Going into the final round of the Ballarat Football Netball League A-grade season, three teams remain in contention for the last two remaining finals spots.
Ballarat, Melton South and Bacchus Marsh will all be hoping for victories at the weekend to secure its spot in the post-season.
The Swans have perhaps the easiest path to a finals appearance, facing the bottom of the ladder Darley Devils on the road. A Swans victory would ensure the team a finals spot if either Bacchus Marsh or Melton South lose.
The Cobras and Panthers will have a significantly harder task at the weekend, facing top-two sides Sunbury and North Ballarat City respectively. Neither team has beaten the Lions or North so far this season.
A victory for either team would lock the winner into finals, regardless of the Ballarat v Darley result.
Elsewhere Redan will host Melton while Lake Wendouree heads on the road to try and gain some momentum for finals against Sebastopol. East Point has the final-round bye.
