Inverness manager Terry Butcher is confident his players will not slack off after securing the club's first top-six finish.

Caley Thistle booked their place in the top half of the SPL with a 2-1 victory over Ross County and can now clinch a European slot if they maintain third place.

Butcher said: "There's a big danger of players switching off now knowing we have achieved that (top six) but I don't sense that with these players.

"Every week they drive themselves on and we drive them on, and they seem to pull some energy levels and some skill, guts and grit from somewhere. They have just been brilliant.

"I feel a lot of pressure has been taken off and the players do too.

"You see them enjoying things and we keep looking at the SPL table and seeing ourselves up there and it's brilliant.

"Hopefully we'll now see a lot more freedom and expression from the players and they enjoy it even more."
