MORTON right-back Michael Doyle is hoping Inverness Caley Thistle take an offensive approach to today’s big Championship game up in the Highland capital.

Doyle reckons Jim Duffy’s side are at their best when teams try to play a pressing game against them.

Ton go into the game on the back of a six-game unbeaten streak in all competitions.

And defender Doyle, 26, is convinced the Jags will play right into their hands if they try to go for the jugular.

He told Tele Sport: “We’ve been really good away from home and I think that’s because of our organisation —plus teams need to come and press us.

“At the moment we’ve been on a really good run as well and we don’t give a lot of goals away.

“We are similar teams [Morton and Inverness] in that we’re hard to break down. But I think the advantage we might have is we’re away from home and they might have to come out a wee bit.

“Sometimes we have struggled to break down teams that like to sit in.

“At home, when you’re sitting in, the fans can get on your back, so we’re hoping that works in our favour.”

Doyle and co negotiate their third away fixture in the space of seven days today but the Ton star is relishing the chance to try to cement a spot in the end of season promotion play-offs.

He said: “With so many games to go you need to put as many points together as you can.

“Last season we stumbled over the line into fourth place.

“With nine games to go we were playing really well but I don’t think we won a game, so it’s about getting as many points on the board as possible now.

“Every club goes on a wee run and they start to put results together and I think this is our time.

“And if we can maintain this between now and the end of the season, we’ll be there or thereabouts.

“But we’re not taking anything for granted. You don’t know who’ll go on a run towards the end of the season and it’s about trying to get as many points as quickly as you can.”

Doyle, though, warned that it could be another energy-sapping 90 minutes of football for Duffy’s side — just like Tuesday night’s visit to Dumbarton.

On the night the players had to dig deep at the Your Radio Stadium on what was described as a ‘heavy’ surface.

Doyle thinks it could be a similar situation when they head north today.

He said: “I think it will be a close game up there. We watched them during the Irn Bru semi-final and their park looks a bit heavy. It can take its toll on the legs.

“In the last couple of games the manager’s made some changes, going 3-5-2, so he’s obviously working us on stuff, so it will be good to see what the manager does.”
