KANIVA-LEEOR United will look to return to the winners list when it visits Kingston on Saturday.

The Cougars suffered a disappointing 51-point loss to Padthaway at the weekend and will fancy their chances against the winless Saints.

Cougars coach Neil Reeve said his side had worked hard since the loss.

"It wasn't the result we were after, so we've had plenty to work on," he said.

"They worked a lot harder than us, used the footy better than us and their pressure was better than ours.

"We've worked on a few things where we thought we lacked more on our fitness and workrate.

"Last round Kingston took it right up to Keith in a high-scoring game, so we're under no illusions there's no easy games in this league."

The Padthaway match was the Cougars' first hit-out since round one - with a three-week gap in between because of a bye and the Easter break.

Reeve said the Cougars had lost Melbourne-based player Ben Stallion to a club closer to home, while Lachlan Seed and Tim Boyd could miss with injury.

Reeve said vice-captain Shane Vivian was close to returning from a calf strain.

Border Districts will target back-to-back victories against visitor Naracoorte at Goroke.

The Demons remain the league's only undefeated team after three rounds, but will face an Eagles side confident from its breakthrough 84-point thumping of Kybybolite at the weekend.

In other matches, Bordertown will clash with Lucindale, Keith will host Mundulla and Kybybolite will visit Penola.
