Nathan Shaw insists Inverness Caledonian Thistle are good enough to keep their unbeaten Championship run going – with confidence growing with every passing week under Duncan Ferguson.

The Caley Jags have reached six games without defeat under the stewardship of Everton legend Ferguson, who has won three and drawn three, most recently a 1-1 tie away at Dunfermline.

Shaw sees no reason why that run cannot continue in the coming weeks, with morale and the fluency of ICT’s attacking play getting better all the time.

“There’s no reason we can’t keep it going and keep climbing up the table,” Shaw stressed.

“There’s definitely confidence in the group at the minute.

“When we’ve not been beaten that helps massively, but especially in the final third our passing is looking good and we’re creating opportunities from that.

“I think the manager has made a massive impact to be fair – we used to get the ball wide a lot and cross into the box, and now we want to work our way in there and create opportunities by getting the ball down and playing.

“We are getting the ball to our exciting players on the pitch and seeing what they can do, so the players in forward positions have freedom to unlock the door and create chances for the team.

“We’ve just got to keep going, and hopefully results will come to fire the team up the table.”

At Dunfermline, ICT could count themselves lucky at times as their hosts hit the woodwork a total of eight times.

“It was a crazy game,” Shaw admitted.

“We could say luck was on our side, but I think it was a solid performance against a good team in this league. To concede late on is gutting, because the boys gave everything out there.”
