When asked what his Swans side would need to improve to get a result from their clash with Coolamon this weekend, Griffith coach Greg Dreyer had a simple answer.
"Our skill level."
Despite the occasional promising performances, the Swans have found themselves the front runners for the wooden spoon this season, with just one win from their opening 12 clashes.
But Dreyer says the side's position in the table isn't an excuse to stop trying and these final games are a chance to set a springboard for next season.
"We don't want to just finish the season and pack up shop completely, we need to continue with our fitness and get back together pretty quickly and look to next year," he said.
"Another 12 months with some of the younger blokes, giving them a chance to play more football and gain that experience against bigger blokes will help us become a better side.
"We've just had a week off to freshen up so we're looking to still play with plenty of enthusiasm and intensity and play the season out as strong as we can."

The last time the Swans faced the Coolamon Rovers was arguably one of their strongest performances of the year, as they looked set to pull off a mighty upset, before eventually losing by just 9 points.
Dreyer admits he expects this weekend's match to be even more difficult.
"Hopefully we can show we've improve but they're a top five side so it will be very hard," he said.
"And they've just come off a loss so they'll be pretty fired up to get a win over us so we just need to be prepared for that."
Leigh Owen is the only major absense for the Griffith side through injury, after picking up a knee injury against the Wagga Tigers in Round 13.
"We're hoping to have Jack Powell back and a few other boys Dean Villata and Oswald Hermann who are coming back from injuries via Reserve Grade," Dreyer said.
"But yeah we should be getting close to having everyone back bar Leigh."
The Griffith Swans will be taking on the Coolamon Rovers at 2:10pm on Saturday at the Exies Sports Club.
