MCDFL - Navarre Grasshoppers are hopeful of putting a lack luster performance from last week behind them when they take on Campbell's Creek in round four of the Maryborough Castlemaine District Football League.

Navarre will travel to Campbells Creek on Sunday and will be looking to regain form.

The Grasshoppers had a tough hit out last week against an improved Talbot line up and lucky for them were able to pull away in the final term and grab the four points.

Coach Daniel Parkin will stick to his game structures despite this close encounter.

"Nothing changes to our preparations after playing in a close game," Parkin said.

"Games like these make you realise and understand that as a team you have to turn up and play every week, or face the fact that you will lose."

Knowing his team can't play a top team every week and that there will be lapses throughout the season, Parkin is hopeful it was a one off game.

"Hopefully it was just a once off and we turn up to play this week against Campbell's Creek," he said.

After one below average performance Navarre have no doubt that each of the individuals playing will bounce back with minimal negative affects from the previous clash.

Much like the past couple of weeks there are some aspects of the Campbells Creek's line up that are unknown to Navarre.

"They have won a couple of times and had a loss last weekend," Parkin said.

"Rumour has it they had seven senior players out.

"We will just have to bring our a game and have 22 players playing our style of football."

Campbells Creek have recruited a quality ruckman from the Frankston Dolphins in the Victorian Football League, meaning the Navarre big men should expect a tough time.

"Rhett Murphy Josh Fowkes and Zac Parry will have their work cut out from the first to the last bounce," Parkin said.

Campbell's Creek's Joel Smith will also require some attention to prevent him from kicking any early goals.
