The Spiders host Inverness Caledonian Thistle for the first time in 25 years as Billy Dodds’ side make the journey south for this evening’s cinch Championship clash. You have to go back to 8 March 1997 for Caley Thistle’s last visit south to face Queen’s in what was then, Scottish Division Three, with both clubs having come a long way since then.
This will be the second meeting of the sides in the league this season with the spoils having been shared in an opening day 1-1 draw in Inverness, and ahead of the game, Owen Coyle gave his thoughts to the club media team.
Owen said: “Once again it’s one we are all looking forward to. We know we played well last week but we obviously want to be playing well and winning at the same time. The building and development of this squad is very much an ongoing process but while we do that we do want to be a team that is winning games and entertaining in the right manner as well. We did part of that last week but didn’t get the result to go with it. If we continue to play well we will win games.”
“Last week was only the third game this season that we have failed to score in and I’m sure if we were to play that game again you’d be looking for us to score three or four given the quality of chances that we created. We know we have boys throughout the team who can contribute with goals and we have this week, spoken about the importance of being more clinical and more ruthless when we create these chances. We know that when we do that, it will lead to winning matches.”
“We know that in Inverness Caley Thistle we will be up against very good opponents and we are under no illusions as to how difficult a game it will be. We have a number of players who will be missing, as have Inverness to be fair to them. What that does is present the opportunity for others to come into both the starting eleven and the squad and we will be looking for those boys to show what they can do and to show that they want to retain those spots. Young Cammy Bruce and Lennon Connolly will come into the squad, having trained very well, and it will be good for these boys to be in amongst it. There will also be opportunities for others to step into the starting eleven and stake their claim for a regular place.”
