ONLY one finals spot remains up for grabs in the Horsham Sports and Leisure Central Wimmera Tennis Association's pennant division after round 15.
With three rounds left before the start of finals competition, Horsham Lawn Savage, Central Park Red and Horsham Lawn Bardell are in a three-way race to claim fourth place on the ladder.
Lawn Savage is in the box-seat to take out the last finals spot, sitting 10 points clear of Central Park Red in fourth position.
However Savage has the toughest run home of any side, playing the top three teams on the ladder in its final matches.
It has not beaten any of the top three sides this season.
Meanwhile, the Parkers have a much easier draw, playing the bottom three teams.
Bardell needs to win all three of its matches and hopes other results fall its way if its to have any chance of playing finals.
Savage player Graeme Wood said his team was prepared to fight for the last finals spot.
"We're well aware of how tight it is for fourth spot," he said.
"Our team has gotten better as the year has gone on.
"Hopefully we can pinch a win somewhere along the way."
