There's plenty at stake for both football sides when Romsey and Riddell meet this Saturday.
It's the only time the two neighbouring clubs play one another in the Riddell League's home and away rounds this season.
The Redbacks have won their four matches at home, including victories over the powerful Diggers Rest and Rupertswood combinations, and hold sixth position on the ladder.
The Bombers, last season's runners-up, are seventh, with three wins and four losses.
Lose here, and the Bombers can virtually kiss goodbye to any chance of a finals appearance.
Undefeated ladder leader Macedon is "sitting pretty" in top spot with a huge percentage of 323.20 after seven rounds. The Cats know they can expect a testing time when they travel to take on third-placed Sunbury Kangaroos.
Lancefield found Diggers Rest far too strong on June 3, and anticipate more tough opposition when fourth-placed Wallan arrive at Tigerland.
Fresh from kicking 33 goals to demolish Broadford, an improving Woodend-Hesket should gain a third win of the season at Rockbank's expense.
In the remaining matches, Diggers Rest and Rupertswood will be out to boost percentage at the expense of respective opponents Broadford and Melton Centrals.
Current ladder: Macedon 28, Diggers Rest 20, Sunbury Kangaroos 20, Wallan 20, Rupertswood 16, Romsey 16, Riddell 12, Melton Centrals 12, Woodend-Hesket 8, Lancefield 4, Rockbank 4, Broadford 0.
