Port Lincoln football preview
WHILE the top four is very much set these four teams will look for momentum going into the finals, especially the top two who headline this weekend's matches.
Tasman v Mallee Park
Tasman and Mallee Park have one win against each other in 2019 and a win here would really provide a confidence boost going into finals.
Jace Rodda is possible to return for Tasman and Brent Gray is an expected exclusion, while the Peckers lineup is currently unchanged with Darryl Dudley, Kingsley Ware and Wes Bilney chances to be included.
Last time the Pecker defence, including Jerome Ah Kit-Burgoyne and Troy Simpson, kept the Roosters to just five goals. Defence will be key once again as will the clearance work from players like Casey Amos and Kingsley Bilney Jnr to hit dangerous forwards like Malcolm Miller, Ali Johncock and Tyrone Miller-Warren.
Tasman have their own fast ball movers but will need to play highly contested football to win the contests and get down to its dangerous trio of Brent Harris, Ben Daniels and Johann Wagner.
Expect a closer match to their last encounter, but Mallee Park have momentum behind them and should win by three to four goals.
Marble Range v Boston
Boston have one more good chance at a win in 2019, but it will not be easy as they travel to Wangary to face Marble Range, who are coming off three straight losses.
Rangers are expecting Kory Beard, Todd Owen and Sam Haskett back in while Brock Laube and Nick Franklin are out. For Tigers Jake Nicholls, Jack Shanley, Josh Paterson and Pete Rowe are possible inclusions while Tom Stevens and Chris McFarlane are expected out.
The Tiger defence could be the key to victory, Mitchell Hall continues to shine with his turnovers and look for drives from the back half by Sam Beare, Willy Woldt and Mitchell Garrett.
Rangers can make the most out of uncontested possessions and if players like Wade Hansen, Lance Appleby and Cody Pilgrim get the ball they can help drive it forward where spearhead Tynan Keeley will be waiting.
Boston will give a red hot go but Rangers are tipped to win by 20-30 points.
Lincoln South v Wayback
Wayback have won their last three games and could make it four straight against Lincoln South at Centenary.
Riley Hatcher, Dannen Blacker and Brayden Frost are pushing for Wayback selection. For the Eagles Matt and Paul Stelzer, along with Anton Story are expected to return but they will be without Levi McDonald, Max Williams and Tyson Pratt.
Wayback will look to get on top of Souths early, look to Shaun Maxfield, Ben Sampson and James Blewit to set up or create their own scoring opportunities while Souths will need to get on top with their defensive pressure. Expect a Wayback win by 30-40 points.
