Third-placed Tatyoon and the fourth-placed Clubbers will have more than just six points at stake when they clash at Tatyoon on Saturday.

The loser of the round 10 A Grade match will likely finish the round out of the top four with only one match remaining to get back into the mix for finals action.

Youth Club bowlers will have to be at their best with Tatyoon a dominant team when at the crease.

With a clash against the Combine in the final round before finals, the home team will be hoping to lock in a top four spot with a win against the Clubbers during the next two weeks.

Youth Club is coming off a loss to Navarre and will need a better performance with the bat if the team is to get the points away from home.

Pleasant temperatures are expected for Saturday with the winner of the toss likely to send the other team into the field to have a bowl.

Tatyoon pitches can be hard to get a start on in the early few overs but if either team can get through the danger period, a high score could be up for grabs.

With Youth Club also in the mix for B Grade finals, it remains to be seen what changes will be made to its A Grade team but the squad cannot let consecutive games slip if they want to play finals this season.

The first ball will be bowled at Tatyoon Recreation Reserve at 1pm.
