Danny Lennon believes a top-six finish in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League is within St Mirren's grasp.
The Buddies, seven points adrift of fourth place, take bottom club Dundee on Wednesday evening looking for all three points to boost their top-six ambitions.
The PSL is proving to be a very competitive league with many clubs bunched together. Lennon expects that there will be a few "twists and turns" before the season draws to a close.
The Buddies boss said: "This game is of huge importance to us because we still have a strong desire to keep chapping at the door for the top six.
"This is our game over all the other teams in the league and I believe we are still capable of fighting for three of the top-six slots.
"Only Celtic, Motherwell and Inverness are guaranteed to be in the top six and the rest is up for grabs.
"There are plenty of twists and turns and a win would certainly keep us in there with a realistic shout.
"But it's totally down to us and we need to get the wins on the board."
