Scott Paterson reckons Inverness Caley will have recovered from cup final loss

I am sure they will still be disappointed at losing out on penalties in the League Cup final against Aberdeen, but they have still got a lot to play for as they look to finish in the top six, so we know it will be a really hard game for us.

While they did not get the result they wanted at Parkhead, they will take confidence from the fact that they got to the final and it will spur them on as they look to kick on in the Premiership now.

They have had a lot of games recently, hosting Hibs a few days before the final and playing Motherwell last night, but I don't think that gives us any great advantage.

Players would rather play than train. When you have as many matches, your training sessions then really just become a time for recovery.

I think it is probably beneficial to them to have a run of games and they have got a big enough squad to deal with it.

We are in a confident mood heading up there, and hopefully we can come back down the road with another three points.
