SEPARATED by percentage, Kyneton and Maryborough have plenty to play for in Saturday's final hit-out in the Bendigo Football League season.

The Tigers and Magpies have equivalent win-loss records of 5-12, but Maryborough is a rung above the yellow and black.

Home turf advantage will be a plus for the Mark Adamson-coached Kyneton against the Pies.

Both teams have two of the league's best forwards.

Kyneton's Ben Weightman has kicked 59 goals and is second to Strathfieldsaye Storm star Stephen Milne for the Ron Best medal.

Weightman booted five goals in Kyneton's latest hit-out at home against Kangaroo Flat.

Maryborough's Matt Bond is on 46 on the goalkicking board.

The Tigers will be desperate to improve on their second half in this contest.

A week ago the Tigers were within two points of Kangaroo Flat at half-time.

By the final siren the Roos were up by 47 points.

Maryborough's first win of the year was against Kyneton at Barkers Oval, Princes Park in round nine.

A line-up jointly coached by Jamie Bond and Glenn Chadwick will be determined to end the season with another win at Tigerland.
