2014 run home: Fight for finals positions | WFL Football

THREE teams will vie for fourth and fifth place on the Wimmera Football League ladder in the final three rounds of the season.

Minyip-Murtoa currently holds on to fourth spot, a game ahead of Dimboola in fifth and Ararat in sixth.

Saturday’s matches could start to make things a bit clearer.

The Burras will host Warrack Eagles, who they lost to by just one point earlier in the season.

A win would make their finals ambitions more secure, ahead of games against Stawell and Dimboola.

Ararat, which Dimboola replaced in the top five after round 13, will host the Roos in a warm-up final on Saturday.

If the Rats can win, it would be a major boost for their finals chances.

Games against Stawell and Nhill – which they would expect to win – will follow.

The Roos final two games have a higher degree of difficulty.

The reigning premiers will take on Horsham Saints and Minyip-Murtoa, who they have not beaten in two attempts each in 2014.

But with their season on the line, the Roos should be a chance to record wins in all three games.

At the top end of the ladder, Horsham is locked in a two-way race with Warrack Eagles for the minor premiership.

The Demons and Eagles will meet for the third time this season in round 15 in a match likely to decide which team ends up on top.

Horsham has a handy percentage buffer, which it is likely to improve against Nhill on Saturday.

The third-placed Horsham Saints will almost certainly finish in their current position.

The Saints should win against Stawell on Saturday, which would all but secure a double chance with two games to play.
