Ground: Dock Lake Reserve, tomorrow, 2.20pm.

Umpires: Wimmera Football League Umpires Group.

Last time they met: Round seven, 2014. Taylors Lake 18.17 (125) d Rupanyup 13.8 (86).

TAYLORS Lake and Rupanyup both fancy their chances of snagging a late consolation win when they meet at Dock Lake Reserve on Saturday.

Both are out of finals contention, but the lure of at least one more win before the close of the season is still strong.

The Lakers can potentially finish in sixth position as the top non-finals team if they win their final two games, while the Panthers are searching for their first victory against a team other than Pimpinio.

Rupanyup coach Mick Finnigan said his team wanted to make up for a disappointing effort against Noradjuha-Quantong at the weekend.

"We were pretty ordinary at the weekend, but in saying that we had a few late withdrawals," he said.

"Tomorrow we'll have at least four inclusions in Paul Trotter, Scott Finnigan, Campbell Matthews and Geoff Rundell, which should give us a good element of confidence.

"They've got some good players, but I'd like to think we can overcome them if we play our best footy."

Lakers assistant coach Pat Purcell said his side was equally confident and keen for a win.

Tim Kelm will return to the side in his 300th match, but otherwise there should be few changes.

"At the start of the year our aim was to have at least six wins, and if we beat them tomorrow we'll achieve that goal," Purcell said.

"We proved at the weekend we can match it with Harrow-Balmoral and some of the better teams when we play good football now we just have to be consistent and play full quarters instead of 10 or 15-minute patches."
