Hibernian striker Derek Riordan is setting himself the target of netting 100 SPL goals by the end of the season.
Riordan's winner in Tuesday's 2-1 win over strugglers Hamilton means he has now plundered 94 top-flight goals, making him the SPL's third highest scorer of all time.
However, Riordan, who had a spell with Celtic, hopes to net another six between now and the summer, meaning he will have amassed a whopping 100 goals.
Hibs tackle St Johnstone on Saturday and the league's in-form side will be looking for the three-point haul that could see them climb as high as seventh in the table.
"I'd love to hit 100 SPL goals for Hibernian by the end of the season. I wasn't aware that I'm now third on the SPL all-time top scorers' list with the goal, but I do know that now and that's good," he told the club's official website.
"I want to score as many goals as I can. I can have the best game of my life, but if I don't score then I'm not happy - I prefer scoring.
"There's no reason why we can't go to St Johnstone and win on Saturday; confidence is high, but it's a tough place to go.
"We just have to concentrate to try to get into that top six and have a final Edinburgh derby."
