Football: Cash help on cards for Caley.

JOHN ROBERTSON could get cash to strengthen his Inverness Caley Thistle squad in January - if they're in with a chance of beating the drop.

The SPL new boys are bottom of the table after winning only one of their opening six games.

But director of football Graeme Bennett believes they still have a chance of staying in the top flight.

He said: 'I will definitely make a strong plea to the big players at the club to support the manager with extra funds for one or two new faces if we are still in about it come Christmas.

'You are basically talking about money to strengthen the football side and protect the business. That money would go straight into John Robertson's hands.

'We have been encouraged by performances even though we haven't always had the results.

'I know John doesn't like hard-luck stories. We turned in a great performance against Rangers on Sunday but what did we get? Nothing.

'But if we are fortunate to still be in the hunt come the transfer window, I hope the shareholders will re-visit the situation.

'I think we are short at the moment and a wee bit more spending might make all the difference.

'The only real difference I've noticed at this level is that other teams' forwards have been a bit better.

'That's not to criticise any individuals because strikers like Graham Bayne have a big future ahead. I just feel we need that bit extra guile.'
