HORSHAM Saints will get a much-needed boost ahead of their do-or-die elimination final against Minyip-Murtoa at Horsham City Oval on Sunday.
With the North Ballarat Rebels not playing finals, Darcy Tucker, Jacob O'Beirne, James Richards and Keegan Mellington are all available to play.
Add to that returning pair Addison Milner and Pat Knott and the Saints are shaping up nicely, but a question mark still surrounds Heath Kelm's knee injury.
Coach Brendan Broadbent said things were looking good heading into the business end of the season and his players were feeling fresh after last week's bye.
"It's a good position to be in and there will be guys that go back to the reserves," he said.
Broadbent expects another exciting tussle against the Burras, with both games this season going down to the wire.
"They really matched us up well and we're one win each this season, so hopefully we can go one up on the ledger," he said.
"Our players have really got to go in hard at the footy and win contested possessions, there's no second chances on Sunday."
Minyip-Murtoa coach Scott Arnold said his charges were pumped for September action.
"The aim was always to make finals, so we're excited," he said.
Arnold said the Burras needed to be at their best to end the Saints' season.
"We just need quick ball movement and to get out hands on the footy first," he said.
Northern Blues-listed big man Kieran Delahunty is a chance to return to his home club, but Darcy Cameron and Liam Newell's seasons are over.
Matt Fiedlieb is another in a race against time to play finals.
The winner plays the loser of tomorrow's qualifying final between Horsham and Warrack Eagles.
