Two-and-a-half hours of footy will determine the finals fate of White Hills and Leitchville-Gunbower.
After 17 rounds of the HDFNL season, the Demons and Bombers go head-to-head at Scott Street on Saturday for a spot in next weekend's elimination final.
Leitchville-Gunbower's recent history is littered with success - two grand finals and four-straight grand final appearances.
White Hills' has rarely tasted September action. The Demons played in the 2017 elimination final, while they haven't advanced past the second week of a finals series since the 2005 grand final.
With limited success of late it's been a finals-like atmosphere at Scott Street this week.
"It's a must-win game which is exciting for the club and the playing group,'' White Hills' Brent Millar said.
"It was a very energetic night at training on Thursday night and we've had great numbers on the track.
"We had some selection issues which is good, so we know we're going into the game with a really solid team. We know Leitchy is going to be really tough because they have such a good core group of players."

Leitchville-Gunbower edged out White Hills by 10 points in their previous encounter this year.
The Bombers go into the game one win and 0.63 per cent ahead of White Hills. The Demons probably need to win by more than a goal to ensure they cover the percentage gap.
Mount Pleasant needs to defeat Huntly to cement its first finals berth in five years. If the Hawks can upstage Mounts at Toolleen then the Blues would need White Hills to lose to ensure they remain in the top five.
Minor premier North Bendigo and third-placed Colbo meet at Atkins Street. While positions on the ladder can't change the match is an opportunity to gain a mental edge.
In the final game of the home and away season, Elmore hosts Heathcote in a twilight encounter from 4.15pm.
