The coming matches are proving crucial for Yoogali SC as they look to fight for their rights to play in the NPL2 finals series this season.
This weekend will be the first of three straight home games, which will see them face off with third-placed Queanbeyan City.
The Yoogali side will be heading into the clash off the back of a nil-all draw against Brindabella Blues which saw them fall out of the top four on goal difference.
While knowing the result wasn't what the side was after in a perfect world, coach Luke Santolin felt it was a result that moved them forward.
"It's not what we wanted, but it was another makeshift line-up, I think a draw was probably a fair result," he said.
"On a synthetic pitch, I think we lacked a little bit of quality in our final product.
"We had no trouble getting the ball from defence to midfield and up to the attacking third, but it was up there where I think we struggled with quality and a bit of creativity.
"We are going to try and work on that this week. It's a symptom of inconsistent line-ups. Whenever we change a couple of players from our front four, we seem to struggle to unlock our opposition defence."
This is why the next six weeks, which sees the Yoogali side play five games at home, with the one away game being in Wagga, are so crucial for their chances of securing a top-four berth.
"We never have excuses, but when we are at home, it gives us more players at our disposal, it allows us to hopefully play two fresh 11s," he said.
"We are going to need it because we struggle on the road, so we need to make the most of the next six weeks when we are only away once."
It won't be an easy task for the Yoogali side this weekend up against a Queanbeyan, which has plenty of quality.
"They have thrown the kitchen sink at things this year," he said.
"They bolstered their line-up with a lot of ex-NPL1 players, and they have made no secret to the fact that they are trying to get promoted.
"Then you have us who have had an up and down season but make no mistake at our best we believe we have got what it takes.
"It will just be a case of seeing who is available on Thursday and selecting the right line-up, which we think can not only nullify their strengths but also bring out the best in us."
This weekend will see Samuel Raciti come back into the side alongside Joe Preece while Jacob Donadel is nursing a niggle, but Santolin feels Donadel should be able to play on Sunday.
The inclusion of Preece should help the troubles Yoogali experienced against Brindabella in the final third.
"You can't replace a player like Joey," he said.
"I think every team in the competition would like someone like him.
"He is an animal in defence and very silky on the ball, so he really adds a couple of different dynamics to our side."
The action at Solar Mad Stadium will get underway at 11.45am with the under 23s clash, while the first graders will kick off at around 2pm.
