Ground: Quantong Recreation Reserve, Saturday, 2.20pm.

Umpires: L. Campbell and T. Pritchett.

Last time they met: Round one, 2014. Edenhope-Apsley 22.14 (146) d Noradjuha-Quantong 7.13 (55).

WILL it be a case of no Fev, no worries for Edenhope-Apsley, or will Noradjuha-Quantong make up for a disappointing season with a win on Saturday?

The last meeting between the sides was memorable for the show put on by two-time Coleman Medallist and former Carlton and Brisbane star Brendan Fevola. He booted 12 goals to lead the Saints to a 91-point win in a one-off exhibition match.

While the Saints' forward line will have a different look to last time, coach Grant Coxon said the team could still pull off another big win.

"It's clearly a must-win game for us to get back on the winners' list," he said.

"Early in the year we got off to good starts and played four quarters of footy, which we need to get back to.

"The amount of ball we had inside our 50 was good the last time we played them, so as long as we get the supply down there that we've lacked in the past two weeks, we should be alright."

Saint Tom Clissold shapes as the key forward for his team in Fevola's absence.

Clissold has booted 29 goals this season, ranking him third in the league.

Taylor Milner is in doubt for the game after suffering a hamstring injury.

Hamstring worries have also plagued key Bomber Jason Kerr, who is no certainty to play.

Noradjuha-Quantong coach Jarred Combe said his team was moving forward with a fresh outlook.

"We've spoken about trying to put the first half of the year behind us and working as hard as we can to turn the second half around," he said.

"They're pretty even all over the ground so we know it will be hard.

"Fev definitely had an impact for them, but he wasn't the only reason for the margin blowing out."

Combe said having all his players stick to the game plan was crucial.
