GCA - Youth Club will be looking to recover from their shock outright loss when they come up against cross town rivals Swifts/Great Western at Central Park tomorrow.
Tomorrow sees day one of the final round of home and away A grade Grampians Cricket Association matches take place and although the top four is set in stone, there will still be a battle between these old foes.
The Clubbers batting confidence took a hit last round and if they are to make a competitive score against the Combine, Steve Le Gassick, Jamie Solyom, Matt Delzotto and Tim Seymour need to fire.
Although they face another challenge up against in-form Combine bowlers with Jackson Dark, Marc Brilliant, Jamie Bach and Damien Scott spearheading the attack.
Meanwhile Swifts/Great Western's batsmen have been in good form of late, so it will be up to Clubbers bowlers Jamie Solyom, Steve Le Gassick, Jack Kelly and Cam Kimber to prevent the likes of Travis Nicholson, Gary Ranton, Rick Peters and Sam Cocks from making a competitive score.
Buangor have the daunting task of travelling to tackle Tatyoon in their two day encounter.
Fresh from confidence boosting wins over top three teams Youth Club and Swifts/Great Western, Tatyoon are in rare form in the lead up to this year's finals series.
Tim McDougall and Julian Sambell claimed eight wickets each last round and it will up to Buangor's top order batsmen Shaun Allen, Harry Ganley, Jack Fraser and Jarred McGuiness to stop the pair in their tracks.
Tatyoon's batsmen are no slouches either.
Ash Maconachie, Darren Beer, Jarred Blandford and Andrew Ward all have the ability to make formidable scores and put games out of the opponent's reach.
Buangor are currently sitting in fourth position on the Association ladder and must show this round they are worthy of a place in this year's finals.
Buangor bowler, Ben Hargreaves, has been quiet in his previous couple of matches and needs to take much needed wickets with support to come from Jim Fraser, Jack Ganley and Harry Ganley.
Pomonal would want to end their A grade season on a high with a competitive showing against Aradale.
Last time these teams played each other it was in round three in a one day match, which Pomonal won.
Pomonal's batting let them down again last week against St Andrews and the top order consisting of Nick Maddison and David Robinson cannot make runs alone.
If Pomonal bat first, they will be relying on the middle order which means Alex Mallligan, Lynden Brewis and Lachie Green need to step up and contribute.
Aradale are coming off a bye last round and looking to redeem some pride after a tough season.
Brent Tate, Ryan Bertram, John Butler and Matthew Stasse will be eyeing off early wickets while experienced batsmen Jon Townsend, Travis Horvatek and Clint Rodger are set to take on Pomonal bowlers Lee Oliver, Al Mackay and Matthew Grinham.
