Caley Thistle boss John Robertson admitted his side were fortunate to win 2-1 against Dunfermline.
The Caley Jags took three Championship points at East End Park last night after Tom Walsh’s winner.
Robertson’s men had been pegged back after going 1-0 up via Aaron Doran’s strike.
The Inverness manager said: “Stevie Crawford must be cursing us, because there has been nothing in all three games between the sides.
“The game here last time had 0-0 written all over it before we got a late penalty.
“In the game up in Inverness, young Kevin Nisbet, unlike him, missed a couple of good chances and we took ours.
“This was another really even game, with two unbelievable goals, both incredible strikes. It looked like it was going to play out at 1-1, they had a couple of chances and we hit the post.
“We then got a bit of fortune, but we were still brave in going forward.
“I’m not saying we deserved it, because we didn’t. I think if it had finished 1-1 it would have been a fair reflection.
“If you are a Pars fan you would think we were lucky, but we have kept working hard. It was great to play on a pitch like that, and full credit to the ground staff.
“It was a magnificent surface, as the fields we have been playing on have been tough on the players.”
Caley Thistle’s win moved them three points clear in the Championship’s second position, and Robertson hopes it will also give them some momentum going into their Scottish Cup quarter-final clash with Hibernian later in the week.
He said: “Going into Friday at Easter Road it was massive for us to get the three points to get us back into the groove of winning games.
“It has been a great month for us. Dundee United have beaten us and we were a wee bit unlucky in that game.
“We have consolidated second place, got to a cup final and we are in the quarter finals of the Scottish Cup.
“It has been a terrific month and that now allows us to go to Easter Road with confidence to give it a real go – and we will see where it takes us.”
