Wright back from ban
Frazer Wright returns from suspension for Kilmarnock's Clydesdale Bank Premier League clash with Inverness at Rugby Park.
The Killie defender missed the defeat against Hibernian after being sent off in the defeat by Dundee United in the previous game.
Long-term injury absentees James Dayton and Alan Combe are still out.
Kilmarnock skipper Craig Bryson is looking for the Ayrshire side to turn pretty football into points sooner rather later.
The Rugby Park club have won plaudits this season for their performances under Mixu Paatelainen who took over as boss in the summer.
However, after eight games they find themselves with just seven points, two above bottom side St Mirren.
Bryson told Press Association Sport that everything is enjoyable at Rugby Park this season apart from the points tally
"We are playing a totally different formation," the midfielder said.
"I don't think a lot of the boys have played it before.
"We are trying to pass from the back instead of playing the long ball and everyone wants to get on the ball.
"I think the fans are enjoying it a lot more and I think the players are as well,
"It's good to watch but we are not getting the results just now because of sloppy goals and it kills you a bit.
"We have given away sloppy goals but that's up to us to cut it out and hopefully we can do that in the coming weeks and build on that.
"We have been playing well in every game apart from the first half against Hamilton.
"We are scoring quite a few so if we keep it tight at the back then we will be okay."
Bryson insists Terry Butcher's Caley side, who have moved almost unnoticed into fourth place in the table, can provide inspiration for Killie.
"It gives us hope," he said.
"We knew when they came up from the First Division that they were a good team.
"They are a big strong team who work hard and they can cause teams in this league - a lot of problems - and the results have shown that.
"Our performances have maybe matched a team in fourth place but we just haven't got the results."
Gil Blumenshtein has been added to Inverness' injury list.
The Israeli midfielder has been ruled out for two weeks with a hamstring problem.
David Proctor (hamstring), Chris Innes (hamstring), Lee Cox (ankle) and Kenny Gillet (knee) were already sidelined for the Highlanders.
Kevin McCann is determined to make up for lost time and prove his injury troubles are firmly in the past for Inverness.
The defender was on a high when he netted a superb goal to set the Highlanders on their way to a dramatic 4-0 win over Dundee United in August.
But he suffered a setback the following week after sustaining a groin injury that would sideline him until last week's comeback against St Johnstone.
Now fully fit, McCann admits he probably had a part to play in finding himself out of action for several weeks.
He said: "It was really frustrating. I thought I had put it all behind me but it's one of those things.
"I put myself out there and push myself to the limit and sometimes you can push your body too far and you pick up wee things.
"But I always do that, I always try my best and that's what I'm always aiming to do.
"It was really disappointing because I was on a high coming off the back of the Dundee United performance with the rest of the boys.
"It was a really good team performance that day and I was hoping to kick on from there. To pick up that injury was really disappointing to be honest.
"For the week after I was really down but I managed to pick myself up and now that I'm back involved with the team I need to kick on and hopefully progress."
Killie taste bitter Inverness defeat
Kilmarnock were left with a sense of injustice as they slumped to a third straight Clydesdale Bank Premier League defeat, with Inverness winning 2-1 at Rugby Park.
The visitors took a 42nd-minute lead through Adam Rooney's penalty, the award disputed by Kilmarnock amid claims Momo Sissoko's contact on Russell Duncan was minimal.
Kilmarnock dominated the start of the second half but Johnny Hayes caught Frazer Wright in possession and finished well to make it 2-0 in the 66th minute.
That strike against the run of play followed Kilmarnock being denied a spot-kick of their own when Graeme Shinnie appeared to handle inside the area.
Rui Miguel pulled a 75th-minute goal back to keep Kilmarnock in contention until the end with his first for the club, but Inverness held firm in the closing stages.
The result means Inverness remain undefeated away from home in the SPL this term.
Wright was restored to the Kilmarnock team after suspension after being red-carded in the home defeat to Dundee United, but returned to replace Harry Forrester from the side that also lost to Hibernian.
Veteran midfielder Duncan was recalled by Inverness after being left on the bench for last week's 1-1 draw with St Johnstone, while a hamstring injury ruled out Gil Blumenshtein.
Johnny Hayes has impressed for Inverness this term from the right wing and was soon in the action, crossing for Duncan to fire just wide from the edge of the area.
Kilmarnock responded with a fluid move started by Alexei Eremenko, whose angled pass released Liam Kelly who then played in Jamie Hamill for a low shot well-saved by Ryan Esson.
The home team might have taken the lead on 16 minutes, but after Inverness failed to clear Eremenko's corner, Conor Sammon miskicked badly when a shooting chance presented itself.
Esson needed to be alert again to punch the ball away to safety from the head of David Silva as the Kilmarnock midfielder tried to convert Liam Kelly's high cross.
In what was developing into a disappointing half, neither side were able to keep possession with too many aimless balls upfield a feature of proceedings.
Grant Munro collected the first booking of the game on 40 minutes for hauling down Kelly, but the resulting free-kick from Eremenko drifted wide without troubling Esson.
The match needed something to bring it alive and it came with the controversial award of a penalty in the 42nd minute for a Sissoko challenge on Duncan.
Any contact looked minimal and the stadium erupted into jeers at referee Euan Norris's decision to give a spot-kick, converted neatly by Rooney.
Sissoko continued his protests at the restart and was eventually yellow-carded for dissent, but his argument that Duncan had made a lot of very little looked sound.
Kilmarnock could have levelled before the break, but after good work from Eremenko and Hamill on the right, Manuel Pascali headed an inviting chance over.
Kilmarnock missed another fine opportunity a minute into the second half, Eremenko's clever ball over the top putting Sammon clean through, but his lobbed effort bounced wide after defeating Esson.
An unimpressed Eremenko decided the best option was to go for goal himself with Kilmarnock's next attempt, but while he struck his 25-yard shot powerfully it fizzed wide of the mark.
Kilmarnock looked as if they had a goal in them, but their finishing continued to be wasteful.
First Ben Gordon missed his kick from another Eremenko pass, then Craig Bryson screwed an effort wide when well-placed.
Eremenko won a free-kick on the left-hand edge of the penalty area in the 58th minute and took it himself, swerving his strike against the outside of the post.
Kilmarnock had a penalty claim rejected on the hour mark when Gordon's low cross appeared to hit Graeme Shinnie's hand, but nothing was given and the Inverness player stayed calm to clear Sammon's follow-up goal attempt off the line.
Inverness had done little more than absorb pressure in the second half, but doubled their lead on 66 minutes when Hayes seized on some slack play from Wright to dart beyond him and finish confidently.
Kilmarnock were not done yet, however, and on 75 minutes they had a goal back, Forrester's cross from the right met by a diving header by fellow substitute Miguel to spark hopes of a comeback.
Forrester, on-loan from Aston Villa, was looking a threat and it needed a smart block from Munro to deny him in the 79th minute as Inverness were again forced to retreat.
