After suffering defeats in the first round of the season, Coro and Leagues Club will look to get their season off the mark when they meet at West End Oval on Saturday afternoon.
Coro fell to an eight-wicket loss at the hands of Hanwood while Leagues lost by 143 runs to Exies so both sides will be hoping to bounce back from heavy defeats.
Leagues captain Paul Plummer, who missed the clash with Exies, said despite the loss there were positives to take from the game.
“Jacko (Jackson Hassan) had a good game on debut,” he said.
“He picked up the wicket of Phil Burge which isn’t a bad one to pick up. Chances are we will be calling on him throughout the season.”
There will be a few changes for this weekend for Leagues with a few key inclusions coming in but will also have a couple unavailable this weekend.
“I’m back and so is Brett (Hazelman) which gives us some options with the ball,” he said.
“Sati (Satvir Chahal) will miss the next couple of weeks, and Logan (Matheson) and Leachy (Ben Leach) will be missing this weekend.”
Having the two opening batsmen out heading into the weekend is less than preferable especially when Leach top-scored for the Panthers with 34 runs in their game against Exies.
However, Plummer said it gives a chance to second graders to step up and is happy with the depth he has at his disposal.
“We are going to give Conor Edenden a chance to step up,” he said.
“He has been looking pretty good in the nets, so it's an excellent chance for him.
“Babar Safdar will also be coming into the side again. We know we will get a couple of overs out of him.
“He picked up some crucial wickets last season and was willing to take on the bowling when he came into bat down the order.
“In saying that, Reece (Matheson) has been looking good in the nets almost as if he hasn’t stopped playing and from all reports, Andrew Madden looked good last weekend for his 13 runs before he was a bit unlucky.”
Coro is in a similar position to the Panthers with Tim Rand still missing for at least another week, but that won’t change the way Plummer approaches the game.
“I think most teams are in the same position where they have people missing early in the season,” he said.
“While Tim (Rand) is out this weekend and Haydn Pascoe is out for the season they still have plenty of depth.
“We won’t be taking them lightly that’s for sure.”
The first ball is set to be sent down at 1pm out at West End Oval on Saturday afternoon.
