Saints striker Steven Thompson is being tipped to hit 20 goals before the season is over.
The former Scotland star has already bagged 14 goals during the 2012/13 campaign and is only two short of last season’s tally of 16.
And Buddies boss Danny Lennon is confident there are more goals to come from Thommo.
He said: “I would certainly expect Steven to pass his total from last season and maybe reach 20.
“I believe that, with the way we like to play, we’ll always create opportunities for our strikers.
“Steven is in fine form at this minute in time and long may that continue.”
Lennon has also been impressed by 34-year-old Thompson’s fitness levels.
He added: “I think Steven is the fittest I have ever seen him.
“That was a concern for us at the beginning of the season, in terms of how he would cope with the amount of games we had to play, but he has handled it fantastically well.
“It’s not just down to our medical staff, I think it’s a wee bit of everything.”
