Storey has 2020 vision for in-form Caley Thistle

Caley Thistle attacker Miles Storey hopes the Highlanders can carry their winning run into 2020 to keep the pressure up on Championship leaders Dundee United.

Inverness made it three victories on the trot with Saturday’s 2-0 win over Ayr United at Caledonian Stadium, to move four points clear of third-placed Dunfermline.

Narrowing the seven-point gap on Dundee United is the next aim, with Englishman Storey hoping to finish the year on a high with wins against former club Partick Thistle, Dunfermline and Arbroath.

Storey said: “It’s a good string of wins – and four clean sheets.

“I always back us to score goals, we have got goals all over the pitch. If we keep a clean sheet, nine times out out of 10 I think we will win games. We have got that much quality throughout the squad.

“It’s nice to stick it together and create a bit of a gap above Ayr now.

“We have a number of games coming up and we have set where we want to be going into New Year.

“We will try not to concentrate too much on other people – we can only control what we do.

“We have three games before New Year, so we will try to get maximum points and look at kicking on next year.”

Jordan White makes in 1-0 to Caley Thistle.

Former Aberdeen forward Storey feels the Highlanders have returned to their stride following a recent dip in form, and the 25-year-old added: “In the last two games, I think we have passed the ball a lot better than we had done in our little run of games before that.

“The Dundee game was a bit of a scrap, but that’s two games now where we have played really well and created chances. It’s enjoyable to be part of the team at the minute. We are knocking it around and creating chances, and everyone is working for each other. I think you can see that.

“Everyone is shattered when they come off, so we have to keep it up.”

Storey netted his third goal since rejoining Caley Jags for a second spell during the summer, to add to Jordan White’s first half strike.

Storey was relieved to find the net after ignoring pleas to square the ball following his 40-yard run at goal, adding: “I got into the box and was looking to maybe square it across the box.

“I was going to do it with the outside of my foot, but I thought if that didn’t come off I would get no end of trouble. It’s good to be back on the scoresheet.”
