Inverness Caledonian Thistle drew 0-0 with Arbroath.

The two teams played out a 0–0 draw at the Caledonian Stadium in a physical first leg encounter.

The winner will face either Dundee or St Johnstone in the play-off final.

Dodds was disappointed they couldn't take advantage of the chances they created.

But he feels they can get a result at Gayfield on Friday and progress to the play-off final.

"It was a physical game, but I don't mind that," he said.

"We go again on Friday. We had the better chances and it was like we wanted this first leg to be over. Let's get to Friday and see who wins it.

"I would have loved to have taken an advantage into the game but it's not to be, but we're in there and pitching.

"Have we got the players to win it? Absolutely.

"I am looking forward to it.

"We had the better chances. Logan Chalmers hit the bar in the first half. There was a great save from Derek Gaston from Austin Samuels. There was then a great block from Logan Chalmers when he was played through.

"Logan also had a curler just wide and Aaron Doran had a chance. We had really good chances to win the game. We missed them but we go again.

"Arbroath is a hard place to go and that's why they are where they are - deservedly so. We know what's at stake and what they will bring to the game. We'll be ready."
