HORSHAM District league’s top two A Grade sides – Laharum and Natimuk United – are the only two safely headed for finals with positions three down to seven still up for grabs.
Even the Swifts, currently in third on 40 points, are just two games ahead of seventh-placed Noradjuha-Quantong.
The Swifts go head-to-head with Harrow-Balmoral at the weekend in what is shaping up to be a huge encounter.
The Southern Roos are sixth on 36 points, one game behind the Swifts and one game ahead of the Bombers.
With a middle section of the table that features Kalkee on 36 and Edenhope-Apsley on 40, the fight for a spot in the top six is heating up.
The Swifts and Southern Roos played out a close game earlier in the season with the Stawell-based club winning by one goal in round five.
Swifts coach Courtney Morrow said her side would be missing a couple of players for the game.
“Drew Smith and Laura Farrer will step up,” she said.
“The have A Grade experience so they will do a fine job.
The Baggies go into the match well-rested, enjoying the bye last weekend.
“We are all feeling rested and ready to finish the season off strongly,” she said.
“It was a great win last time against Harrow-Balmoral. We go in knowing it is a new game but we are full of confidence and know if we play our game we have what it takes to beat them.”
Elsewhere, Noradjuha-Quantong faces a huge test against Edenhope-Apsley as it tries to hunt down a finals spot.
Natimuk United should have no troubles when it hosts Taylors Lake, Jeparit-Rainbow and Pimpinio should match up well at Rainbow and Laharum welcomes Rupanyup.
