Consecutive wins have seen Jim McIntyre’s side move up to 10th place but the manager knows there is still a massive job at hand to avoid relegation.
He told the Inverness Courier: “A couple of wins definitely brings that wee spring in the step and it is just important that you keep your feet on the ground and remember it is two games. People talk about consistency. Consistency, for me, is a run of seven or eight games.
“Two great results were a great shot in the arm but it’s back to work. It’s so important we try to get a positive result here against Dundee.”
The County boss will be without Ruben Palazuelos, who picked up a groin injury in training on Monday to join Darren Barr, Ben Frempah, Rocco Quinn and Richard Brittain in the treatment room.
Injured trio Gary Irvine, Paul Heffernan, Iain Davidson all miss out for top-six hopefuls Dundee but Luka Tankulic and Kostadin Gadzhalov could make the matchday squad; both will undergo late tests.
Dundee are unbeaten in eight league games since their Tayside derby loss on January 1, a run that has seen them climb into the top half of the table.
Paul Hartley does welcome Simon Ferry back to his squad for the trip north and the manager said: “Hopefully we make it nine on Saturday against Ross County but it will be tough because Jim McIntyre has really picked up his team in recent weeks.
“Our away record has been good because we have a certain way we play. We are eight unbeaten and the boys are determined to keep that going.”
