Great Western will be a big chance of picking up its second win of the season when the Lions face Caramut on Saturday.
The Lions’ only win so far this season was against Ararat Eagles in round three but will go into the round nine match as favourites against the winless Swans.
Caramut is the only team yet to notch up a win and will be up against it.
It will also be a good chance for Great Western to develop confidence on the field with a percentage boost a possibility from the match.
Lions coach Will Bell said the team is not getting ahead of itself and will give the Swans a lot of respect.
“I think every week we just worry about what we can do, we have not got to play each team twice yet, so we do not know a lot about our opposition yet,” he said.
“You can see we have grown from the start of the season to now, there has been improvement each week and you can see that on the scoreboard.
“I do not get too caught up in the win-loss records, we just focus on us and we know if we bring our best, we are just as good as anyone on the day.
“We have identified we have given up a big quarter at times, so we are looking for a four quarter effort and if we can do that, we are confident we can get the points.”
First bounce is at 2.15pm at Caramut Recreation Reserve.
