De­ter­mined Buchanan’s got his eyes on the prize

Paisley Daily Express - - A Newlandscape -

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.”
