The SMW Rovers can move closer to locking in a finals spot when they face Penshurst on Saturday.

The Rovers are closing in on a return to September action with a win away from home set to increase their finals chances.

Both teams are fighting for a finals spot alongside Wickliffe-Lake Bolac with all three teams locked on nine wins.

Only two of those teams can fit in the top five and a win against the Bombers will increase the Rovers’ chances of extending their season.

The Bombers have started to get some consistency after a slow start to the season and still have plenty of experience in the team.

The Rovers have got a variety of options in the forward line and will need to ensure they make the most of their chances if they are to get the points in the round 16 match-up. First bounce for the game is scheduled for 2.15pm at Penshurst.
