Inverness out to impress - Butcher
Inverness manager Terry Butcher has warned his Scottish Premiership rivals that his team can be even more dangerous this season.
Caley Thistle scored 64 league goals last season but missed out on a European place after being pipped to third spot by St Johnstone when a depleted team lost to Ross County on the final day.
Butcher has lost key midfielders Owain Tudur Jones and Andrew Shinnie but his first team has remained largely intact.
And the Caley Thistle boss has supplemented his squad with 12 new signings ahead of their opening game against St Mirren at home.
He said: "What I like about this squad now is that on the bench in particular we have got players who can come on and make a difference, whereas before we didn't quite have that, with due respect to the lads what were here before.
"Now we have got athleticism and pace and players who are hungry to do well and impress.
"We may have to change the team round and I'm looking for players to come on and make a difference."
Butcher, whose side have had a free-scoring pre-season in Scotland before winning 1-0 at Charlton last weekend, added: "We will have a bit of a different style, we have lost Owain and Andy Shinnie.
"But we have adapted well, we have a good little system plus one or two others who can come in.
"From what we have done in pre-season, if we carry forward that spirit, passing and understanding, I think we will do well."
St Mirren opened last year's top-flight schedule with a 2-2 draw at home to Caley Thistle. This time, the fixture has been reversed but Danny Lennon will have little to go by from the side's three meetings last term after Caley boss Terry Butcher brought in 12 new players.
But the Paisley boss - who has opened talks with Newcastle about a loan move for England Under-19 striker Adam Campbell - is not concerned.
"We know what system Terry will go with," explained Lennon. "If you look at any manager who has been in the game for four or five years now, you know what their style is. You don't always have to look at their team.
"We have had them watched during pre-season and their new players have settled in well. We know what Inverness' strengths and weaknesses are and we'll try to exploit them."
