Caley Thistle defender Gary Warren is determined to repay Inverness’ supporters by finishing in seventh place in the Premiership.
Having missed out on a top-six place, the Highlanders have enjoyed a return to form in recent weeks, and are on an unbeaten run of three wins from their last four matches.
Caley Jags are eighth in the table, just a point behind Dundee, but the club would receive more than £50,000 extra in prize money if they can leapfrog the Dark Blues.
Warren reckons a strong finish to the campaign can provide cause for optimism ahead of next season and said: “It is all about finishing the best of the rest. Seventh is what we’re aiming for. Financially it is what the club needs to kick on with a few more signings. Also for ourselves as professionals, there is personal pride.
“We go all out to win games and give the best for people turning up and paying their money to watch us. That’s what we’re trying to do in the last three games of the season.”
Caley Jags’ latest victory was an emphatic 4-1 win at Partick Thistle on Saturday, and Warren is pleased his team-mates refusing to let the season fizzle out.
The 31-year-old added: “To go away from home, play against a team renowned as our bogy side and come away with a 4-1 win victory was fantastic. To score four in any game is a good achievement.
“It was pleasing. It is coming to the end of the season but it’s good we are all still trying to kick on and keep picking up points and putting in good performances.
“I don’t think we’ve been too far off it in the last few weeks. But that’s been the story of our season. We’ve had a good spell and then gone on a bad run.
“We haven’t really been consistent over the season to merit a top-six finish.
“But in the last five or six games we’ve been impressive in attack and defence.”
