It's a mouthwatering weekend in the Football Mid North Coast Premier League as the four top sides will battle each other.
The fourth-placed Macleay Valley Rangers take on the second placed Port Saints while the competition leaders Port United host third placed Wallis Lake.
The results will have a massive impact on the positioning of the top four with second to fourth currently separated by only one competition point. Port United are eight points clear at the top and have all-but secured the minor premiership.
Cementing a top three position will guarantee a spot in the second week of the finals while the fourth placed side will enter an elimination final in week one.
While Rangers coach Chris Walker is taking each game as it comes, he admits this Saturday's contest will have a big role in determine their position for the finals.
"It's obviously important to finish as high as possible on the table and this game will go a long way in determining the position we finish in at the end of the season," Walker told the Argus.
"But there's still five games to go and a lot can happen after this weekend.
"We are just focused on playing well, getting the win and picking up the maximum competition points."
As the finals series approaches, Walker claims winning these games can contribute to "building confidence".
"Beating a top team and showing we can match it with the best in the competition will go a long way towards the team building confidence," he said.
"It will give us a lot of belief if we end up facing them in the finals."
Walker missed the 4-2 defeat when the two sides clashed earlier this season, but has heard glowing reviews from his teammates and expects to face a stiff challenge.
"They have shown they are a top side this year with the results they have earned," Walker said.
"We will need to be at our best, especially in defence as they have a couple of dangerous players up front."
Macleay Valley won't field a full strength side but the injuries have opened the door for Mitch Korn to make his first start in first grade.
The junior made his debut for the top grade off the bench earlier this season but he will start in the centre back position against Port Macquarie.
"I think Mitch will do well, he has been solid for us when he has came off the bench," Walker said.
"He's a young and quality player and I think he will be able to handle it."
The first grade match kicks off at Findlay Park at 3pm this Saturday, reserve grade begins at 1pm.
