Moyston-Willaura will face a hardened Hawkesdale-Macarthur team in round nine action on Saturday.

The Pumas are coming off a thumping 169-point win against Caramut but will need to ensure they are switched on from the start if they are to get the points against their sixth-placed opponents at Hawkesdale.

The visitors sit two games clear of third-placed Wickliffe-Lake Bolac and one game behind ladder leaders Lismore-Derrinallum but will be hoping for another strong performance to keep their momentum going.

Pumas forward John Vanderwaal will be important with the Hawkesdale-Macarthur defenders likely to pay close attention to the 2016 leading goal kicker.

The home team will have a lot to play for, with Hawkesdale-Macarthur likely to move up into the top five if they do get the win.

Moyston-Willaura will fancy their chances and will go into the match as favourites.

First bounce for the match will be at 2.15pm at Hawkesdale.
