BRIGHT co-coach Regan Alexander believes his team has little room for error in the run to the Ovens and King league finals.
The Mountain Men are sitting outside the top-six on percentage but have a tough fortnight ahead with clashes against ladder leader Glenrowan and fourth-placed Bonnie Doon.
Alexander is focusing solely on the Tigers at Bright on Saturday.
“It will be a pretty big test,” Alexander said.
“You always look forward to playing the best sides,
“We’ll give it a red-hot go.
“It’s going to be a tight finish to the year and we will have to be on the ball for the rest of the year.
“We have dropped two matches we shouldn’t have so hopefully we can make up for that in the run home.”
Glenrowan is the only undefeated side in the league after eight rounds and Bright’s task will be even tougher with Tom McDonagh, Ben Bond, Nathan Jones and Rick Clarke unavailable this weekend.
On the positive side, youngsters Nathan Smith and Jake Pronk will return to the fray.
Milawa will start odds-on favourites against Greta, Goorambat will struggle against Tarrawingee, Moyhu look too strong for North Wangaratta, King Valley will struggle to counter Bonnie Doon and Whorouly meet Benalla All Blacks.
