Goals from John Sutton, Iain Vigurs, Lionel Ainsworth and James McFadden secured a 4-0 victory over St Johnstone to cement their place as nearest challengers to Celtic at the top of the Premiership table.

The win capped a superb end to a five-week period which began with a 1-0 Scottish Cup defeat to Albion Rovers and a 5-0 home drubbing against Celtic.

Since then they have beaten Ross County, St Mirren, Aberdeen, Partick Thistle and St Johnstone, scoring 15 goals in the process and conceding only two.

And now McCall is looking for his troops to make it six in a row against Inverness in front of Sky Sports' cameras at Fir Park this weekend.

"I was delighted with the result yesterday," he told Sky Sports News. "When you think of where we were a few weeks ago the lads have been terrific and the character in the dressing room has pulled us through.

"We are playing some good stuff but we don't worry where we are at the moment in terms of our league position. The incredible thing at the moment is that we have 40 points at this stage of the season.

"Dundee United and Aberdeen deserve all the praise they are getting at the moment but we have been quite happy to fly under the radar.

"The bouncebackability of the squad has been terrific as we went through a couple of difficult times but everyone has rallied round and the spirit in the camp has been great.

"Naturally, the confidence is high but there is a long, long way to go. As I said at the beginning of the season if we can manage to finish above Aberdeen then we'll certainly be in a European spot as I think they are the strongest team behind Celtic.

"The players are enjoying what we are trying to do at the moment. They have to because you never know what is around the corner. What they do do is work hard for each other and now we are beginning to see the flair and fluency coming in our football which is great."

"We have had a terriric run over the festive period and it would be good to finish it off with victory over Inverness this weekend. We are at home and as always at home we believe we can beat anyone, while giving Inverness all the respect they deserve.

"There is a buzz about the place at the moment and everyone is just desperate for the next game."

You can see if Stuart McCall's boys can make it six in a row live on Sky Sports 1 from 12.45pm this Saturday

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
