Bendigo Spirit face a tough match against top-three team the UC Capitals on Friday night.
Spirit head into the match on the back of a narrow five-point loss to the Sydney Flames on Friday night.
"It was a disappointing loss for us against Sydney, it was one we knew we should've won," Spirit's Kara Tessari said.
"We're going to go hard at training this week for two big games."
After the match against Canberra, the team hit the road to play Townsville Fire on Sunday.
However, the focus for now is on the Capitals.
"They are a tough opponent, we know we will have our work cut out for us, but we're ready to give it our all."
Among the Capitals' squad is former Spirit WNBL Championship player Kelsey Griffin.
Spirit's Tessa Lavey was excited to come up against her former team-mate in Griffin.
"I really can't wait," Lavey said.
"I love the energy she brings onto the court, it will be great to catch up with her."
Lavey believes if the Spirit play four consistent quarters of basketball they would be able to end the team's four-game losing streak.
"If we play well, any team is beatable," Lavey said.
"We're going into the round looking for a win so we can make a big statement to the rest of the league.
"We will come out hungry for a win this Friday."
