Caley Thistle midfielder Andrea Mbuyi-Mutombo is ready for the seven games which will shape the club’s season.
Caley Thistle begin a hectic spell of seven matches in the next 21 days, starting with today’s trip to Dens Park to face Dundee.
With Inverness pushing for a top six place and in the quarter-finals of the Scottish Cup, it is all to play for and Mutombo is confident his club can handle the workload.
He said: “We are going to need everyone as we have a lot of games coming and they will all be important for the club.
“I’ve never played so many games in a short space of time before coming here, but I’m always happy to play games rather than train so I won’t complain.
“I’ve struggled with injuries since coming here but I’m fit again now and I hope to finish the season strongly as I’ve enjoyed my time here.”
Mutombo is out of contract in the summer, but shied away from discussing his future, insisting his focus is solely on ensuring this campaign can be another memorable one for the Highlanders.
He said: “I haven’t given next season any thought, I’m just focusing on this one and there is a lot to play for. We are the Scottish Cup holders and to win it twice in a row would be magic.
“For the chairman, manager and supporters, it would be incredible to win it again.”
Caley Jags head to Dens in confident mood following a run of just two defeats in their last 12 matches.
The most recent defeat came at Parkhead last weekend when Inverness were punished for failing to convert first-half chances.
Mutombo knows his side cannot afford to be so wasteful in front of goal today against Paul Hartley’s team, who are among their rivals for a top six berth.
The 25-year-old Congo international said: “I don’t look at other teams, I look at us, and I believe we are playing well just now. We lost last week but we played well and we’re in good shape.
“That’s the lesson for playing Dundee. We have to score the first goal and if we do that it will be a different game. If we do that we will win the game.”
Caley Jags midfielder Danny Williams returns to the squad after missing last week’s defeat at Celtic due to a family bereavement.
