Ballarat SC's quest for promotion has taken a big hit at the weekend as the Reds went down in a shock loss on the road against Lara United.
After the two side's both found the back of the net in the first half, Ballarat couldn't find an answer to Lara's second goal, going down 2-1.
The loss hurts the Red's promotion hopes as they now drop two wins behind the ladder-leading Branstoneworth with eight games remaining.
The Reds past three games have been a roller-coaster of form including a 5-0 loss and a 7-0 victory.
Ballarat will be hoping to some more consistent form at home against West Point SC.
The two sides have met once before this season, with Ballarat coming away with a 1-0 win on the road.
The Reds will host West Point at Trekardo Park on Saturday at 3pm.
