Caley Thistle has now played five league games without a win and has fallen to third in the division, four points behind leaders Kilmarnock.

Last weekend Inverness lost their lead to fall 2-1 to the bottom of the Dunfermline Athletic table at Caledonian Stadium.

Midfielder McAlear, who is on loan from English Premiership club Norwich City this season, said the club had worked hard to ensure he made his way to Queen of the South tomorrow night and put his challenge back on the right way.

“We had a meeting about the last game and we know where we went wrong and we have to correct that and come back to victory,” said McAlear.

“We should have won more points than we have and this week is a chance to bounce back and make the fans happy again.

“We dominated the games and maybe it’s a lack of focus, playing in the wrong areas and not seeing the games.

“But it’s also due to a lack of goals.

“But we know how to solve this problem, now we have to show it and do it.”

McAlear said the first half against Dunfermline Athletic was a good performance from Inverness and deserved to be 1-0 up front.

But he said in the second half the team let the equalizer affect them which ultimately ended in defeat.

“The first 45 minutes against Dunfermline, we beat them,” said McAlear.

“We totally dominated the first half, but in the second half they scored and gained momentum, they had a boost and we know the mistakes we made. But it’s like a domino effect, once a first error occurs, there was a second and then a third and a fourth.

“Before you know it, the ball is in the net.

“But we have to solve these problems.”

Inverness heads to Palmerston tonight in search of their first league win since defeating Greenock Morton 2-0 on October 16.

Queen of the South has struggled this season, currently in ninth place and just two points above Dunfermline at the bottom of the table.

McAlear says he’s confident they can end their winless run at Dumfries.

“We can beat any team in this league and we know we’re good enough to go out there and beat Queen of the South.

“We’ll go through the tactical side towards the end of the week, and I’m confident we can go there and get three points.”

However, McAlear says it’s still too early to talk about the club’s promotion chances.

“We’re not even Christmas, towards the end of the season we’re going to take a look at it and see who’s up there.”
