Ross County defender Andy Boyle remains uncertain over what his future holds but the Irishman is determined to cap his loan spell at Dingwall with a league and cup double.
Boyle joined the Staggies on a temporary deal from English second-tier side Preston North End in January, having spent the first half of the season on loan with Premiership side Dundee where he made 13 appearances.
The 28-year-old netted the winner in Tuesday’s 2-1 Highland derby victory over Inverness, which puts County five points clear of second placed Dundee United, who the Staggies host in a vital encounter tomorrow night.
Having already helped County win the IRN-BRU Cup courtesy of last month’s victory over Connah’s Quay Nomads, Boyle is hungry for more silverware.
Boyle, who is out of contract with Preston in the summer, said: “I have really enjoyed it. Since I came in January everyone around the club has been really helpful.
“It’s a great bunch of lads. When you are winning games and competing at the top of the league it’s quite enjoyable, thankfully we have been doing that so far.
“As a player you would much rather the pressure of chasing a title than fighting for your lives. I have really enjoyed it so far, it has been great, and we just want to get it over the line.
“I have come here and I basically want to play games and perform to the best of my ability. I will wait and see what happens in the summer.
“After coming up, we’ve already got the IRN-BRU Cup and to win a league medal would be a good couple of months for me.”
County’s victory puts the pressure back on United, who have threatened a late title push in recent weeks, with Boyle hoping to help his side open up an eight-point gap over Robbie Neilson’s men.
He added: “All along since I have been here we have basically said we can only focus on ourselves and pick up results. We have put ourselves in a good position. The games like Friday night are the games you want to play in as players.
“It’s a quick turnaround so we will have to dust ourselves down and get ready to go.”
County’s victory followed back-to-back league defeats, and Boyle feels Stuart Kettlewell and Steven Ferguson’s men have shown resilience in their pursuit of the title, adding: “The main thing was the result and bouncing back from Saturday.
“It wasn’t pretty at times and the conditions didn’t help but it’s a massive three points.”
