Caley Thistle need to go on a run, says manager John Robertson
MANAGER John Robertson says Caley Thistle’s ability to string a run of wins together will decide if they are good enough to challenge for the Championship title.
His team recorded their second win in a row when they won 2–0 against Alloa Athletic at the Indodrill Stadium on Saturday.
Their 1–0 home win against Dundee seven days previously followed a run of only one win in five games, which saw them fall off the pace in the title race.
However, their last two victories has seen Inverness close the gap on leaders Dundee United to seven points.
With three of their next four games at the Caledonian Stadium, including Saturday’s against Ayr United, Robertson says it is vital they start racking up the wins.
“Our problem this season is that we have not put a run together,” said Robertson.
“If you look at Dundee United and Ayr they have managed to put five straight victories together.
“That is something that we need to do to get ourselves back in there.
“But I said to the lads find a way to keep winning games,pushing up the table and see where that takes us.
“In this league it is foolish to look too far forward.”
Robertson said he was pleased with the showing from his team at Alloa in an end-to-end encounter.
“There was lots of good quality performances from both teams up front, midfield and defence.
“It was one of those rare games where you are praising the opposition’s football and much as your own.”
