Caley Thistle midfielder Liam Polworth will be disappointed if his side does not claim a Championship top-four place this season.
Inverness have made an undefeated start to their league campaign this year, and trail league leaders Ayr United by just three points after seven games.
Following a slow start to last season, Caley Jags made a late rally and finished just two points adrift of Dunfermline who secured the final play-off spot.
Polworth feels his side have shown they are a match for any team in the league and he is determined not to fall short this time around.
He said: “As long as we can keep not losing games and picking up wins, that’s the most important thing. Even if we are getting draws we are still picking up the points. It will keep us exactly where we want to be.
“I think we should definitely make the top four, that’s what our first aim would be, and then we will take it from there.
“I don’t think there’s any reason we can’t make the top four. Looking at the 0-0 draw with Ross County over at Dingwall, they were heavy favourites at the start of the season given what they have spent and put into it.
“I felt we battered them for the first 60 minutes though, without taking our chances. I don’t think there’s anything out there in the league so far that would show we are miles off it.
“People are not going to chat too much about us when County are over the road spending that money, while there’s the likes of Dunfermline, Dundee United as well as Partick Thistle who came down.
“There are a lot of teams who were deemed to be ahead of us at the start of the season but we managed to keep most of our players.
“We just tried to take it on from last year. Once you get on a run, you don’t even have to be the best team in the league to win it. But I think we could do all right.”
Caley Thistle go into today’s home match against Morton on the back of successive goalless draws with Ross County and Queen of the South, and Polworth is determined to find a ruthless edge, adding: “Everyone is pretty confident. We feel like we haven’t lost a game in a long time.
“We feel we need to turn the draws into wins. We are tight at the back, the boys are solid, but hopefully we can take that going forward to create more chances and score more goals.
“We want to help the boys out so there’s not as much pressure on them.
“All the forward players know exactly what they need to do, it’s sort of like a freedom to find a way to break them down. Hopefully we can do that.”
Polworth’s father Iain recently stepped down as manager of Highland League side Clachnacuddin following a 10-year stint in charge, and the 23-year-old hopes he will be able to take in more of his Caley Jags outings.
Polworth added: “Over the years he has not had much of a chance to come to the games, whereas the rest of my family come and watch.
“It will be nice for him, something different for him to do.
“I haven’t really spoken to him that much about it, but he will have a few extra nights a week and no long trips on a Saturday.”
