Steve Lomas is targeting a spot in Europe next season after St Johnstone leapt to fourth on the Scottish Premier League table on Monday night.
The Saints beat Hibernian 3-1 at Easter Road, thanks to a Rowan Vine double, and Lomas now has his sights set on another shot at European football following Europa League qualifiers at the beginning of the season.
"We really enjoyed our European adventure (last summer in Europa League qualifying) and we would love to get back there but it's so tight this year and we've got a lot of tough games," he said.
"But I did say to the lads that we've got eight games and that's our cup run.
"What can we do? Treat each game as a cup final and see where it takes us."
