Cammy Kerr believes Inverness Caledonian Thistle are building up a run of form which can get them out of the relegation zone and secure their Championship status next season.

Caley Thistle went four games undefeated in the league with a 2-0 victory against Greenock Morton at Cappielow on Saturday.

It was also their first win in six matches in the Championship since beating Raith Rovers in Kirkcaldy at the end of January.

Inverness Caledonian Thistle remain in ninth place in the relegation zone, but they are only one point behind Queen’s Park in eighth and only two points adrift of Dunfermline Athletic in fifth.

Kerr says Caley Thistle’s victory against Greenock Morton was a performance which they had been building up to in recent weeks.

Now they are looking for that to continue when they face Airdrieonians on Saturday.

He said: “We know there has been something building, but there has been something missing, with missed penalties and missed chances.

“It is all part of the game and you just have to be ready and wait for the next chance.

“We do everything as we can as individuals and you will get the rewards eventually and we got that.”

Inverness Caledonian Thistle took the lead against Morton after 77 seconds when Billy McKay scored followed by Sean McAllister’s free kick doubling their advantage midway through the first half.

Caley Thistle’s victory ended their 16-game unbeaten run and Kerr says it was an excellent performance.

He said: “When you go to a stadium like that, playing against a team like Morton, you are under no illusion how difficult the game is going to be and they were on a 16-game unbeaten run.

“We were ready for the game and the gameplan we had to carry out, the boys were excellent.

“When you face a team that likes to play football and are quite expansive, you need to mix it with these teams.

“You need to defend and I thought we did that excellently.”

The win put Inverness back seven points clear of Arbroath at the bottom of the table.

Kerr says he is not trying to place too much concern on what other teams are doing.

He says as long as Caley Thistle keep picking up points, they won’t need to worry about anyone else.

He said: "I wouldn’t like to think that I’m one of those players that looks too much around.

“We just need to take each game as it comes and remain professional and go about our work every day and be the best they can.

“They are a great bunch of individuals who want to give their all, not just for the staff but for the club, it is a good football club and it is testament to the boys who are here.

“From top to bottom there is not too much between the teams, we like to think we can be a match against everyone.”
