Caley Thistle goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams feels his side’s victory against Premiership leaders Aberdeen is the perfect preparation for this weekend’s Highland derby.
Inverness take on Ross County at Victoria Park on Saturday, buoyed by their 2-1 win against the Dons last weekend, which extended their unbeaten run to five games.
This weekend’s match will be Fon Williams’ first taste of the north derby since his summer move from Tranmere Rovers and the Welshman is optimistic his side’s recent form will stand them in good stead for the trip to Dingwall.
Fon Williams said: “We are unbeaten in a few games now and we need to continue our momentum and push on from Saturday.
“It could not have been a better game to take us into a local derby than playing against the team at the top of the league.
“We can take everything from last week on to Saturday. It’s going to be very tough, though.
“Ross County have had a very good start to the season, they are doing very well.”
Inverness’ victory at Caledonian Stadium last weekend ended Aberdeen’s run of eight straight Premiership victories this season.
After going 2-0 up courtesy of excellent strikes from Miles Storey and Ryan Christie, Fon Williams praised the spirited defensive showing that followed from the Highlanders.
The 28-year-old added: “I thought we dominated the first half and defended like heroes in a way.
“It felt unbelievable. The boys put in a fantastic shift from start to finish.”
