Championship more competitive than ever


Caley Thistle boss Billy Dodds believes the Scottish Premiership promises to be just as competitive as last season.

With three points separating the top four, Dodds is preparing for another Test campaign for his team.

He said: “It’s so difficult and demanding and every manager will say the same thing.

“Anyone can beat anyone. That’s how it is – if you’re not there, you lose points.

“This league tests you and asks you questions every week, as a group of players and as coaches.

“Even if you know the other team perfectly, you know that if you mess up even slightly, the other team will benefit, even if you beat them three times before.

“It’s such a strange and difficult league.

“You want these races to happen as soon as possible, like we did last year – and I feel like we’ve done that for the last three or four weeks.”

Dodds wants Somerset win after two draws last season

Dodds will take his Inverness side to Ayr United on Saturday in a bid to extend their unbeaten run at Somerset Park to four matches.

Caley Jags led both away games before having to settle for a point in two 2-2 draws at Somerset Park and the Inverness manager will hope his side can produce a performance that deserves the three points this time around. opportunity.

He said: “It has been mixed ground for me with Inverness.

“We played some of our best football and ended up losing leads.

“I would like us to get ahead to see the game.”

Ayrshire back for Caley Jags boss

For Dodds, who grew up in New Cumnock, East Ayrshire, tomorrow’s trip represents a homecoming of sorts and he expects a serious test from second-place Lee Bullen.

Dodds said: “I’ve always loved (Somerset). I was a young boy at the Ayr United Boys Club. We trained all the time in Ayr, sometimes at the stadium.

“I’m an Ayrshire boy and it’s the old tradition. It’s an old-school pitch and a good day for the fans.

“Ayr will have fair support there given what they have done this season.

“I love going home to where I grew up and I also love the challenge.

“When Lee arrived, I could see their identity and the type of players he wants to play.

They have an attacking spirit, 4-4-2 most weeks, and that has brought them rewards. It is not surprising to see them there.
