Falkirk boss John Hughes wants his team to emulate their seventh-placed finish of last term.

The Bairns finally put their first points on the board last weekend to lift themselves off the foot of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.

And Hughes is hopeful a victory against St Mirren this weekend.

"I've got a lot of time for St Mirren and the greatest of respect for (manager) Gus MacPherson and (assistant) Andy Millen. I know how hard they work and I know it's always a hard place to go.

"But now that we've got a win behind us it would be nice if we could go and pick up another three points on Saturday.

"Wins don't come easy in the SPL but we'll be going there to win the match.

"Outside Celtic and Rangers everybody is capable of beating everybody else in the SPL.

"I would like to think we can go and pick up wins to go and emulate what we did last year. Why not us? Why not have that desire and commitment to try to do that?

"To do that we would be punching above our weight and I keep trying to say that to the supporters.

"You can't win every week but it's important we keep our spirit.

"It will be like that all season but it would be nice to go and get another three points on the board.

"It's a big week for the club, if we could pick up three points on Saturday it would hopefully take us into the cup tie on Tuesday in confident mood."
