Back-to-back wins against Alloa Athletic and Dunfermline after securing a top-four spot helped build confidence at Inverness, despite not blowing either side away.

But it is that exact ability to win ugly that Ross County often demonstrated as they marched to the title that Kellacher believes has provided a launching pad to get past Ayr United.

“Our last two games before the Ayr game was probably more of a Ross County-type performance in terms of not playing well, but we ground out results.

“Tuesday night was the best we have played out of the last three games, so we’re taking a bit more momentum going into Saturday.

“We’ll take Saturday as it comes, but it was pleasing to see that we played two games before Ayr, and we ground them out while not playing well and won."
