Kearney: Staying up would be St Mirren's best achievement
The Saints moved within a point of tenth placed Hamilton with a 2-0 win on Monday night.
St Mirren manager Oran Kearney believes avoiding relegation to the Championship would be a bigger achievement than winning a trophy this season.
The Saints moved within a point of tenth-placed Hamilton with a 2-0 Premiership win on Monday night.
Kyle McAllister and Kyle Magennis scored late goals in the win, meaning either side could finish in the relegation play-offs heading into Saturday's final round of fixtures.
And Kearney reckons avoiding the prospect of relegation would be the highlight of his career.
He said: "The first part of it is complete. We set everyone the challenge at the club at the start of the week to win two games of football and the first one was very important because it would send it into the final game of the season.
"This one has been the toughest because of the journey we've been on at the club for the season."
Kearney admitted that he would settle for avoiding the drop via the play-offs.
"I think mentality will be very important. We have always been a hunter and the group that's been trying to chase what's ahead of us and Saturday is exactly the same for us," he said.
"It's up to us to just go and do our job and get the three points.
"For a club like us, avoiding relegation would be even better than winning a trophy because of the journey we've been on.
"We're prepared to do it by the play-offs as well."
