Wickliffe-Lake Bolac will have the chance to extend its winning streak when it faces Caramut in round five on Saturday.

Caramut sit at the bottom of the leader and lost to the Ararat Eagles in the pre-interleague round.

The Magpies are coming off a strong performance against Great Western in which they won by 53 points in the round four match and sit in seventh position.

The Swans have struggled in the early part of the season and are the only team who has yet to pick up a win in the first four games.

The match at Caramut will provide the visitors with a chance to add to their percentage of 117, something that could be important in the final games of the season to grab a spot in the finals.

The Magpies have yet to hit their straps but a confidence-boosting win could be just what the team needs to start a streak of winning momentum.

A win will get the visitors within striking distance of the top four and move them to a win-loss record of 3-2.

Wickliffe-Lake Bolac kicked 18 behinds in the round four match, so accuracy in front of goal will be important but the Magpies will go into the match as heavy favourites at the Swans’ home ground.

Caramut will need to be at its best to cause the boilover and get the points against last year’s grand finalist.
