NORADJUHA-TOOLONDO has been the form team of the competition since Christmas.
Now it has reigning premiers Rup-Minyip in its sights.
The Bullants have won both of their games in 2013 convincingly, with skipper Matt Combe leading by example.
Top-order batsman Rowan Scott said things were coming along nicely for his side and they were looking forward to the challenge against the Blue Panthers.
"It's always a good game when we play each other and we certainly won't be taking them lightly," he said. Rup-Minyip is hanging onto its spot in the top four but has three teams nipping at its heels.
A loss against the Bullants could put the Blue Panthers' flag defence hopes in serious jeopardy.
All-rounder Ryan Metelmann is likely to return after an overseas holiday, while Bullants keeper Garrett Liston will play his last day until mid-March.
Last year's grand finalists will square up at Horsham City Oval in a two-day fixture, starting tomorrow.
Horsham Saints will look to extend their winning streak to six when they take on Laharum at Dudley Cornell Park.
The Saints haven't lost since November 17 against Jung Tigers but will be without Chad and Jacob O'Beirne, Cameron Pickering and Steven Leith.
In-form paceman Shannon Waterworth, who starred with a five-wicket haul against Blackheath-Dimboola at the weekend, is in doubt but captain Gary Davidson and swing bowler Glenn O'Beirne are returning to the side.
Blackheath-Dimboola and Jung Tigers can both put pressure on the top four with a win at Dimboola Recreation Reserve.
The Tigers have slipped from second to fifth in the New Year, with veteran Marty Knight lacking support at the top of the order.
It is top versus bottom in the final game of the round, with Homers and Colts doing battle at Sunnyside.
