The finest of margins sit between City Colts and a fall out of the Bathurst District Cricket Association first grade top three but a meeting against a struggling Centennials Bulls at the Sportsground gives them a chance to improve their standing.
But regardless of where their opponents may sit on the ladder Colts captain Matt Stephen isn't one to let that influence how he approaches the game.
"You can't take anyone for granted and I know what they're capable of with the players they've got," he said.
"We have to try and play our best cricket because it's getting to the pointy end of the year where we need it."
Often it's those with nothing to lose who can play their more natural game, and that's a position Bulls find themselves in but not Colts.
With a match against defending champions Rugby Union to close out their regular season Colts need to gather as many points as they can from this match.
Colts were slaughtered by new competition leaders St Pat's Old Boys last round and Stephen said it was because of one of the team's biggest recurring issues.
"Batting," he said.
"We've been lacking there for a couple of years, to be fair.

"There's always one or two who put their hand up and it's now up to the rest of us to dig a bit deeper and try to take more responsibility.
"The reality is that if we don't play at our best then we've only got four days of cricket left for the rest of the year."
The two clubs have met on just the occasion this season where Colts got home unconvincingly on the back of a middle order resurgence.
Colts are hoping to continue their streak of semi-finals appearances to a fifth consecutive season.
The last time they failed to reach the semi-finals was in the 2013-14 season when they finished fifth.
