The Canadian midfielder starred in the 2–0 win over Alloa Athletic which moved Caley Thistle second.

The victory has seen Inverness reduce the gap withleaders Dundee United to seven points.

Trafford (27) says the team’s main goal at the start of the season was to win the league. He believes that having got their season back on track that they can meet that aim.

“We want to win the league,” said Trafford.

“Our goal at the start of the year was not to make the play-offs.

“Our goal is to win the league.

“Even though we are still seven points back, in our last game against Alloa we had a chance to go top of the league.Within what feels like a split second we ended 10 points behind them.”

“The league can change real quick, but our eye is still on Dundee United.

“But we are only worrying about one game at a time, growing confidence and getting wins.”

Trafford says the team were pleased with the performance at Alloa which followed their victory against Dundee.

“Against Dundee we showed we can beat the big teams. Sometimes you can take your foot off the gas playing a lower team.

“But there are no easy teams in this league. We give respect to everyone and did what we had to do.”

Trafford has shone in the games against Dundee and Alloa and says he is growing in confidence.

“It has been a while since I have had confidence.

“When you lack confidence, the fans and the people on the outside don’t see it.

“It’s unbelievable how it can affect you.

“So it is massive for me to get this run of games and I am showing what I’m capable of doing.”
