Caley Thistle striker George Oakley believe one win is all his side needs to get their stuttering season back on track.
Inverness made it a club record 23 games unbeaten with a 2-2 draw against Ross County in the Highland derby on Saturday but the draw was the club’s seventh in a row and ninth in the last 11 matches.
The frustrating sequence has resulted in Caley Jags slipping to fifth in the Championship, 10 points adrift of leaders Ayr United after 12 matches.
Oakley, who scored on his return from a hamstring injury on his derby debut, said: “If we can just take that goal and keep that win we’ll be fine.
“I believe one win will give us the momentum to kick on and we are really focused on going all out to get that win against Partick and get ourselves going again.
“Saturday was a frustrating game for us. We deserved to win the game with the chances we had and we feel their second goal was offside but that’s football. We feel we deserved a lot more out of it but it was nice to score in a Highland derby.
“I know what it is like to play in a Highland derby and score now which is now.
“When I was first injured I didn’t think I’d be out so long. It’s been seven weeks and it has been quite hard as I was blowing a little bit against Ross County but it was good to get 60 minutes in the tank.
“I feel mentally strong and I’m happy to get a goal and be back.”
Caley Jags manager John Robertson is equally frustrated at the run of draws but insists the achievement of 23 games unbeaten should not go unnoticed.
He said: “I’ve been in football for 40 years and never seen anything like this. I was in a team which went 27 games unbeaten but there is always a win in there somewhere.
“If someone had said to me we would be unbeaten in 12 I’d be thinking eight wins or seven wins is in that run but three wins and nine draws is unbelievable.
“There have been three or four games like Saturday where we should have taken the three points but others where we have been fortunate but it is hugely frustrating.
“We’re as good as anybody in this league and had we even won four and lost three of the seven draws we’d be right on the tails of Ross County.
“The players have to use breaking the club record as a springboard.”
