Albury United could open up a league-winning advantage with victory against nearest rivals Wangaratta at Jelbart Park on Sunday.
The Red Devils drew 3-3 with St Pats last weekend to fall five points behind United and will be relying on results to go their way for the rest of the year if they lose to the Greens for a second time.
United escaped with a 5-4 victory at Wangaratta in round three, but have been pushed in their last two encounters by Melrose (2-0) and St Pats (3-2).
However, the league isn't the ultimate for star striker Alicia Torcaso.
"Somehow we've managed to sit on the top of the ladder, it was something we didn't expect coming into pre-season," she said.
"We've still got Patties one more time and Wang again and obviously (Albury) City.
"To get into the grand final has been our goal for quite some years now.
"The core group of ours has been together for a good six years now and we've tried so hard to conquer that last round of finals to get into the grand final and have slipped every time."
Also in sport:
Wangaratta coach Adam Burchell won't take much out of the last time they played United.
"It's taken us 30-35 minutes to actually get going and against United we were only peppering their goals at the end because they were down to 10 women," he said.
Burchell's view on the season is vastly different to Torcaso's.
"Being English, the league is more important because it shows you're the best team over the season," he said.
"But this is an Australian competition, so technically the cup is more important.
"As coach, I just want to win silverware this season. The amount of work the girls have put in the past two or three years, they deserve it."
