Inverness boss Terry Butcher was delighted with the manner of his side's 4-1 win at Dundee, although he admitted the scoreline flattered his side.
Billy McKay struck twice, while Gary Warren and Andrew Shinnie also got on the scoresheet as Thistle extended their unbeaten run to six games and climbed to third in the SPL.
Butcher said: "Delightful - 4-1 looks a bit of a hammering, it certainly wasn't. It wasn't until we got the third goal that we could breathe a little bit easier. The fourth was the icing on the cake.
"It was a hell of a game - three goals in the first 10 minutes. We love Friday night football.
"I've got a fantastic group of players that work their socks off. Confidence is sky high and they're a credit to themselves because they work really hard.
"They've got resilience, they've got toughness and they can play. I thought they played some lovely stuff tonight.
"McKay was busy, he was brave, he was strong, and Andy Shinnie was irresistible. He played really well."
