Caley Thistle midfielder Tom Walsh feels his side have been at their strongest on the road this season.
Although Inverness remain the only unbeaten side in the Championship so far this season, John Robertson’s men have drawn four of their five home matches so far.
Caley Jags’ away form makes for impressive reading however, with victories at Falkirk and Dunfermline and a goalless draw away to title favourites Ross County.
Walsh hopes his side can take out the frustration at their missed opportunities at Caledonian Stadium by returning from Dundee United with another fine away result.
He said: “If teams come out to try and attack us, that can play into our hands. Away from home we’ve had a good shape and we’ve been really good on the counter-attack. We showed that at Dunfermline and Falkirk.
“When teams come up here, they are sitting in more and we’re having to find gaps. We haven’t been able to beat teams that way as often. That’s why we’ve drawn a lot of matches – teams have had a good shape, maybe nicked a goal and put pressure on us to get two or three.
“But we know we can counter-attack and we knpow we can keep the ball as well. We’re frustrated by the home draws and we’ve probably been better away from home this season, possibly on the counter-attack more than having possession where teams can sit in.
“We’ll look to do that on Saturday and continue our good results away from home.”
Walsh, who joined Inverness from Dumbarton in the summer, feels his side, who are 19 league matches unbeaten, must show a ruthless edge to convert draws into victories.
The 22-year-old added: “In terms of possession, Inverness were always very good at it when I came here last season – one of the better teams in the league in terms of keeping the ball and moving it.
“We need to find that cutting edge and in away games we have done. Hopefully, we can continue that this weekend.
“We want to keep the unbeaten run going but obviously turn it into wins. That’s what is going to make the difference in being up the top or not.”
New Dundee United manager Robbie Neilson will take charge of his first home match, having started his reign with a 2-1 victory at Partick Thistle last weekend, and Walsh is aiming to silence the Tannadice crowd.
Former Rangers player Walsh added: “For the first home game with the new manager the crowd is always up for it. We’ve got to counter that and just go and play our game.”
