Tom Walsh says he will not risk causing himself further injury by rushing back into action for tomorrow night's Highland derby despite being desperate to play.

Tom Walsh forced to come off injured with an early injury against Ross County in the Scottish Cup.

The winger, who has arguably been Caley Thistle's top player this season, has been ruled as hopeful by manager John Robertson to play against Ross County on Friday.

The 22-year-old was forced to come off injured after 19 minutes in the Scottish Cup fifth round replay against the Staggies last month after only recently returning from injury previously.

Walsh says he is desperate to get back into action, but also wants to be available for the rest of the season.

"I'm involved in small parts of training but I am still not 100 per cent," he said.

"It is frustrating because I am not far away, but things still are not right so we need to make sure I'm 100 per cent before I come back in.

"Hopefully come Thursday I can get back into full training but we need to see how things are and take it from there.

"I will definitely be in contention for the Partick Thistle game next week but I would say it is touch and go for Ross County."
