St Johnstone were not scoring the goals their play deserved for most of the season but that has now changed with eight in their last three games.
And after the 3-1 win at Hibs that saw his team go fourth, manager Steve Lomas admitting he would love another go at European football.
The Perth club faced Eskisehirspor in a Europa League tie in July and Lomas is keen to remain in the hunt for a European spot.
He said: “We really enjoyed our European adventure and we would love to get back there,
“But it’s so tight and we’ve got a lot of tough games, starting with Ross County on Saturday.
“I said to the lads the remaining league games are our cup run.”
Rowan Vine grabbed a double and Patrick Cregg was also on the scoresheet, before Leigh Griffiths pulled a goal back late on.
Lomas added: “It was very good from start to finish. We’ve had a few games this season where we’ve had good performances and sometimes haven’t got what we deserved.
“But I thought we thoroughly deserved it. And if it had been by two or three more, there probably couldn’t have been much complaint.”
The scoreline could have been more comfortable had Steven MacLean converted from the penalty spot but he was denied by Ben Williams.
Asked if Vine, who was chasing a hat-trick, fancied the spot-kick, Lomas said: “He probably did. But we decided that once the penalty-taker was decided before the game, we would stick to it no matter what the situation was.”
St Johnstone U/20 face Hearts at McDiarmid tonight at 7pm.
