Rovers set for battle to retain top four spot

SMW Rovers will be at home for the top four clash against Lismore-Derrinallum on Saturday.

The fourth-placed Rovers will go into the round five match having only dropped one game but will have to hand the Demons their first defeat of the year if the home team is to remain in the top four.

The Rovers have improved on-field from last year and a week off due to interleague should have the players fresh, considering some of the Demons players were involved in the game.

Since round two, the Rovers have only managed scores of 76 and 58, so defence will no doubt be a priority for the home team in giving itself a chance of getting the points but will also need to focus on scoring enough goals, only scoring more than 78 points twice this season.

The winner should remain in the top four with the loser a chance of dropping out.
