Determined Buchanan’s got his eyes on the prize
St Mirren defender Gregor Buchanan insists Saints’ fast start to the season could prove key to their success.
The ex-Dumbarton man has played a key role in the side’s winning run in the league, which sees them sitting top of the table ahead of this weekend.
Another victory, against his former club, would confirm their place at the summit after the first quarter of fixtures.
And Buchanan reckons it is key for the Buddies to continue on the right track if they are to meet the goals set out to them by gaffer Jack Ross.
He said: “It’s important to set targets because it gives you something to work towards.
“If we win on Saturday and are sitting top of the league, we’ll be quite happy.
“We’ll go on from there and work towards the next quarter.
“Brechin showed how difficult the league is when they came to our place and made it very difficult for us to win the game.
“The Championship has been like that for years and there’s an element of everybody can beat everybody.
“It’s important to get as many points on the board as quick as possible.
“We need to keep the run going while we have it and long may it continue.”
