Caley Thistle defender Gary Warren has his sights on creating history by leading his side into European competition for the first time.
The Highlanders moved six points clear of fourth-placed Dundee United after a 2-1 win at St Mirren on Saturday. Having just missed out on a Europa League place last year, Warren is determined to go one better.
He said: “We will not be happy with just being a top-six side now. We want to go one better and finish in the Europa League places.
“It’s putting pressure on ourselves but we should be able to cope with that. We’re still in the Scottish Cup and have a very good chance but our focus on the league is to finish as high as we can and top three is a possibility.
“We’ve come a long way in the last few years and to get to where we are now, if we don’t finish top three or with something to show at the end of the season will be a disappointment. For a club the size of Inverness it would be an amazing achievement to play in Europe but we have to apply ourselves in every game.”
The Highlanders were made to struggle for their fourth straight away win and, while pleased to have won again, Warren knows there is still room for improvement. He said: “After the first-half performance we should have been four or five up and to only go in one up left us on a tightrope. It was the same last week at Partick Thistle where we were dominant in the first half but let ourselves down in the second.
“We didn’t pass the ball as well as we could in the second half but we came away with the three points again and it shows how far we have come when we are coming off the park winning four in a row away from home and we are still not happy.”
