With five games left to go in the season, Yoogali SC are gearing up for the most crucial run of their season, as they look to scrape into finals.
The Griffith side currently sit in joint fourth, level on points with Canberra White Eagles FC, however the team from the capital does have two games in hand.
Yoogali SC will travel to Wagga Wagga this weekend as they look to kickstart a memorable season-saving run to end the season against the Wagga City Wanderers.
Coach Luke Santolin says every game from here on out is absolutely crucial to how his side will look back on this season.
"We've got five games left and they're five grand finals," Santolin said.
"That's how we've got to be approaching this because we've got no margin for error left."
"Every game is a grand final now and it's absolutely crucial we win this weekend and win well because it is so tight on the table."
"When things click we are a dangerous side but it has been our consistency which has been the drama this year," Santolin said.
"But following that performance against O'Connor I'm hoping we can bottle that tenacity and energy and replicate it this Saturday and hopefully the goals will flow."
"But we can't underestimate Wagga because they're a good side."
Striker Danny Roche will miss the game through suspension following his red card last weekend, but Santolin says he is confident new signing Joshua Keenan can fill the hole left by Roche's absense.
"Keenan is a former Yoogali junior who is back in Griffith after his university got locked down," Santolin said.
"He's quite a sharp attacking threat so we're excited to have him back in the lineup this weekend."
Yoogali SC will be taking on the Wagga City Wanderers at 2:15pm on Saturday at Gissing Oval.
