No doubt City Colts start to the 2019-20 Bathurst Orange Inter District Cricket competition hasn't gone to plan.
Last season's Bathurst District Cricket Association first grade runners-up have endured a difficult start to life in the revived inter-city competition, losing its opening three matches in the new campaign.
And this Saturday's fourth round match against Cavaliers might be the club's trickiest match yet, when Colts travel to Orange's Riawena Oval to face the team currently sitting in second on the ladder.
Colts have struggled for form this season, even with the likes of Western Zone representative stars Jaden Ekert, Henry Shoemark and Matt Stephen, who all played at the Country Championships in Canberra earlier this month.
Cavaliers are stacked with talent too, including skipper Matt Corben, who scored a massive 176 in the first innings of his side's win against CYMS last round.
Hugh Middleton has also been impressive with the bat of late, falling five runs short of a century against CYMS too.
Colts lost its opening two matches to city rivals Centennials Bulls, before hosting Orange rivals Kinross in round two and almost lost outright at Loco Oval.
Last round's Bathurst District Cricket Association first grade grand final rematch produced for misery for Colts too, suffering a big defeat to St Pat's Old Boys.
And while Colts have struggled, Centennials Bulls have surprised quite a few this season, having won two of its opening three matches and sitting in third place.
Bulls will be hoping to continue its strong start at home against undefeated Orange City at Morse Park 1, while top four-chasing Bathurst City travel to Wade Park to play CYMS, who will welcome back club favourite Al Dhatt into the host's line-up.
Rugby Union will host Centrals at the Sportsground, with both sides languishing towards the bottom of the ladder with just one win from their opening two games of the 2019-20 season.
The Bulldogs are currently in eighth, while Centrals are lingering a position below in ninth.
And in the final match of the round, St Pat's Old Boys will head to Orange for the second time in three rounds when it takes on Kinross, who has enjoyed the services of former Sydney University first grader James Larkin.
A win for St Pat's Old Boys would keep them in the top four, while a victory for Kinross would keep them in touching distance of the precious semi-final positions.
All matches round four matches in Bathurst Orange Inter District Cricket gets underway at 1.30pm.
