CKS SWIFTS step out in their final dress rehearsal prior to the Horsham District Football League finals series when they clash with Pimpinio tomorrow.

CKS Swifts will step out for their final dress rehearsal tomorrow prior to finals.

CKS Swifts will step out for their final dress rehearsal tomorrow prior to finals.

Despite the fact the young Tigers are sitting at the bottom of the ladder, Swifts will be showing no mercy and joint coach Paul Hanns is looking for a big effort from his players tomorrow.

Hanns said a big win at Pimpinio would be an ideal way to take some confidence into the finals series.

While tomorrow is the final round of home and away matches for the 2014 season, it is almost certain Swifts will clash with Kalkee in the qualifying final the following week.

Swifts are hopeful key forward Luke Mitchell will be available for this clash tomorrow. They are keen for him to get some game time prior to the finals.

They will however rest another key forward in Julian Carr and ruckman Ben Hargreaves because of the travelling involved for both players.

Pimpinio will be keen to end their season on a high, after failing to win a game so far this season.

"While they are at the bottom of the ladder, it will not be a walk in the park for us," Hanns said.

Hanns said the last quarter in the clash against Harrow Balmoral last week was what he considered the best football Swifts had played this season.

"It was never going to be easy at Harrow with both teams battling for a top three spot.

"We looked out of it during the third quarter, but the players dug deep and responded to the challenge and we will be looking for a repeat of this tomorrow.

"One thing we need is for all players to step up. Pimpinio are a young side, who will have a crack and if they get their tails up, they will be more than competitive.

"We must be physical at the football and play the game on our terms," Hanns said.
