“I’ve turned 34 now but my fitness is not a problem and I am still banging in goals, so I won’t be taking my foot off the pedal.
“Last season was incredible for me because of the number of goals I scored and that put a real shine on things.
“I don’t see why I can’t beat last season’s tally - we’ll see what happens.”
Former Scotland striker Thompson has been in fine form in recent weeks, scoring four goals in St Mirren’s last four outings.
His performances also helped the Buddies gain eight points out of a possible 12 over the festive season.
And, as he recharges his batteries during the SPL’s short winter break, Thommo admits Saints will need to show that sort of consistency in the months to come if they are to achieve their dream of a top six finish.
He added: “We had been on a really poor run, when we lost six games in a row, and it was difficult during that spell.
“There’s no doubt that being on that kind of run puts pressure on you but we turned things around in recent weeks.
“It’s vital that we don’t get into the habit of winning one or two games and then start losing again.
“We should be competing higher up the table than we are, so there’s still a lot to do to get there.
“The main thing is that we’re heading in the right direction and, with everyone on their game, we can hopefully string together a long run of good results.”
