Ground: Dock Lake Reserve, Saturday, 2.20pm.

Umpires: D. Gloury and A. Hallam.

Last time they met: Round one, 2014. Taylors Lake 24.5 (149) d Pimpinio 12.8 (80).

TAYLORS Lake has an opportunity to achieve what it has not done since round 16, 2012 win back-to-back games.

The Lakers face winless side Pimpinio at Dock Lake Reserve tomorrow and are coming off a morale-boosting win over Noradjuha-Quantong on Saturday.

Lakers coach Deek Roberts said winning in consecutive weeks would be a big step forward for the club.

"I did mention that to the boys this week because we've got a good opportunity," he said.

"Going from our round one result against them you'd be confident, but I think they've improved since round one.

"Our first quarters have been terrible and they'll definitely be looking for a chance to come out and win one as well, so we have to be on our guard."

Leigh Malseed played on a one-game permit for the Lakers but will return to South West District Football League side Heywood.

Pimpinio is hopeful of regaining some injured players, but will wait to see how they recover from training.

Coach Mal Coutts said it was a chance for his team to make an impact on the scoreboard.

"Hopefully the scores will be a bit closer tomorrow because we're playing more competitive football than we were at the start of the year," he said.

"We're winning a bit more of the footy, but we still leak easy goals and struggle to put a score on the board ourselves, so we want to improve in that area.

"If we play like we're capable of, we'll make it an interesting match."
