WEDNESDAY’S goal hero Alex Fisher has urged Caley Thistle fans to turn out in their droves and be their 12th man against Motherwell tomorrow.

They need to win and hope Hamilton Accies drop points against Dundee, to leapfrog them into the final play-off place.

An escape that looked impossible a fortnight ago is now very do-able. Inverness are within touching distance of Accies, who have lost all four post-split fixtures.

The travelling support was in fine voice on Wednesday night and the club has made efforts to attract more along on Saturday, allowing under-16s in for free and permitting season-ticket holders to bring a friend for free.

All is set up for a bumper crowd, which Fisher hopes can be vital.

“It would be great if there was a big turnout on Saturday. It would be a 12th man,” said Fisher.

“It sounds like a cliche but it really does help.

“When you’re toiling towards the end and you here a ‘come on!’ from the supporters, it really does give you that extra push. I hope to see big numbers at the weekend.

“They were fantastic on Wednesday night and it was nice to give them an away victory, because they’ve had to wait a long time for one.”

It is all set up for one of the most nervy finales to a Premiership season in recent memory.

Wednesday’s performance was one of the best of the season – made possible by the lift the players got from Ross County’s result against Hamilton the night before.

“Iain Vigurs was at the game and giving us information as it was going on,” he said. “A couple of their efforts hit the post, so it looks like the Gods are on our side this week.

“We can only focus on our game and forget about everything else.

“We knew these last four games were pretty much all must-win – I don’t know if you can get any more must-win than this one. It’ll be the biggest game of my career.”
