Inverness Caledonian Thistle interim manager Neil McCann says they made a powerful statement in their 4-1 victory at Greenock Morton.

A dominant performance at Cappielow saw Inverness produce their best performance of the season to move back into the play-offs.

After a dismal run of one win in 13 games, Caley Thistle are a team rejuvenated winning their last six matches in all competitions.

But McCann says Tuesday night’s win was their biggest statement that they are contenders for promotion this season.

“Everyone wants to get on the pitch,” he said.

“All in all, it’s been going great for us and it’s another big win for the club.

“It’s a huge game now for the club on Saturday, and one as a group we’re looking forward to.

“It’s really important to get a bit of traction going into the business end of the season.”

He added: “Scrapping wins is great, but when you’re going in with a real positive head of steam and a good feeling about the group, that’s really powerful.

“Every team is capable of beating each other, so if we’re off it, we know it’ll be tough. But if we’re on it, we give ourselves a great chance of winning.”

McCann says he is also sensing the belief in his squad that they can finish in the top four.

He says the club are now showing the strength in depth to make it happen.

“We knew it would be a difficult game.

“We said at half time they would be direct and throw things at us and we had to deal with it.

“The goals that we scored were quite exceptional. We’re now starting to
really believe as a group we’re going to take a bit of stopping.

“We look difficult to score against, but ultimately we carry a real threat when we’ve got the ball.

“It’s a nice mix to get.

“That’s six wins on the bounce. I’ve got a group of players who are desperate to get on the pitch now.”
