throughout to extra time until it went on penalty-shootout.[11] Having been ups and down in the first team at the start of the season, Caddis came on as a substitute in the 68th minutes for David Wotherspoon and scored his first goal for the club, in a 2-1 loss against Celtic on 21 September 2013.[12] After making eight appearance for the club this season, Caddis, again, signed a one year contract extension.[13]
