Foran looking to pick up where Caley Jags left off

Caley Thistle manager Richie Foran says his side must convert draws into wins in order to continue their push up the Premiership table.

Inverness’ 1-1 draw against Highland rivals Ross County in their last outing moved them off the bottom of the table on goal difference above Hamilton Accies, with Caley Jags at home to Kilmarnock this afternoon.

The Highlanders have lost just one of their last six league matches but have also won just once during that sequence, with their 2-1 triumph against Rangers one of only four Premiership victories all season.

Foran wants to build on the recent momentum by adding more wins, and he said: “We are looking to draw other sides closer to us in the table. We are moving up and looking forward. We want to bring others into the relegation battle. We really need three points.

“We are up against a really good side with a strong midfield and natural goalscorers. Physically, they are very dangerous from set-pieces, so there is not much in it in terms of quality. We have to be better at creating chances for our forwards.

“We look at the situation in the league every Saturday at 4.45pm. It changes all the time. There might be three of four more teams in it or one team pulls out of it. Game by game it changes. At the moment there are six or seven teams in it. We are looking to get out of that and see if we can we can go on a winning run.

“This is a home game and, no disrespect to them, we have to be beating them at home. We slipped up against Ross County and we are still hurting from that. Let’s turn that hurt into three points.”

Foran, who was dealt the blow of midfielder Greg Tansey signing a pre-contract with Aberdeen earlier this week, reckons his players look up for the challenge of continuing to move up the table, and he added: “It was great to get off the bottom going into the international break. Training has been immense. Standards were very high, very competitive, there was no holding the lads back.

“I saw a real difference. There was a real sharpness and desire and it will be a tough team to pick for Saturday. We are looking very strong and it is a good headache to have.”
