INVERNESS Caley Thistle striker James Keatings has emerged as a target for St Mirren as boss Jim Goodwin looks to bolster his attack for the Premiership relegation battle.

The Buddies are tenth in the standings and six points clear of bottom of the table Hearts heading into the second half of the season thanks to their 1-0 win over Kilmarnock a fortnight ago.

Goodwin will attempt to make moves in the January window to ensure his side can beat the drop and Keatings, who has five goals for Caley this term, is one option for the Irishman in the coming weeks.
