Robertson wary of Dumbarton backlash

Inverness manager John Robertson

Caley Thistle were convincing winners over Dumbarton on Saturday but manager John Robertson knows the victory will count for nothing unless they can repeat the feat against the Sons in the Championship tonight.

Inverness have four games remaining in their late bid to secure a promotion play-off place, with maximum points guaranteeing them a place in the top-four.

Robertson is refusing to take anything for granted at the YOUR Radio 103FM Stadium however, despite the emphatic nature of Saturday’s 5-1 victory over Stephen Aitken’s men.

Robertson said: “Double-dunt games are very difficult and it will be a completely different match down there.

“The most important thing for us is to keep this momentum going and keep winning.

“We know it’s going to be very difficult. It was difficult on Saturday until we got the third and fourth goals to kill them off a little bit.

“We expect a really tough match down there. We’ve got to go with the same attitude and same commitment, and be as clinical as we were to hopefully get another result.

“Our aim was to try and get six points from two matches and try to set up a fantastic last week for the club.

“We want to try and win both if we can – and we got through the first part. That would leave one week to go and three matches that are absolutely crucial.

“Our aim now is to go down to Dumbarton, win the match and give ourselves every opportunity of having a really interesting last week of the season.”

Robertson could bring Carl Tremarco, Coll Donaldson and Charlie Trafford back in from the start, after the trio missed Saturday’s game at Caledonian Stadium through suspension.

He added: “We have got three players back available so we will have a full squad. It will be up to us to decide if we freshen it up a little bit or keep the same team. We have to manage and juggle the team but we’ve now got a problem because the three boys who were suspended have been mainstays in the team, but the lads that came in on Saturday did very well.

“As a manager sometimes you are given difficult decisions to make, but all managers will tell you the same thing. You would far rather have difficult decisions to make because of good form and good play, rather than trying to find an answer to solutions when things are not going too well.”
