Cove Rangers manager John Sheran hailed his team as “excellent” after their 4-0 win at Clachnacuddin.
Mitch Megginson got a brace while Ryan Strachan and Jamie Masson were also on target for the Aberdeen outfit in Inverness.
The victory gives Cove 11 wins out of 12 in all competitions this season and sees them sit at the top of the Highland League table with 22 points from 24.
Boss Sheran was delighted with their triumph in Inverness. He said: “I thought the performance was excellent, we dominated from the start of the game right to the finish, so we couldn’t really ask for a much better performance.
“We’ve had one or two sluggish first halves of late but today we came out of the blocks and were right at it from the start.
“That is probably the best result I can remember having up at Clach, and it potentially could have been more than four, so we’re really happy.”
Sheran revealed there is a feelgood factor in the Cove dressing room at the moment and that confidence among the players could not be higher.
He added: “We are enjoying things just now, the lads are playing some good stuff and it’s enjoyable when you are winning. But we know there is danger around the corner if you take your foot off the gas, so we just have to keep the pedal down and keep going.
“I don’t think confidence could be much higher and you can see by the way they are playing that the players are confident.
“We have a tough week this week, we’ve been up at Inverness, then we play Turriff on Wednesday night and then we are up at Nairn on Saturday, so it was good to get it off to a good start.”
Last season Cove lost the title to Buckie Thistle on goal difference, but so far this term they have racked up 34 goals in eight league matches and Sheran admitted he had asked his squad to be more clinical this term.
“We have certainly asked the players to be a bit more ruthless in front of goal and so far they have tended to do that,” he said.
“We are still just focusing on winning the games, you would be happy if you won them all 2-1 as long as you ended up winning.”
Sheran also praised striker Megginson after his double.
He said: “He had a couple of attempts before he scored and he is someone who is always liable to pop up with a goal for us.
“He has played at a higher level, so he knows what he should be doing – it’s just about trying to keep him fully focused on doing the right things all the time, and he played well against Clach.”
