Caley Thistle attacker Miles Storey is counting on the help of coach Barry Wilson to adapt to his new wide role.
Englishman Storey, who returned to the Caledonian Stadium for a second spell on a two-year deal after leaving Partick Thistle last summer, has mainly played as a striker during a career which has seen him also feature for the likes of Aberdeen, Swindon Town and Portsmouth.
Former winger Wilson was an Inverness favourite during his own playing career and Storey credits the Caley Jags first team coach with mentoring him in his switch.
Storey said: “I’m learning this position. I have played there quite a lot this season, having predominantly played up front in my career.
“It’s a position I like. I have just got to learn how to make more dangerous runs and be in between the goal to get myself some chances.
“I can do the stuff where I go outside and cross it, using my pace. I’ve just got to be a bit more clever. The manager, Scott Kellacher and Barry Wilson are working hard on me to do that, so I can play that position better.
“That was Barry’s position – and he’s working his hardest to get my crossing better. I’m working on it. It’s something I need to improve on.”
Storey feels his speed can make him an effective wide outlet for John Robertson’s side, with the 25-year-old adding: “Sometimes it’s easy for people to say just kick it and run, but if you have done it twice you need to calm it down.
“It’s like a through ball to myself sometimes. I just try to get my team up the pitch sometimes – it’s an asset I need to use a bit more.”
Storey netted 13 goals in 39 appearances during a successful season-long loan with Inverness during the 2015-16 Premiership season, which earned him a move to the Dons.
With three strikes to his name this term, Storey is intent on rekindling his goalscoring form, adding: “I have loved it. By far it has been the most enjoyable club I have been at, so it was a no-brainer to come back when I had the opportunity.
“I’m just trying to help the team as much as I can. Being part of that front four, I think I need to get more goals.
“That’s my main focus, in helping the team. As long as we are winning I suppose it doesn’t really matter.”
Caley Thistle will hold their annual general meeting for shareholders at Caledonian Stadium tonight, starting at 7.30pm.
