Caley Thistle manager Richie Foran says his players must continue to build momentum in pursuit of Premiership safety on Saturday when they take on Kilmarnock.
Inverness won 2-1 against Hamilton on Saturday to reignite their hopes of climbing off the bottom of the table, with four points separating them from the relegation play-off position with three games left.
With time running out for Caley Jags, Foran is relishing this weekend’s trip to Rugby Park in an attempt to further cut the gap.
He said: “We’ve got to concentrate on Kilmarnock now. It’s a great game to look forward to. They’re a really good side and will have watched us on Saturday, so we’ll need to up our game as well.
“We need to take care of our business. There are nine points up for grabs – – let’s go and get them.”
Foran knows Inv still have a mountain to climb in their efforts to prolong their seven-year top-flight stay, and the Irishman has urged his players to keep their feet on the ground.
He added: “Anyone watching us on Saturday will see how good we are.
“It was a great win and a great confidence boost but I’ll try not to get over-excited with it.
“We created chances, dominated the game, won our headers. We showed great attitude and desire.
“There’s quality there in abundance and we need to take that into Saturday.
“I told the boys to be proud of themselves but they must now concentrate their life to this football club for the next two weeks.”
Foran felt the defensive solidity brought by returning skipper Gary Warren, who had served a two-match suspension, provided the foundation of Saturday’s victory.
Caley Jags have only recorded two Premiership clean sheets all season and Foran knows more strong defending is required in the remaining matches.
Foran said: “I thought Gary was magnificent, it was a real captain’s performance. He was my man of the match all day long.
“Gary and Louis Laing won every header and the whole back four was magnificent.”
