Foran: Inverness will love being underdogs in League Cup final

Inverness captain Richie Foran is looking forward to taking the 'underdog' tag into this weekend's Scottish League Cup final.

Caley meet Aberdeen in Sunday's final at Celtic Park in Glasgow and 33-year old midfielder Foran believes having less expectations to win that the Dons might have a positive effect on the Highlands club.

"We enjoy it. We love it. We've been underdogs all season. No one really gives us a chance at times, which we love. All we need is the lads in the dressing room and the manager getting behind us and that's enough for us," the former Carlisle United and Motherwell man said.

"Aberdeen will bring 40,000 supporters, but with that brings a lot of pressure on their players' backs, so it's going to be a tough game for them.

"We don't look at the past too much, even when we are winning games we always look to the future. It's in the back of our minds now, and as I said we're very confident going into Sunday's game."

Foran added that there was extra motivation coming up against Aberdeen who can be classed as a local rival to Inverness.

"They're sort of local rivals as well in Aberdeen. They're only a couple of hours down the road, so it's a massive game," he added.

"As I said there's a lot of pressure on the Aberdeen players with bringing that amount of support to the game.

"It's a game the Inverness players can go into really relaxed, look forward to the occasion and enjoy it."
