Nick Ross: Wants Inverness to win the next two games

County closed the gap on Inverness to just two points at the weekend to set up a possible showdown at Dingwall on the last day of the season.

St Johnstone are also in the frame for a Europa League spot by finishing third in the Scottish Premier League, but Inverness are in the driving seat with consecutive home games against Motherwell and Dundee United.

And Ross wants Inverness to win the race for European football by taking maximum points from both games.

The midfielder told the Inverness Courier: "It's not so much avoiding that one (the Highland derby on the final day of the campaign). We just want to get Europe as soon as we can.

"If it comes down to that final game then so be it, but we're looking to get it before then.

"We've got two home games coming up and we're looking to win them both.

"It's two tough teams that we are going to be playing.

"Hopefully, we'll finally break that hoodoo Motherwell have had over us so far this season as this time we know more about them.

"I watched Dundee United playing Ross County and while they did OK, County played them well, so if we can just do the same then we'll be fine."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
