JET helped send Aberdeen flying back into the top six but insists they still have far loftier ambitions.
The Dons swept St Mirren away at the weekend to move back into the top half.
Frontman Jay Emmanuel-Thomas knows his side have failed to hit the heights this season but reckons this could be time for lift-off and for them to check-in to the fight for a European return.
They are now looking to try to claw back Motherwell and Dundee United while also keeping Hibs, who have two games in hand, at bay.
The big striker said: “It is great and when you look at the table it gives you that motivation to keep pushing.
“We need to keep striving to get into that top four or three and keep going from there.”
The Dons made it back-to-back wins for the first time since the opening two league games of the season.
Taking maximum points from Livingston and St Mirren has put a whole different spin on Aberdeen’s league position.
Now they will be looking to make it a hat-trick of victories when they head to off-form St Johnstone.
Aberdeen hit the goal trail against St Mirren with Marley Watkins and Christian Ramirez getting doubles.
But JET knew it was only a matter of time before the Dons clicked into life.
He said: “I was always confident as we create a lot of chances. We don’t always take them but on Saturday we played some free-flowing football in the final third.
“It was a really strong performance from the boys. We started off on fire and managed to maintain that throughout the game.
“Conceding a goal was a bit of a letdown but we managed to react and get a third goal so all in all it was a good day.
“The boys have found a fluency and are producing good, attacking play. The conditions also played a part in not knowing if it was going long or short.
“Overall, we found our feet before St Mirren and it paid off for us.
“The defence was really solid and Joe Lewis made some great saves, which we needed in certain situations.
“We need to kick on and we want to keep these performances going.”
Emmanuel-Thomas came out firing in the opening few European games but saw his form dip and lost his place in the team. Now he’s managed to break back into the starting XI, he’s determined to stay there.
The former Arsenal youngster, speaking to RedTV, said: “The gaffer has things he wants to try and work on.
“The last couple of games I’ve got my opportunity and I have tried to take it.
“I am enjoying it. We might not have had the best time in recent weeks but we will pick up and start to push on.”Internet Explorer Channel Network
