Caley Thistle manager John Robertson is gearing his side up for a final push from his players at Morton today, urging them to capitalise on any slip up from Dunfermline this afternoon.
Inverness are outsiders for the final promotion play-off place, with their only remaining hope of finishing fourth resting on a victory at Cappielow, matched by a shock Dumbarton victory away to the Pars at East End Park.
Robertson knows the odds are stacked against his side, but he is eager to ensure Caley Jags do not finish the afternoon with regret if the second-bottom Sons pull off an unlikely victory in Fife.
Robertson said: “We are keeping Dunfermline honest and that’s all we could do. The late goal took it out our hands.
“We all know we need a small footballing miracle, but you never know. Pressure can do strange things.
“Do I expect Dunfermline to lose the match? No. Do I expect them to pick up at least a point? Yes.
“But again we need to go and do what we need to do, which is win at a very difficult place. We can’t affect what is going elsewhere. Our only one objective is to win the match and what will be, will be.”
Robertson is eager to round off the campaign in style following an excellent run, which has seen Caley Jags win six of their last seven matches.
Robertson, who has midfielder Iain Vigurs back from suspension but is without skipper Gary Warren with a calf injury, added: “We will try to finish the season on a high because the lads have been terrific.
“We’re unbeaten in 11 games now and we want to see that through to the finish.
“If we don’t make it, it will be down to one thing only – Dunfermline scoring in the 95th minute with three games to go.
“That is the business end of the season and that’s the furthest back you can go. It was in our hands until that moment, and if that’s the defining moment.
“We can’t go back and say ‘if only we started better’ as we would have loved to have done that. The defining moment will be the Nicky Clark goal if we don’t get to where we want to get to.”
