Caley Thistle midfielder Iain Vigurs says his team-mates are only looking up the Championship table after extending their unbeaten run to six games with Saturday’s 0-0 draw away to Livingston.
The point sees Caley Jags remain in seventh place, with only four points separating them from second-bottom Falkirk.
Vigurs took more encouragement from the fact the result moved John Robertson’s men slightly closer to league leaders St Mirren, who went down 2-1 at Dundee United, meaning Inverness are now 10 points adrift of the summit.
Vigurs said: “We were not at our best but we did what we had to do in the game. We’re not looking over our shoulders – we’re only looking up. Unfortunately, we couldn’t get the win but that’s what we’re looking for in the next game.
“We just need to kick on again.”
The result meant Inverness kept a sixth straight clean sheet, with 567 minutes having now passed since they last conceded a goal, when Sam Wardrop netted the winner in a 2-1 victory for Dumbarton on September 23.
Aberdeen-born Vigurs feels the defensive partnership struck up between Coll Donaldson and Brad McKay has been key.
