Caley Thistle manager John Robertson reckons six wins from his side’s remaining eight Championship matches can put Inverness back in contention for a promotion play-off place.
Inverness are 11 points behind fourth-placed Dunfermline, but have the opportunity to cut that gap with a victory at home to bottom side Brechin City tonight.
Robertson has been encouraged by his side’s recent displays, with a spirited comeback securing a 2-2 draw against league leaders St Mirren on Saturday, and the Caley Jags boss wants to keep the momentum going.
He said: “We are in decent form. We played very well at Tannadice a few weeks ago, and were tremendously unlucky not to win the game.
“We followed that up with a victory in the IRN-BRU Cup final which was hard-earned, and then we played very well against Dundee United.
“We played well again on Saturday in long spells, but St Mirren are a good side. They are good at what they do, they hit you on the break and they’ve got real pace.
“Whilst we had to deal with that, we hung in there. At 2-0 down it would have been easy for the players to throw in the towel but they didn’t. There is character there.
“We are not far from being a decent side. We need possibly two or three additions, we have learned as we have gone along. But we are still hanging in there.
“We are hanging by the fingernails but if we can keep picking up the results we feel our play merits, we can still be involved in the shake-up.
“There are eight matches left and if we can win three quarters of them, we will have a real shout.”
Caley Jags have a full squad to choose from, with winger Jake Mulraney back in contention after shaking off a thigh strain.
