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."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
