The in-form Sandhurst and Bendigo United clash in the BDCA's match of the day for round five.
SANDHURST v BENDIGO UNITED
Weeroona Oval, 12.30pm
The Dragons and Redbacks are playing as well as any team in the competition.
Sandhurst is chasing a fourth-straight win for the first time since the premiership season of 2018-19.
The Redbacks have a good balance with bat and ball, led by in-form skipper Clayton Holmes.
Sandhurst needs to get a couple of early wickets to put pressure on the Redbacks' middle-order.
Last time: Sandhurst 8-260 d Bendigo United 136
Selection: Bendigo United
Man of the match tip: Clayton Holmes (Bendigo United)
GOLDEN SQUARE v EAGLEHAWK
Wade Street, 12.30pm
The Hawks were disappointed to drop their first game of the season last week and they should be able to bounce back with a victory.
The Borough struggled against Strathfieldsaye's spinners last week, so how they cope with Square skipper Liam Smith and leggie Jake Higgins will go a long way to deciding the outcome of the game.
The fragility of Golden Square's batting came to the fore in the loss to Bendigo United.
If the Dogs can bat first and post some sort of competitive score, then their bowlers will make life tough for the Borough.
Last time: Golden Square 145 d Eaglehawk 143
Man of the match tip: Nick Farley (Eaglehawk)
BENDIGO v STRATHDALE
Atkins Street, 12.30pm
After a free hit last week, Bendigo will get a better gauge of where it sits when it hosts Strathdale-Maristians.
The top-order will be the key for Bendigo. Last time these two sides met the Goers' top three scored eight runs between them.
The Suns have been strengthened by the return of James Vlaeminck after he had a short stint with Essendon, while talented young paceman Jack Pysing will make his first XI debut.
With Vlaeminck back on deck, it will be interesting to see what Suns' skipper Cam Taylor does with his batting order.
Last time: Bendigo 7-163 lt Strathdale-Maristians 4-164
Man of the match tip: Sam Johnston (Strathdale-Maristians)

WHITE HILLS v KANGAROO FLAT
Scott Street, 12.30pm
It's crunch time for the Demons and Roos. Loser of this match can more than likely kiss goodbye any hopes of playing finals.
White Hills is one victory ahead of the winless Roos, but the Demons' net run rate is that far inferior to every other team in the league, thanks to last week's debacle against Bendigo, that they're basically one game further behind the top teams.
Hard to trust either team on form, but the Roos might have the better depth to win a close game.
Last time: White Hills 8-152 lt Kangaroo Flat 5-156
Selection: Kangaroo Flat
Man of the match tip: Chris Barber (Kangaroo Flat)

HUNTLY-NORTH EPSOM v STRATHFIELDSAYE
Strauch Reserve, 12.30pm
The Jets have set a solid foundation for the season and now they need to build on it by not dropping points to the bottom team on the ladder.
With nine wickets in his past two games, Jets' spinner Savith Priyan is enjoying a purple patch of form, while opening batter Tim Wood has been a great recruit for the club.
The Power's cause will again hinge on the performances of Ryan Grundy, Adam Ward, Danushka Wijemanna and skipper Elliott Massina.
If a couple of them have a big day with bat or ball then the Power could pinch their first win of the season.
Last time: Huntly-North Epsom 6-208 d Strathfieldsaye 188
Man of the match tip: Chathura Damith (Strathfieldsaye)
Bendigo United 18
Golden Square 12
White Hills 6
Kangaroo Flat 0
Huntly-North Epsom 0
