Inverness boss Hughes still has Europe in his sights

Inverness manager John Hughes is still eyeing a spot in the Europa League next season.

Caley were beaten 2-0 by Motherwell at Fir Park on Wednesday night which saw them fall to fifth spot on the Scottish Premiership table.

Hughes' side have not won in three league outings, making it a winless run of five in all competitions, but the gaffer is not throwing in the towel as they target Aberdeen and the 'Well who are nine points ahead in second and third respectively.

"We need to get back to keeping clean-sheets - that's what we pride ourselves on," he said.

"If we do that, with 10 games remaining, the challenge is to try to get Europe.

"To do that, we need to get back to winning football matches. By hook or by crook, we have to win a football match.

"I would never bet against those guys in that dressing room doing it. That's for sure."

Inverness will be looking to bridge the gap on the Dons and the Steelmen when they host ninth-placed Partick Thistle on Saturday.
