STRIKER Billy Mckay says undefeated Inverness Caledonian Thistle have not reached their potential yet despite being top of the Championship, having won six out of seven matches so far.

The forward believes there is still more to come from the club and when it does, it will show in the scorelines.

Inverness returned to the top of the table last Saturday after coming from behind to defeat Queen of the South 2-1 at the Caledonian Stadium.

They are three points ahead of Kilmarnock, who were held to a 0-0 draw at third place Arbroath.

After starting the league campaign with four consecutive 1-0 wins, Mckay believes Inverness have started the season in cruise control, doing just enough to get the wins.

But he believes performances against Partick Thistle and Queen of the South show the squad can give it full throttle and when they do they will win more convincingly.

“Sometimes you don’t play well and you have to win games,” he said.

“We have done that this season when we’ve not been at our best but are still winning. We need to keep doing that.

“It shows the character that we have, and we won’t let it affect us if we go behind, I don’t think we were at our best last weekend, but came from being pegged back to win.

“Even when you are not at your best, it is important you get wins.

“I am looking forward to reaching the top level, which I don’t think we’ve done as a team.

“When we do, that I think we’ll be beating teams by greater margins in the scoreline.

“There is more to come, our best performance was the second half against Partick Thistle. We went behind and then we pulled it out, so it shows what we are capable of and a lot more.”
