Caley Thistle manager John Robertson hopes Miles Storey can maintain his recent level of performance ahead of his return to former club Partick Thistle today.
Attacker Storey was an outstanding performer in last weekend’s 2-0 victory over Ayr United, netting his side’s decisive second goal.
Englishman Storey spent two years with Partick before rejoining Inverness for a second spell in the summer, and Robertson feels he is returning to Firhill this afternoon in confident mood.
Robertson said: “When Miles Storey plays like he did last week, in this league, he’s unplayable.
“The pace he has got is just off the charts. I felt sorry for Daniel Harvie at left back because he just kept running at him.
“He’s very difficult to stop when he’s in the mood – and in the last few games in particular he has been in the mood. He knows there’s goals there for him now.”
Inverness were defeated 3-1 by Thistle when they last faced the Glasgow outfit at Caledonian Stadium in September, and despite the Jags sitting ninth in the table Robertson is wary of Ian McCall’s side.
Robertson, who is without injured trio Sean Welsh, Tom Walsh and James Vincent, added: “Thistle are battling for points, and I’m sure they’ll spend big in January, but we know the difficulties they can cause. We played well against them in the first half last time, fell away and they punished us.
“We’ve cut the mistakes that plagued earlier in the season out of our game in recent weeks and, if we do that on Saturday, we’ve every chance of taking the three points.
“We’re on a good run of form, confidence is there. It’s a tough place to go but one where we’ve enjoyed decent results.”
