The Emu Valley Cricket Association Twenty20 finals picture will become clearer after Tuesday night's fourth round of matches.
The top two teams in each pool at the completion of five rounds qualifies for the semi-finals on February 9.
The match of the round in pool one on Tuesday night is at Strathfieldsaye where Emu Creek (1-1) hosts United (2-0).
With top team Mandurang having the bye, United could jump to the top of the table with a win, while Emu Creek needs a big win to keep its slim finals hopes alive.
In the other pool one match, Marong (0-2) is at home to West Bendigo (1-1).
In pool two, Spring Gully (2-0) appears to have a mortgage on one finals berth.
The Crows are at home against Axe Creek (0-2) on Tuesday night, while the winner of the California Gully (1-1) versus Sedgwick (1-1) game will be in the box seat to join Spring Gully in the finals.
