While Centennials Bulls are currently enjoying a successful Royal Hotel Cup campaign, the club's Bathurst District Cricket Association first grade season has been difficult.
With just two rounds of play before the play-offs get underway, Centennials are in last place and would need an absolute miracle to make the top three.
They sit some 20.99 points behind fourth place Bathurst City, with the latter just .25 points of third spot.
This weekend Bulls are up against City Colts, who still haven't confirmed their finals place, but who are well in the hunt for the minor premiership.
Knowing that Bulls have little hope to make the top three, captain Andrew Brown wants his team to go out and enjoy the two last rounds of cricket.
Brown's side has just managed the one win throughout the 2018-19 season, the only success against Rugby Union back in earlier in December, in the one-day format, which featured a century of runs by batsman Ryan Gurney.
Gurney's performance with the bat has made him the best run-scorer for his team, having scored 229 from out innings throughout the 2018-19 campaign, his figures the eighth best overall.
Saturday's game between Centennials Bulls and City Colts gets underway at 1.30pm ,the game to be played at the Bathurst Sportsground.
